Creation of the Sandwich
The annals of English history report that John Montague was the 4th Earl of Sandwich. He was born on this day in 1718. Among other things, he was a heavy gambler. Montague often spent many long hours in London’s gambling parlors. In 1762, he created the sandwich, by putting meat between two pieces of bread. This allowed him to remain at the gambling table for long periods of time. Obviously, the sandwich was named after him.
