January 27th

International Holocaust Remembrance Day

On this day in...

1982: Philadelphia trades Larry Bowa and Ryne Sandberg to Cubs for Ivan DeJesus

1973: U.S. and Vietnam sign cease-fire, ending longest U.S. war and military draft

1967: Apollo 1 fire kills astronauts Grissom, White, and Chaffee

1888: National Geographic Society organizes in Washington D.C.

In Wisconsin history, apparently the only thing of note is the death of a Dr. Joseph Schafer, a superintendent of the State Historical Society.

Famous people born include:

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - 1756
Lewis Carroll - 1832
John Roberts, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court - 1955

I promise this will be the only post of this nature this year, mainly due to it's lameness.

Let it be known that I wish to one day have a page in wikipedia, or at least be in the Wisconsin Historical Society's "things that happened today" page.

Perhaps I could convince National Geographic to hire me on the basis of us sharing birthdays.
