I Hhhhaaaaate memes.

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.

Births-

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

1949Billy Gibbons, American guitarist (ZZ Top)

Eclectic tastes, no?

Death-

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.
