Introducing… The Beatles is the first Beatles album released in the United States. Originally scheduled for a July 1963 release, the LP
came out on 10 January 1964, on
Vee-Jay Records, ten days before Capitol‘s Meet the Beatles!. The latter album, however, entered the
U.S. album chart one week before the former. Consequently, when
Meet The Beatles! peaked at #1 for eleven consecutive weeks, Introducing…The Beatles stalled at #2 where it remained nine consecutive weeks. It was the subject of much legal wrangling,
but ultimately, Vee-Jay was permitted to sell the album until late
1964, by which time it had sold more than 1.3 million copies. On 24
July 2014 the album was certified gold and platinum by the RIAA.

PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY       LEE HARVY OSWALD

(FoxNews) – The National Archives and Records Administration on Wednesday released nearly 1,500 confidential documents related to
the assassination of
former President John F. Kennedy. 

The agency released the files via their website. Historians, political scholars and believers in a wide range of theories about Kennedy’s assassination immediately began poring over the documents.

Many of the documents relate to Kennedy’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. Many files also reference tensions between the United
States and Cuba
, evaluating statements from leader Fidel Castro
that allude to the possibility of Kennedy being in danger due to escalating aggression between the two nations.

NEW YORK (AP) — A very special birth certificate will be auctioned
off later this year — a rare copy of the U.S. Constitution.

Sotheby’s announced Friday — appropriately on Constitution Day —
that in November it will put up for auction one of just 11 surviving
copies of the Constitution from the official first printing produced
for the delegates to the Constitutional Convention and for the
Continental Congress. It’s the only copy that remains in private
hands and has an estimate of $15-$20 million.
