Not to try to compete with the fabulous misterc's amazing trivia chops (a futile endeavor if ever there was one), but I thought this would be a fun semi-regular diversion:

Today in History: June 4
  • 1919 – Women's rights: The U.S. Congress approves the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which guarantees suffrage to women, and sends it to the U.S. states for ratification.
  • 1957 – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous Power of Nonviolence speech at the University of California, Berkeley.
  • 1974 – During Ten Cent Beer Night, inebriated Cleveland Indians fans start a riot, causing the game to be forfeited to the Texas Rangers.
  • 1989 – The Tiananmen Square protests are violently ended in Beijing by the People's Liberation Army.
  • 2010 – Falcon 9 Flight 1 was the maiden flight of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, which launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Space Launch Complex 40.

And I thought I had a busy day! How was yours?
