You might know what happened on December 7, 1941, or November 22, 1963, but every day marks an event in history. From Paul Revere's ride to the Challenger disaster, from the premiere of the Marx Brothers' Duck Soup to Dr. Seuss's birthday, this entertaining chronicle singles out an event for each day of the year (including that renegade, February 29th), describing its significance in a thoughtful page-long text. Of course you'll find larger-than-life anniversaries connected to World War II, the presidency, and the civil rights movement, but here too are the founding of Arlington Cemetery, Charles Dickens touring America, and a young Elvis Presley getting a guitar for his birthday.
