Ellis Island, the gateway to America, shut its doors after processing more
than 12 million immigrants since opening in 1892. Today, an estimated 40
percent of all Americans can trace their roots through Ellis Island, located
in
New York Harbor off the New Jersey coast and named for merchant
Samuel Ellis (1733-1794), who owned the land in the 1770s. Ellis’s heirs
sold the island to the State of New York in 1808. Today,
Ellis Island is one
of the most popular destinations in the National Park system, with over 3
million visitors each year.

The great Northeast blackout occurred on this day in 1965,  as several
states and parts of Canada were hit by a series of power failures lasting
up to 13 1/2 hours. More than 30 million people were into darkness in
one of the biggest electrical power failures in history. The blackout
was caused by a misconfigured power line at a hydroelectric power
station at Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
