A threefer. 🙂
Here’s a closer view of a couple of them.
On this day in 1895 George B. Selden received the first U.S. patent for an automobile. He sold the rights for $200,000 four years later.
In 1946 John F. Kennedy was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives at the age of 29.
In 1963 archaeologists found the remains of a Viking settlement at L’Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland.
And in 1990 Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of the Kach movement, was shot to death after a speech at a New York Hotel. His assassin, Egyptian El Sayyid, was later convicted of the murder and was sentenced to life in prison for his part in the World Trade Center bombing.
