What do Eskimos, George Washington, King William IV (England), the Ku Klux Klan, the Molly Maguires, Mormons, General Pickett, John D. Rockerfeller, Jim Thorpe, Amilia Earhart, Billy Burke, Adolph Hitler, “Bugs” Moran, Billie Jean King, and Roger Federer have in common? Coverage about each of them appeared in newspapers dated July 7th. The years may have varied, but one of the many reasons why were are familiar with their names is due to “This Day in History”. I wonder who might show up on a different day? Why not give it a try – see “Month and Day (Any Year)”?

This Day in “News” History (Part II) – January 27th…

Earlier this week we featured the post: “This Day in ‘News’ History… January 23…”, along with brief directions as to how you could explore any date. It also featured a link the available newspapers listed on the website which were dated on the 23rd of January (throughout time). We had so much fun pulling these together, we thought we would do this same for today (the 27th of January), but this time, in addition to including a link to the available issues, one of our staff randomly selected a little more than a dozen in a short video. Enjoy.
