The Charge of the Light Brigade took place during the Crimean War
on this day in 1854. The British were winning the Battle of Balaclava when Lord James Cardigan received an order to attack the Russians
and took his troops into a valley where they suffered 40 percent casualties. It was later revealed that the order was the result of
confusion and was not given intentionally.

It was on this day in 1999.

Stewart, 42, was one of the world’s most recognizable golfers because of his trademark knickerbockers. The plane carrying Stewart and five others crashed 
near Aberdeen, South Dakota, after traveling 1,500 miles, most of it while the
pilot, co-pilot and passengers were apparently unconscious or dead when the
plane lost cabin pressure during its flight and ran out of fuel and crashed. The
sounds of a low-pressure alarm could be heard on the recovered cockpit voice recorder.
