Default Re: The "Today in History..." Thread

Today is Wednesday, March 2, the 61st day of 2011. There are 304 days left in the year.

Today's Highlights in History:

On March 2, 1861, the state of Texas, having seceded from the Union, was admitted to the Confederacy. The Territory of Nevada came into existence under an act signed by President James Buchanan.

On this date:

In 1793, the first president of the Republic of Texas, Sam Houston, was born near Lexington, Va.

In 1836, the Republic of Texas formally declared its independence from Mexico.

In 1877, Republican Rutherford B. Hayes was declared the winner of the 1876 presidential election over Democrat Samuel J. Tilden, even though Tilden had won the popular vote.

In 1899, Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state was established.

In 1917, Puerto Ricans were granted U.S. citizenship as President Woodrow Wilson signed the Jones-Shafroth Act.

In 1939, Roman Catholic Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli (puh-CHEL'-ee) was elected pope on his 63rd birthday; he took the name Pius XII.

In 1943, the World War II Battle of the Bismarck Sea began; U.S. and Australian warplanes were able to inflict heavy damage on a Japanese convoy.

In 1977, the U.S. House of Representatives adopted a strict code of ethics.

In 1989, representatives from the 12 European Community nations agreed to ban all production of CFC's (chlorofluorocarbons) by the end of the 20th century.

In 1990, more than 6,000 drivers went on strike against Greyhound Lines Inc. (The company, later declaring an impasse in negotiations, fired the strikers.)

Ten years ago: The United Nations tried in vain to persuade Afghanistan's ruling Taliban to reverse its decision to destroy a pair of giant, ancient statues of Buddha and other Buddhist relics that the regime considered idolatrous.

Five years ago: President George W. Bush and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh (MAHN'-moh-hahn SING) announced a landmark civilian nuclear cooperation deal in New Delhi. A suicide attacker rammed an explosives-packed car into American diplomat David Foy's car in Karachi, Pakistan, killing Foy and three others. The Senate voted 89-10 to renew the USA Patriot Act. "Killer nurse" Charles Cullen, who'd murdered 22 patients in New Jersey alone, was sentenced in Somerville to spend the rest of his life in prison.

One year ago: Authorities in San Diego County found the body of 17-year-old Chelsea King, who'd been missing since Feb. 25, 2010. (John Albert Gardner III later pleaded guilty to raping and murdering King and another victim, 14-year-old Amber Dubois; he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.)

(Stations: Rock musician Casey, one name, is correct)

Today's Birthdays: Actor John Cullum is 81. Author Tom Wolfe is 81. Former Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev is 80. Actress Barbara Luna is 72. Actor Jon Finch is 70. Author John Irving is 69. Singer Lou Reed is 69. Actress Cassie Yates is 60. Actress Laraine Newman is 59. Former Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis., is 58. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is 56. Singer Jay Osmond is 56. Pop musician John Cowsill (The Cowsills) is 55. Tennis player Kevin Curren is 53. Country singer Larry Stewart (Restless Heart) is 52. Rock singer Jon Bon Jovi is 49. Blues singer-musician Alvin Youngblood Hart is 48. Actor Daniel Craig is 43. Rock musician Casey (Jimmie's Chicken Shack) is 35. Rock singer Chris Martin (Coldplay) is 34. Actress Heather McComb is 34. Actress Bryce Dallas Howard is 30. NFL quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is 29. Actor Robert Iler ("The Sopranos") is 26.

Thought for Today: "Nothing ever really sets human nature free, but self-control." Phyllis Bottome, English writer (1884-1963).

Today in History March 8

Today is Shrove Tuesday, March 8, the 67th day of 2011. There are 298 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On March 8, 1862, during the Civil War, the ironclad CSS Virginia rammed and sank the USS Cumberland and heavily damaged the USS Congress, both frigates, off Newport News, Va.

On this date:

In 1782, the Gnadenhutten (jih-NAY'-duhn-huh-tuhn) massacre took place as more than 90 Indians were slain by militiamen in Ohio in retaliation for raids carried out by other Indians.

In 1854, U.S. Commodore Matthew C. Perry made his second landing in Japan; within a month, he concluded a treaty with the Japanese.

In 1874, the 13th president of the United States, Millard Fillmore, died in Buffalo, N.Y., at age 74.

In 1917, Russia's "February Revolution" (so called because of the Old Style calendar used by Russians at the time) began with rioting and strikes in Petrograd. The U.S. Senate voted to limit filibusters by adopting the cloture rule.

In 1930, the 27th president of the United States, William Howard Taft, died in Washington at age 72.

In 1944, two days after an initial strike, U.S. heavy bombers resumed raiding Berlin during World War II.

In 1960, Democrat John F. Kennedy and Republican Richard M. Nixon won the New Hampshire presidential primary.

In 1965, the United States landed its first combat troops in South Vietnam as 3,500 Marines were brought in to defend the U.S. air base at Da Nang.

In 1971, Joe Frazier defeated Muhammad Ali by decision in what was billed as "The Fight of the Century" at Madison Square Garden in New York. Silent film comedian Harold Lloyd died in Beverly Hills, Calif., at age 77.

In 1988, 17 soldiers were killed when two Army helicopters from Fort Campbell, Ky., collided in mid-flight.

Ten years ago: The Republican-controlled House voted for an across-the-board tax cut of nearly $1 trillion over the next decade, handing President George W. Bush a major victory only 48 days into his term. Scott Waddle, the embattled commander of the Navy submarine that collided with a Japanese fishing vessel off Hawaii, offered a tearful apology to the families of some of the victims. Dame Ninette de Valois, founder of the Royal Ballet, died in London at age 102.

Five years ago: Iran threatened the United States with "harm and pain" if the U.S. tried to use the U.N. Security Council to punish Tehran for its suspect nuclear program. Six months after Hurricane Katrina, President George W. Bush got a close-up look at the remaining mountains of debris, abandoned homes and boarded-up businesses in New Orleans. The Hornets played their first game at The New Orleans Arena since Katrina; they lost to the Los Angeles Lakers, 113-107. NFL owners agreed to the players' union proposal, extending the collective bargaining agreement for six years.

One year ago: President Barack Obama made a spirited, shirt-sleeved appeal for passage of health care legislation during a visit to Arcadia University in Pennsylvania. A magnitude 6 earthquake struck eastern Turkey, killing at least 41 people.

Today's Birthdays: Actress Sue Ane (correct) Langdon is 75. Baseball player-turned-author Jim Bouton is 72. Actor-director Micky Dolenz is 66. Singer-musician Randy Meisner is 65. Pop singer Peggy March is 63. Baseball Hall-of-Famer Jim Rice is 58. Singer Gary Numan is 53. NBC News anchor Lester Holt is 52. Actor Aidan Quinn is 52. Country musician Jimmy Dormire is 51. Actress Camryn Manheim is 50. Actor Leon (no last name) is 48. Rock singer Shawn Mullins (The Thorns) is 43. Actress Andrea Parker is 41. Actor Boris Kodjoe is 38. Actor Freddie Prinze Jr. is 35. Actor James Van Der Beek is 34. Rhythm-and-blues singer Kameelah Williams (702) is 33. Rock singer Tom Chaplin (Keane) is 32. Rock musician Andy Ross (OK Go) is 32. Rhythm-and-blues singer Kristinia (kris-teh-NEE'-ah) DeBarge is 21.

Thought for Today: "If there is any principle of the Constitution that more imperatively calls for attachment than any other it is the principle of free thought not free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate." Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. (born this date in 1841, died 1935).
