that occurred on your birthday.


It was really hard to choose. My Birthday is October 27th.

3 interesting facts:

1838 - Missouri governor Lilburn Boggs issues the Extermination Order, which orders all Mormons to leave the
state.
1954 - Benjamin O. Davis Jr. becomes the first African-American general in the United States Air Force.
2004 - End of the Curse of the Bambino: At approximately 11:41 P.M. EST Major League Baseball's Boston Red
Sox won Game 4 of the World Series 3-0, sweeping the series in 4 games over the St. Louis Cardinals on
a night featuring a full lunar eclipse, becoming champions for the first time since 1918.

(and a bonus one: 1997 - Stock markets around the world crash because of fears of a global economic meltdown. The Dow Jones Industrial Average plummets 554.26 points to 7,161.15. For the first time, the New York Stock Exchange activated their "circuit breakers" twice during the day eventually making the controversial move of closing the Exchange early (see October 27, 1997 mini-crash).)

2 births:

1858 - Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize
(d. 1919)
1939 - John Cleese, British actor and writer

(1 bonus: 1958 - Simon Le Bon, English singer (Duran Duran), one claim that was cool when I was in Junior High)

1 Death

1430 - Vytautas the Great, Grand Prince of Lithuania (this one is cool since my last name is Lithuanian)
