I've been tagged by Tiff to do this highly intriguing birthday Wikipedia thingie.
Here's what I had to do:
1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your Birthday Month and day only.
2. List 3 Events that occurred that day.
3. List 2 important Birth days.
4. List 1 Death.
5. List a Holiday or Observance. (if any)
6. Tag 5 other bloggers.
And here goes nuthin':
1804 - At Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, Napoleon Bonaparte crowns himself Emperor of the French, the first French Emperor in a thousand years.
1859 - Militant abolitionist leader John Brown is hanged for his October 16th raid on Harper's Ferry.
1976 - Fidel Castro becomes President of Cuba replacing Osvaldo Dorticós Torrado.
1981 - Britney Spears, American singer
1960 - Rick Savage, British bassist (Def Leppard)
1547 - Hernán Cortés, Spanish explorer and conqueror (b. 1485)
Holiday or Observance:
International Day for the Abolition of Slavery - United Nations
I don't really know five people on here so I just tag the one person I know who hasn't been.
