Three Islands...11,000 Virgins

On January 17th, 1917 the United States purchased the 
Virgin Islands from Denmark.  Upon learning that, in fact,
there were no virgins on the island the US tried in vain to 
back out of the deal but finally took possession of the 
islands of St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas
on March 31, 1917. 

The Historical Inebriant:  Virgin Mary - Vodka optional
