What happened today in the past?


The History channel website has a great page that will tell you what significant events happened on this date in the past. It automatically shows you today's date, but it also allows you to enter any date you want.
For a big history fan like me, I was a history minor in college, this site is great! Did you know that on this date in 1911, the first around the world telegram was sent? Or that on this date in 1975 the Viking 1 probe to mars was launched?

  • Wikipedia also has this sort of info arranged by date. It shows today's date on the front page but again, you can browse to any date you'd like. It doesn't mention the around-the-world telegram but does mention Viking 1.
