On this day in 1770, a deadly riot called "The Boston Massacre" took place on King Street in Boston. It began as a street brawl between
American colonists and a lone British soldier, but quickly escalated
to a chaotic, bloody slaughter killing five people. Two British troops 
were later convicted of manslaughter. The conflict energized anti-
Britain sentiment and paved the way for the American Revolution.

On this day in 1963, country music performers Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas and Hawkshaw Hawkins died in the crash of their plane, a
Piper Comanche, near Camden, Tennessee, along with pilot Randy Hughes (Cline’s manager). The investigation determined that Hughes,
a non-instrument-rated pilot, attempted visual flight in adverse
weather conditions, resulting in disorientation and subsequent loss
of control.

NBC’s "Today" show premiered on this day in 1952.


NBC built a "Today" show studio inside the RCA Exhibition
Hall on West 49th Street and dubbed it "the nerve center of
the planet."

Dave Garroway, the host, knew, on the very first day, that he
was making history. In the first few minutes, he stood up to
take viewers on a tour of this strange-looking newsroom.

On this day in 1954, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were married
in a civil ceremony at San Francisco City Hall, where they were
mobbed by reporters and fans. Monroe had apparently mentioned
the wedding plans to someone at her film studio and they leaked it
to the press. The couple spent their wedding night at the Clifton
Motel in Paso Robles, California and later honeymooned in Japan
and Korea. The marriage only lasted nine short months.

Louis Braille (January 4, 1809 – January 6, 1852)  

Braille was a French educator and inventor of a system of reading and
writing for use by the
blind or visually impaired. His system remains
virtually unchanged to this day, and is known worldwide simply as
braille.

Braille’s story starts when he was three years old. He was playing in
his father’s shop in Coupvray, France, and somehow managed to
injure his eye. Though he was offered the best medical attention
available at the time, it wasn’t enough—an infection soon developed
and spread to his other eye, rendering him blind in both eyes. While
a tragedy for him, had this accident not happened, we wouldn’t have
braille today.
