There was a time that I cringed when my birthday was coming. What happened on my birthday? April 19th has some really interesting events happen on it… the U.S.S. Iowa explosion, Wako, Oklahoma city… ugh. Going back in history, it doesn't get much better. It was the day that the American Revolution started!
What happened on your Birthday?
Wikipedia has an entry for every day of the year that you can read. I wanted to add that it was the day that I was born, but I'm not sure that's really history. 😉
