Drunk History's Stonewall is more accurate than many sober ones

I did not know that the first act of defiance was to fuck up the mirror behind the bar.

“Testimony about the primacy of Marsha Johnson’s role is widespread but generally second- or even thirdhand. …after the police entered the bar Marsha threw a shot glass into a mirror…” https://books.google.com/books?id=j04jLSvGNSMC&pg=PA298#v=onepage&q&f=false


Should have thrown the glass at a cop’s head, not something valuable like a bar mirror.
