On my birthday ...
Ovid died. (Did I mention that after reading his poetry, I have a giant crush on that man?)
The Roman Lower Rhine army proclaimed Vitellius emperor.
Spain recaptured Granada from the Moors.
Alice Sanger became the first female White House staffer.
Mahatma Gandhi began his march for peace in East Bengal.
JFK announced his candidacy for president.
The Howard Stern show premiered.
And ... my personal favorite: the first Jewish child was born in Spain since the 1492 expulsion. This was in 1966.
What happened on yours?
