History Meme

I am unofficially “tagged” for this meme after reading A Fraternity of Dreamers’ post about it.

I.   Go to Wikipedia and type in your month and day of birth (no year):

August 19

II.  List three events:

1934 – First All -American Soap Box Derby is held in Dayton, Ohio
1944 WWII Liberation of Paris – Paris rises against German occupation with the help of Allied Troups
1991Collapse of the Soviet Union – Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev is placed under arrest while on holiday in the town of Foros, Crimea

III. List two births:

1871Orville Wright, American Aviation pioneer (d. 1955)
1930Frank McCourt, Irish-American author

IV. List one death:

1980Otto Frank, father of Anne Frank (b. 1889)

V.   List one holiday:

Russian Orthodox Church celebrates the Savior’s Transfiguration, popularly known as the “Apples Feast” which is the first day of the year when eating apples is allowed (!)

I’m supposed to “tag” five other people – but instead consider yourself “tagged” if you read this and want to play! Just leave me a comment with a link to your blog so I can come read your answers.

    It’s interesting to see what events people choose out of everything that happens on their birthday in years past! I just posted the meme to my blog.
