Edward VIII abdicates throne December 11, 1936. Edward VIII was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Empire, and Emperor of India, from January 20, 1936 until his abdication on December 11 of that year. Only months into his reign, he caused a constitutional crisis by proposing to Wallis Simpson, an American who had divorced her first husband and was seeking a divorce from her second. When it became apparent he could not marry Wallis and remain on the throne, Edward abdicated. He was succeeded by his younger brother, George VI. With a reign of 326 days, Edward is one of the shortest-reigning monarchs in British history.

French Revolution-Began in 1789 (was a period of far-reaching social and political upheaval in France and its colonies beginning in 1789. The Revolution overthrew the monarchy, established a republic, catalyzed violent periods of political turmoil, and finally culminated in a dictatorship under Napoleon who brought many of its principles to areas he conquered in Western Europe and beyond. Inspired by liberal and radical ideas, the Revolution profoundly altered the course of modern history, triggering the global decline of absolute monarchies while replacing them with republics and liberal democracies. Through the Revolutionary Wars, it unleashed a wave of global conflicts that extended from the Caribbean to the Middle East. Historians widely regard the Revolution as one of the most important events in human history)

Hank Aaron Hits 715th Home Run-Apr 8, 1974 (Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves hits his 715th career home run, breaking Babe Ruth's legendary record of 714 homers)

Believe it or not fans actually ran onto the field while Aaron ran around the bases after hitting his home run...………………

Many baseball fans still consider Hank Aaron's record as the standard, even thought it was broken by Barry Bonds...…………...

Invasion of Iraq – 2003. The 2003 invasion of Iraq was the first stage of the Iraq War. The invasion phase began on 19 March 2003 and lasted just over one month, including 21 days of major combat operations, in which a combined force of troops from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland invaded Iraq. This early stage of the war formally ended on 1 May 2003 when U.S. President George W. Bush declared the "End of major combat operations", after which the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) was established as the first of several successive transitional governments leading up to the first Iraqi parliamentary election in January 2005. U.S. military forces later remained in Iraq until the withdrawal in 2011.

Jesse James Shot-Apr 3, 1882 (When the news broke on April 3, 1882 that Jesse James had been shot from behind by fellow gang member Robert Ford (who hoped to collect a reward on Jame's head and a pomised amnesty for his previous crimes), many people didn’t believe it. There had been false reports that Jesse had been killed before and it took some time for the public to accept that America’s greatest outlaw was really dead)

Remember there was a song about that? Something like ... "That dirty little coward who shot Mr. Howard laid poor Jesse in his grave ..."

Nadia Comaneci Awarded First Perfect 10-1976 (Comaneci became the first gymnast in Olympic history to be awarded the perfect score of 10.0 for her performance on the uneven bars. She went on to record the perfect 10.0 six more times and became the youngest all-around Olympic gold medalist ever. The manufacturer of the Olympic scoreboard, Omega SA, created the board with the idea that a perfect 10 was not unattainable. Therefore, the board was unable to display a 10. Therefore, when Nadia was given a perfect 10 her score came up at a “1.00”)
