On This Day

I thought about writing something about the attacks on the WTC but couldn't decide what I wanted to say (it threatened to turn into a rant about Bush and the War on Terror) so instead I've decided to write about other things that have happened on September 11th.

1814 - America victorious on Lake Champlain

1885 - D.H.Lawrence born

1895 - FA Cup stolen from a football fitters in Birmingham

1922 - British Mandate in Palestine began

1971 - Nikita Krushchev died

1973 - President Allende of Chile died in revolt by army leaders

1976 - Abba's Dancing Queen reached number 1 in UK charts

1980 - Marlborough Diamond stolen
