Meme Time

Posted on: June 28, 2007

I haven’t done one of these in a long time so what the heck.

The rules: Go to Wikipedia and type in your birth month and date (mine is May 2), then post 3 events, 2 births and a holiday. Then tag 5 others. I tag Robyn, Guinifer, Jae, Leslie, and Julia. I actually thought this was an interesting one to do.

Events:

1863 – American Civil War: Stonewall Jackson is wounded by friendly fire while returning to camp after reconnoitering for the Battle of Chancellorsville. He succumbs to pneumonia 8 days later.

1885 – Good Housekeeping magazine goes on sale for the first time. (Think there were any knitting articles in it? )

1946 – The “Battle of Alcatraz” – Alcatraz Federal prison, San Francisco is taken over by six inmates following a failed escape attempt.

Births:

1975 – David Beckham, English footballer

1955 – Donatella Versace, Italian fashion designer

1936 – Engelbert Humperdinck, British-born singer (for some reason I always thought he was Polish, but I don’t recall why)

Holiday:

I thought this was an appropriate one for me to pick since I’m part Polish.

Poland – Flag Day, an official holiday to honor the Flag of Poland
