NOVEMBER 14 - THIS DAY IN HISTORY


By Vernalee

Here are some events named significant that happened on November 14th.

  • 1770 – The source of the Nile Is discovered.

  • 1851 – Moby-Dick is published.

  • 1862 – President Abraham Lincoln authorized the capture of Richmond, Virginia.

  • 1941 – World War II: In Slonim, German, 9,000 Jews are murdered in a single day.

  • 1960 – Ruby Bridges becomes the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school in Louisiana.

  • 1965 – Vietnam War: The first major engagement occurs between regular American and North Vietnamese forces.

  • 2017 – A gunman tragically kills four people and injures 12 others during a shooting spree in California. He had earlier murdered his wife in their home.

That's history; sad history in many cases. That’s what happened in the past. The question is - What are we going to do today? Particularly, what are we going to do to make our lives better ... to make the world better!
