This Day in History

1885
The Statue of Liberty arrived in New York City aboard the French ship Isere.

1928
Amelia Earhart embarked on the first trans-Atlantic flight by a woman.

1944
The Republic of Iceland was established.

1963
U.S. Supreme Court ruled that no locality may require recitation of Lord's Prayer or Bible verses in public schools.

1972
Burglary of Democratic Party headquarters in Washington, DC, started the Watergate political scandal.

1994
O. J. Simpson's slow-speed chase by the police, watched by millions on TV, ended in his arrest.

2002
Australian scientists announced that they had "teleported" a laser beam—breaking it up and reconstructing it in another location.

I find this last one very interesting.
