I'm it!

Dixie has tagged me for a research project.

The assignment:
1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day, not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)
6) Tag 5 other bloggers to complete (optional, I suppose;>)

3 events:
*1942 - World War II: The first unit of the Women's Army Corps begins training in Des Moines, Iowa.
*1969 - Apollo Program: Apollo 11 lands on the Moon.
*2005 - Canada becomes the fourth country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage, after the bill C-38 receives its Royal Assent.

2 birthdays:
*356 BC - Alexander the Great, Macedonian king and military leader
*1933 - Nelson Doubleday, American publisher and baseball executive

1 death:
*1704 - Peregrine White, first English child born in the Massachusetts Bay Colony

1 holiday or observance:
*Argentina - Día del Amigo (Friendship Day)

You're It!

fringes - Yay! Glad you participated. I found the whole thing kind of interesting. Now I've got some extra useless history knowledge;> I'm alright but seemingly busy, although I'm not completely sure what I'm busy doing...
