I must confess that I am a history junkie and a bit of a nerd. I am still working on the first of the “My Heroes series” of posts that I promised to deliver earlier this week. These individuals have been so influential in my life, I am having difficulty putting into words what they mean to me. I apologize for the delay. In the mean time, as I was trying to relax and unwind a little from work, I decided to see what happened in history. My search led me here. Here are some highlights from this day in case you are interested. I highly recommend you check out the site. #historynerdsunite
- Presidents Lincoln (1864) and Kennedy (1960) were elected to the Oval Office.
- Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen (1845-1923) becomes the first person to observe X-rays
- The Louvre opens (1794)
- The Announcement of Margaret Mitchell’s birth was Gone with the Wind (1900)
- “I’m your huckleberry.” The real Doc Holliday succumbed to TB. (1887)
Thanks for checking in. Check back later this week for the beginning of the Heroes series.
