This Day in History

Today in History

One of my favorite books as a child was an annual that highlighted Today in History. I remember looking up my birthday, my sisters' birthday, my parents' birthday, my best friend's birthday, my teacher's birthday, my dog's birthday. (Well... ya get the picture!). Now, this type of information is just at your fingertips! Check out some of these sites:

CNN's This Day in History
BBC's On this Day
and my favorite is On This Day from the New York Times.

These sites have all kinds of features like signing up for email alerts or RSS feeds or even looking at digitized documents related to the highlighted historical event. History is bound to repeat itself! Keep learning about the past to stay informed for the future.
