This week in history

(KRON) — The week of March 18th proved to be an eventful one.  In 1905, Franklin Delano and Eleanor Roosevelt married, uniting two of the most influential people of the century.  Britain also repealed the Stamp act in 1766 which taxed all paper.  This week in history also saw the largest art heist in history.  13 paintings were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardener museum in Boston.  Bandits made off with over $100 million in art.
