On This Day in History....

Maryland was founded in 1634 by settlers sent by Lord Baltimore.

In 1775 Patrick Henry gives his famous speech...."Give me liberty or Give me death!"

Tennessee bans the teaching of evolution.

Martin Luther King leads 25,000 in the Alabama Freedom March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to protest the denial of voting rights to Blacks.

Retired dentist, Barney Clark, dies 112 days after being the first person to receive the first artificial heart.

Abraham Lincoln was born....and so was Sarah Jessica Parker!

And............Sixty years ago a little boy was born in a tiny little hospital in Philipsburg, Montana.

And he grew up to be my #1 main man, eternal companion, and all around good guy!

Happy Birthday TL!

You forgot one MAJOR thing that also happened on March 25th. Frodo Baggins cast the One Ring into the fires of Mt. Doom!!! With the grisly help of Gollum of course.
