Birthday Meme

Ok, I saw this on CJ's blog it is her Birthday today and since my birthday is around the corner I thought I would do this now instead of later.

Birthday meme

The instructions:
1) Go to Wikipedia.
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)

Three events that happened on my Birthday
1.) 1803 - Louisiana Purchase completed at a ceremony in New Orleans.
2.) 1981 - The first ever on-stage performance of the award-winning Broadway musical Dreamgirls at Imperial Theatre on Broadway.
3.) 2005 - US District Court Judge John E. Jones III ruled against mandating teaching "intelligent design" in his ruling of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District.

2.) 1868 - Harvey Firestone, American automobile pioneer (birthday)
