And, normaly, I don;t even acknowledge their existence. But (you knew there'd be a 'But') This one seems OK just because of the historic references…

Here's the meme:

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

And my findings:

Interesting Events- 

1773American Revolution: Boston Tea Party – Members of the Sons of Liberty disguised as Mohawks dump crates of tea into Boston harbor as a protest against the Tea Act.(This is what made it interesting for me!)

 1864American Civil War: Franklin-Nashville CampaignBattle of Nashville – Major General George H. Thomas's Union forces defeat Lieutenant General John Bell Hood's Confederate Army of Tennessee.

1944World War II: Battle of the BulgeGeneral Dwight D. Eisenhower's allied forces and Field Marshall Gerd von Rundstedt's German army engage in the Belgian Ardennes.


1770Ludwig van Beethoven, German composer (d. 1827)

1949Billy Gibbons, American guitarist (ZZ Top)

Eclectic tastes, no?


1980Colonel Harland Sanders, American fast food entrepreneur (b. 1890)

Having fell to the meme, I refuse to "tag" anyone else.

If you want to play, you are responsible for your choice. 


  1. Didn’t you go to school with Ludwig?!?
