Picked up from Cartazon:

Goto Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

Let’s see…

  • Facts:
    • 800 – Coronation of Charlemagne as Holy Roman Emperor, in Rome.
    • 1776 – George Washington and his army cross the Delaware River to attack Britain’s Hessian mercenaries in Trenton, New Jersey.
    • 1991 – Mikhail Gorbachev resigns as president of the Soviet Union (the union itself is dissolved the next day).
  • Born::
    • 1642 (O.S.) – Sir Isaac Newton, English physicist and mathematician (d. 1727)
    • 1899 – Humphrey Bogart, American actor (d. 1957)
  • Died::
    • 1977 – Charlie Chaplin, English actor (b. 1889)

I wasn’t aware that Charlie Chaplin was English, you think the lack of accent helped? 😉
