On his nationwide CBS-TV program, "See It Now," Edward R.
Murrow, on this day in 1954, used the Wisconsin Republican’s
own filmed and tape-recorded voice to portray him as a man
employing the half-truth as a "staple" and "repeatedly stepping
over the line between investigating and persecuting.

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.

a gold nugget at Sutter’s Mill in northern
California. The discovery led to the gold
rush of ’49’.

On this day in 1968, North Korea seized the U.S. Navy ship Pueblo, charging it had intruded into the nation’s territorial waters on a
spying mission. The crew was released 11 months later.

The Pueblo’s mission began in early January, 1968, when the crew
set off from the U.S. Navy base on Yokosuka, Japan with orders to conduct surveillance on Soviet Navy and North Korean signal and electronic intelligence activity.

Pueblo, is still being held by North Korea today, officially remains
a
commissioned vessel of the United States Navy. Since early 2013,
the ship has been
moored along the Potong River in Pyongyang, and       
used there as a museum ship at the Pyongyang Victorious War
Museum
.
