Today In History

With all the work I've been doing lately, I haven't had a whole lot of knitting time, so I figured that I'd fill my blog today with interesting things that happened today in history.

Copernicus makes his 1st observations of Saturn

1721 Smallpox vaccination 1st administrated
1865 John Wilkes Booth assassin, is shot dead near Bowling Green VA at 27
1906 1st motion pictures shown in Hawaii
1977 New York's famed disco Studio 54 opens
1982 Rod Stewart is mugged, the gunman steals his $50,000 Porsche
1990 Danny Wood of New Kids, steps on a stuffed animal & twists his ankle
1992 "Growing Pains", final episode on ABC TV
1994 1st multi-racial election in South Africa begins [3 days] Dr Nomaza Paintin in New Zealand is 1st black South African to vote

I wish I could take credit for knowing all of this...but I don't. I found it here.
