It was on this day in 1929 that Mickey Mouse said his first words.
The earliest event that Wiki says happened on this day is “1279 BC – Rameses II (The Great) (19th dynasty) becomes pharaoh of Ancient Egypt” and the most recent is “2010 – In international waters, armed Shayetet 13 commandos, searching for possible smuggled weapons, boarded ships trying to break the ongoing blockade of the Gaza Strip, resulting in 9 civilian deaths when the crew of the MV Mavi Marmara attacked them with baseball bats and metal rods.”
A few other things that also happened on this day are:
1678 – Lady Godiva takes a naked ride.
1990 – A show about nothing premieres on NBC.
Happy birthday to Brooke Shields, Darryl McDaniels, Tom Berenger, Lea Thompson, Joe Namath, Peter Yarrow, and Clint Eastwood.
