Today in legal and military [and occasional oddities] history

1883 The first baseball game under electric lights is played in Fort Wayne, Indiana

1924 The United States grants full citizenship to American Indians

1942 The American aircraft carriers Enterprise, Hornet, and Yorktown move into their battle positions for the Battle of Midway

1953 Elizabeth II is crowned queen of England at Westminster Abbey


  1. That 1924 date is incredible. The folks who were actually born in this country weren't citizens? We have a lot for which to hang our head in shame as a country.
