My dear friend Ben at Babulife has tagged me. Here is the criteria for this particular tag:
When tagged, you have to take your birthday date and find out some things about it. You have to find, events, other people who were born on the same day, deaths and a holiday.
So here is what the wonders of Wikipedia by typing in my birthday of June 4, almost following said rules:
- 470 BC – Socrates, Greek philosopher (d. 399 BC)
- 780 BC – The first historic solar eclipse is recorded in China.
- 1615 – Forces under the shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu take Osaka Castle in Japan.
- 1876 – An express train called the Transcontinental Express arrives in San Francisco, California, via the First Transcontinental Railroad only 83 hours and 39 minutes after having left New York City.
- 1944 – World War II: A hunter-killer group of the United States Navy capture the German submarineU-505, marking the first time a U.S. Navy vessel captured an enemy vessel at sea since the 19th century.
