Today in history

Today's historical events:

Here you will find an overview of stuff that happened.. in history. Every first week of January we add significant events that occurred in the previous year. Our database of historical events contains more than ten thousand entries! Yep, a lot happened in the last thousands years ;-) And if you want to know the future, look at the past. Shirley sang it (it's all a bit of history repeating) and it's true, history does repeats itself. So sit back, relax and enjoy these memories of things in the past..
