● 1504 - Michelangelo's David is unveiled in Florence.


I have a replica of DAVID in my rock garden. He's about 4 feet tall, and there he stands in all of his naked glory, smackdab in the middle of the circular driveway!


Quote:
1664 - The Dutch colony of New Amsterdam was surrendered to the British who renamed it New York in 1669.
I wonder if this will even be noted with all of the 9/11 wallowing that's going on up there.

Quote:
1863 - American Civil War: Second Battle of Sabine Pass - On the Texas-Louisiana border at the mouth of the Sabine River, a small Confederate force thwarts a Union invasion of Texas.
I love Civil War history.

Quote:
1935 - US Senator from Louisiana, Huey Long, nicknamed "Kingfish", is fatally shot in the Louisiana capitol building.


That's a fascinating story...one that I don't think has ever been truthfully told.

You're doing a great job in here, Proud Liberal...thanks so much!
