Re: Q: What was the significance of the dates Sept 3 - 13, 1752, in the USA?

For real.  England and the colonies switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar and had to eliminate those days.  Eventually all countries switched to the Gregorian calendar, some before England and some after, and all lost days in doing so.
