Today in History (According to Sarah Palin), June 4

Sarah Palin
1989 - The Emperor of China fired into a crowd of demonstrators in Red Square, (they changed the name from Yemin Square because so many demonstrators died there). The event led to his being the last Emperor of China.

1942 - The Battle of Midway, which  marked the middle of our defeat of the Germans in World War II.

1919 - Senate passed the Womens Suffering Bill.

1917 - The first Pulitzer Prize was awarded by Lily Pulitzer.

1912 - Massachusetts passed the first minimum wage law and there's been no need to increase it since then.

1812- The Louisiana Territory was officially renamed the "Missouri Territory" because no one wanted to credit the Jewish people for Sacajewea's help. Mark Twain was one of the main proponents of the change and later wrote books about it.

1789 - U.S. Constitution went into effect (but they had everything but the gun rights part wrong).


1738 - King George III, who helped us form the 13 original colonies, mostly by paying taxes and sending us tea and guns.
