Well, off the top of my head -

The Battle of Fredericksburg happened on Dec. 13, 1862, 101 years to the day before I was born.
Pearl Harbor was bombed on Dec. 7.
Christmas and Hanukah fall in my birth month.
And the collision of the USS Lockwood with the RPS Santo Nino happened on Dec. 10, 1985.
I know about that one because I was on board the Lockwood at the time!

Hitler launched Operation Attila in 1940, cementing his control over most of France.

Prohibition was repealed in 1933.

John Lennon got murdered by a man who hoped to piggyback on his fame, therefore a man whose name we should never write.

Robert Mugabe became President of Zaire in 1987.

The Soviets landed a craft on Venus in 1970.

The Warren Commission began its hearings in 1963.

Nelson Mandela died in 2013.

In 2009 a gay marriage bill was voted down in New York.

That was the scariest experience of my four year Navy career.  Stupid freighter nearly cut us in half, yet amazingly we did not lose a single crewman!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
