I've been tagged! Patty from Morning Ramble tagged me for this Wikipedia MeMe. What fun! This is the way it works:
1. Go to Wikipedia and type in the month and day you were born. (For me--August 20th).
2. List three events that occurred that day:
1866 - President Andrew Johnson formally declared the U.S. Civil War over.
1938 - Lou Gehrig hits his 23rd career grand slam - a record that still stands.
1991 - Collapse of the Soviet Union: More than 100,000 people rally outside the Soviet Union's parliament building protesting the coup aiming to depose President Mikhail Gorbachev.
3. List two important birthdays:
1881 - Edgar Guest, English poet (d. 1959)
1918 - Jacqueline Susann, American novelist (d. 1974)
4. List one death:
1643 - Anne Hutchinson, English Puritan preacher (b. 1591)
5. Tag five friends to do the same: (If they want to!)
