St Crispin's Day, October 25, 1415. The English King Henry V overwhelms a massive force of French knights at the Battle of Agincourt.

This is part of Henry's speech to his "band of brothers" just before the battle (from Shakespeare's Henry V):

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

In 1989 - the fall of the Berlin wall!
I was 10 and I remember watching it on TV. I still remember exact details of that night.
All over Eastern Europe at the time there was a feeling of excitement, fear, confusion, worry... Everyone knew that it was the end of an era, but no one knew what was coming next.

AULD LANG SYNE DAY

Guy%20Lombardo Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians played Auld Lang Syne as a New Year’s Eve song for the first time on this night in 1929. Auld Lang Syne had been the band’s theme song long before 1929. However, this night was the start of a New Year’s Eve tradition as Lombardo’s famed orchestra played at the Hotel Roosevelt Grill in New York City to usher in the new year.

Where did it Auld begin? Scottish poet Robert Burns said he heard an old man singing the words, and wrote them down; but Burns is considered the original author. The literal translation means “old long since”; less literal: “days gone by”.

April 25th..........ANZAC Day
Anzac tradition born on this day, April 1915, when forces of Australian New Zealand Army Corp(ANZAC) stormed the beaches at Gallipoli.
It's a solemn day here in Oz and Newealand and many turn out for the "dawn services" in each capital city, to pay homage.

 Today, in today's history, the gutless wonder, who is known as Bud Selig chose not to do the right thing and acknowledge that Gallaraga of the Tigers threw  a perfect game last night, but was thwarted by the flawed call of an umpire. What ever happened to just doing what's right?

For something that is actually important, the "crackdown" at Tianemmen Square began after 100,000 university students protested.  This happened in 1989.  Yep, it seems like yesterday.

To all my Military Brethren:
 

On this day in 1814, Francis Scott Key pens a poem which is later set to music and in 1931 becomes America's national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." The poem, originally titled "The Defence of Fort McHenry," was written after Key witnessed the Maryland fort being bombarded by the British during the War of 1812. Key was inspired by the sight of a lone U.S. flag still flying over Fort McHenry at daybreak, as reflected in the now-famous words of the "Star-Spangled Banner": "And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there."

Francis Scott Key was born on August 1, 1779, at Terra Rubra, his family's estate in Frederick County (now Carroll County), Maryland. He became a successful lawyer in Maryland and Washington, D.C., and was later appointed U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia.

On June 18, 1812, America declared war on Great Britain after a series of trade disagreements. In August 1814, British troops invaded Washington, D.C., and burned the White House, Capitol Building and Library of Congress. Their next target was Baltimore.

After one of Key's friends, Dr. William Beanes, was taken prisoner by the British, Key went to Baltimore, located the ship where Beanes was being held and negotiated his release. However, Key and Beanes weren't allowed to leave until after the British bombardment of Fort McHenry. Key watched the bombing campaign unfold from aboard a ship located about eight miles away. After a day, the British were unable to destroy the fort and gave up. Key was relieved to see the American flag still flying over Fort McHenry and quickly penned a few lines in tribute to what he had witnessed.

The poem was printed in newspapers and eventually set to the music of a popular English drinking tune called "To Anacreon in Heaven" by composer John Stafford Smith. People began referring to the song as "The Star-Spangled Banner" and in 1916 President Woodrow Wilson announced that it should be played at all official events. It was adopted as the national anthem on March 3, 1931.

Francis Scott Key died of pleurisy on January 11, 1843. Today, the flag that flew over Fort McHenry in 1914 is housed at the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address as he dedicated a national cemetery at the site of the Civil War battlefield in Pennsylvania

In 1959, Ford Motor Co. announced it was halting production of the unpopular Edsel.

In 1990, the pop duo Milli Vanilli were stripped of their Grammy Award because other singers had lent their voices to the "Girl You Know It's True" album.

In 1983 the first American woman in space was Sally Ride. I think you are thinking about the Space Shuttle Challenger that blew up in January of 1986. Her name was Christa McAuliffe.

July 4

In 1776, Thomas Jefferson bought his first thermometer and signed the Declaration of Independence.

He noted cloudy skies and 76°F at 2pm that day in Philadelphia.

In 1861, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Revenue Act of 1861, which included the first-ever federal personal income tax, a 3-percent levy on incomes above $800 (however, no income tax ended up actually being collected under this law).

In 1864, during the Civil War, Union Admiral David G. Farragut led his fleet to victory in the Battle of Mobile Bay, Ala.

In 1969, the U.S. space probe Mariner 7 flew by Mars, sending back photographs and scientific data.
