Feathered friends

The Lacey Act of 1900 was passed to stop the killing of 1oos of thousands of birds, including entire breeding colonies of over 10,000 as the feather fad boomed into the 1850s. Marie Antionette puportedly wore a feather plumed headdress during the reign of Louis the XVI which ignited the trend.

However she never said "let then eat cake."
