On This Day!

My friend Ingrid tagged me for this meme. Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (only the month and day). Choose and write down 3 events, 2 births and 1 holiday. Then tag 5 friends.


Three events that happened on September 14th:

1886 - Typewriter ribbon patented.
1990 - Ken Griffey and his son Ken Jr. become the first father-son duo to hit back-to-back home runs.
2001 - Historic National Prayer Service held at Washington National Cathedral for victims of the September 11 attacks. A similar service is held in Canada on Parliament Hill, the largest vigil ever held in the nation's capital.

Two Birthdays on September 14th:
1879 - Margaret Sanger, American birth control advocate (d. 1966)
1964 - Faith Ford, American actress

One Holiday:
Formerly, in the Roman Catholic and Anglican churches, the Wednesday, Friday and Saturday following 14 September were observed as one of the four sets of Ember days. In the Irish calendar they were known as Quarter tense.

I am chosing NOT to tag anyone, but if you are reading this and feel like participating GO FOR IT, and leave me a comment letting me know! :)

Love your posts Corey!
I did it for my b-day of January 9th.

3 Events
1861 - American Civil War: The "Star of the West" incident occurs near Charleston, South Carolina. It is considered by some historians to be the "First Shots of the American Civil War.")

1972 - RMS Queen Elizabeth is destroyed by fire in Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong.

2006 - The Phantom of the Opera surpasses the record set by Cats for the title of longest running show on Broadway.

2 Births
1913 - Richard Nixon, 37th President of the United States (d. 1994)

1951 - Crystal Gayle, American singer

1 Holiday
Martyrs' Day is a Panamanian holiday which commemorates the January 9, 1964 riots over sovereignty of the Panama Canal Zone. The riot started after a Panamanian flag was torn during conflict between Panamanian students and Canal Zone Police officers, over the right of the Panamanian flag to be flown alongside the U.S. flag.

U.S. Army units became involved in suppressing the violence after Canal Zone police were overwhelmed, and after three days of fighting, about 21 Panamanians and four U.S. soldiers were killed. The incident is considered to be a significant factor in the U.S. decision to transfer control of the Canal Zone to Panama through the 1977 Torrijos-Carter Treaties.
