April 4th: This Day in History

I’ve decided to begin periodically doing a segment titled, “This Day in History”. While it is by no means original, hopefully all you at home will find it extremely beneficial to recognize the importance each day has had across generations.

So today, April 4th:

  • 1865: Abraham Lincoln records a dream he has about being assassinated
  • 1928: Maya Angelou, poet and literary genius, is born
  • 1949: The NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Pact is signed in response to the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact
  • 1968: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is assassinated at the age of 39
