Add Your Piece of History… 28th June

28 Jun
  • On this day in 2011.  Our handsome little son was born.  He turns 2 today!  Our first personal piece of history added.
  • On this day in 1997.  Mike Tyson was disqualified after biting off part of Evander Holyfield’s ear during their heavyweight title fight, earning a 16-month suspension.
  • On this day in 1491.  Henry VIII, King of England, is born.  He was born at the Palace of Placentia, Greenwich, England.
  • On this day in 1914.   Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife Sophie are shot dead by a Bosnian Serb nationalist during
    an  official visit to the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo. The deaths set off a chain of events that led to the outbreak of World War I by
    early August. On 28 June 1919, five years to the day after Franz Ferdinand’s death, Germany and the Allied Powers signed the Treaty of
    Versailles, officially marking the end of World War I.

Please feel free to add your piece of history (something personal or general history).
