Well, not much going on lately, so I decided to see if I could find some interesting things that happened on this date. Here's some of what I found.
*1871 - Great Chicago Fire Starts - The story is that Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked over a lantern starting the fire that would destroy most of Chicago. But, later on a Chicago Tribune reporter admitted that he created that story to sell newspapers. The fire killed between 200 and 300 people.
*1944 - The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriett debuts on the radio
*1998 - U.S. House of Representatives initiates Clinton impeachment inquiry.
*1918 - WWI Heroics: U.S. soldier Alvin York kills 25 and captures 132 at Argonne.
Happy Birthday to Rona Barrett, R. L. Stine, Chevy Chase, Matt Damon and Jesse Jackson.
And that's today in history......
