Happy (early) Birthday, Tim- a Daily Double's yours at the end of said category w/ $800; Jon has half that ($400) & Anna-Lise has half of the champ's early score ($200). Here's the $1K clue for Tim:

The commemoration of this former U.S. Senator's June 3, 1808 birthday's a legal holiday in several Southern states.


Jefferson Davis doesn't come to mind, so Timothy's $200 in the red...well, make that $800 as we go to break; Anna-Lisa leads Jon $1,800-$1K in the meantime.

THE RIVER OF HISTORY
A FEW 4-LETTER WORDS
MY BIG FAT GREEK LIT CATEGORY

The $800 & $1,200 The River of History answers are both TSs, but Jon picks up a DD in the $1,600 screen w/ $5K & is $1,600 off the pace. He wagers $1.5K on the following:

Until the Erie Canal opened, this 981-mile tributary of the Mississippi was the main route west for goods & people.


"What is the Ohio River?"...that's right for an increase to $6.5K & cuts the deficit to a Benjamin. Even though Tim has captured the DD in the $1,600 Nature window, he's in danger of possibly going back in the hole w/ $1,800 showing in his bank; Jon's at $6,900 & Anna-Lise's in five figures to the tune of $11,900. Tim takes the $2K chance on:

The Moonflower, whose blossoms open in the evening, is a fragrant variety of this A.M. flower.


"What is the Morning Glory?"...yes indeed for $3,800. The first three clues in the In Utah Row column go unrevealed because of time.
