On this Day in History

I've added a new link in the Reference category, the last segment on the sidebar. "Anyday Today in History." You can search any day you wish. It's very detailed. They list birthdays, events and MIAs, holidays, religious observances and religious history.

Here's a few events for today:

1743 George Frideric Händel's oratorio "Messiah" premieres in London
1839 1st recorded use of "OK" [oll korrect] (Boston's Morning Post)
1891 1st jazz concert was held at Carnegie Hall
1896 Umberto Giordano's opera "Andrea Chénier" premieres in Milan
1903 Wright brothers obtain airplane patent
1912 Dixie Cup invented
1925 Tennessee becomes 1st state to outlaw teaching theory of evolution
1966 1st official meeting after 400 years of Catholic & Anglican Church
