    328 A.D.

    Discovery of the True Cross-According to medieval legend St.Helena the mother of Constantine the Great unearthes it on the mount of Calvary and tests it out by crucifying someone on it who gets up after three days.(After all,it might have been someone else's cross!) . Byzantine Emperors carried it around and into battle until it was thought to be too precious to lose,so it was broken up and the wood distributed to the kings of Christendom. By Luther's time it was said so much of the holy wood was around that if you got it all together you could build a nice house.

    1536-

    Huron chief Donnaconna noticed that the French explorer Jacques Cartier got excited whenever he mentioned gold or riches. So Donnaconna made up fantastic stories about a powerful kingdom upriver called Sanguenay (about where present day Ottawa is). He said the people were fabulously wealthy and had no anus's so they could only drink fluids. Cartier not only swallowed the gag this but he was so impressed he had poor Donnaconna kidnapped and brought ot France to tell his stories to the king. The old Huron never saw home again.

    1702-

    Lord Cornbury becomes Lord Governor of New York. This English aristocrat surprised the solid Dutch calvinists of former Nieu Amsterdaam by his eccentric behavior. His favorite pastime was dressing up in a ladies ballgown and at night jumping out at people and pulling their ears. When in drag he bore an uncomfortable ressemblance to England+s Queen Anne. He later explained he dressed this way so the colonists could see what their queen in England looked like, but nobody believed him. There is today a painting of the Governor in drag at the New York Historical Society . One of his other peccadillos was compelling the city council of New York to come up one by one and feel his wife's ears.

    1791-

    Polish Constitution of 3rd of May.This document was inspired by the Declaration of Independance and the Declaration of the Rights of Man, but being situated in the middle of autocratic monarchies like Russia and Prussia they went nuts and crushed the Poles.

    1848-

    Working people of Saxony revolt against their king. Leo Bakunin the father of anarchism and the composer Richard Wagner were two of the leaders. The Prussian army was sent to help put down the workers and Wagner fled into Switzerland,but not before he had the pleasure of burning down the Leipzig Opera House.

    1863-

    2nd Day Battle of Chancellorsville- Stonewall Jackson,while looking over his troops dispositions in the night is confused for a yankee and shot by his own troops. Jackson was a presbyterian minister who kept no slaves and taught his officer+s slaves to read, but was the South+s finest field commander. Eccentric but ruthless, he once after a battle sat among a huge pile of yankee corpses eating a peach: ?The Lord had been Good to us this day..

    1888-

    Poem "Casey at the Bat" published.

    1917-

    The Great French Military Mutineys. After three years of being massacred by the millions in suicidal standing charges against German machine guns and appalling conditions in the trenches, the average French "poilus"(soldier nickname like G.I.) had had enough. Whole regiments refused to go to the front. The mutiney was so bad that to this day official records are vague as to just how many men were involved. A safe estimate is at least 100,000 men. At the same time in Russia whole armies were getting up and walking home and in Germany major cities like Berlin and Munich were rocked by bread riots and strikes.

    1941-

    Battle of Amba Alagi. Britain vs. Italy for Ethiopia.

    1948-

    THE PARAMOUNT DECISION- The Supreme Court rules the Motion Picture Studios constitute a monopoly and orders them to sell their theater chains. One casualty of this rule was the short cartoon. Because theater managers no longer were forced to run a cartoon,newsreel and short with a feature (block-booking), they opted for the time to run more showings of the main feature.

    1968-

    Paris'68 revolt. Police are sent into the Sorbonne University in Paris to break up student demonstrations.(The grounds of the university had never been violated by police, even during the Nazi occupation). This act enrages the student leaders who are joined by labor unions and there is fighting in the streets of Paris for the next three weeks that eventually brought down the DeGaulle gov't. All night political meetings center in the Odeon theatre as the likes of Jean Paul Satre and John Luc Godard make intellectual manifestations of aesthetic freedom. "The More I make Love, the More I make Revolution!" One of the student leaders was Daniel Cohn-Bedit "Danny the Red". Conservative media tried to draw attention to Cohn-Bendit+s Jewish foreign backround . This caused an even larger angrier march of everyday Parisians and Unionists chanting: "We are all Jews!"

    1971-

    National Public Radio's news program "All Things Considered" goes on the air, the first natioanl news program with women news anchors.
