POLL: Your Wedding Date In History

fromcoldtofire is totally responsible for this poll! I was reading about her Grace Kelly connection and it got me thinking about my wedding date and what special things have happened on that day throughout history. I checked the date on Wikipedia and here's what it says (these are just the major ones, to me at least, lol)!


Wedding Date: September 18


Big Events:
1837
– Tiffany and Co. (first named Tiffany & Young) is founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and Teddy Young in New York City. The store is called a "stationery and fancy goods emporium".
1851 – First publication of The New-York Daily Times, which later becomes The New York Times
1919 – The Netherlands gives women the right to vote.
1932 – Actress Peg Entwistle commits suicide by jumping from the letter "H" in the Hollywood sign.
1977 – Voyager I takes first photograph of the Earth and the Moon together.
2001 – First mailing of anthrax letters from Trenton, New Jersey in the 2001 anthrax attacks.
2009 – The 72 year run of the soap opera The Guiding Light ends as its final episode is broadcast.
 
Births:
1895 - Tomoji Tanabe, the oldest man in the world from January 2007 until his death (d. 2009)
1961 – James Gandolfini, American actor
1964 – Holly Robinson Peete, American actress

Deaths:

Pretty cool! DH will be really surprised to see Lance Armstrong was born on our wedding date, he loves him!
