  On this day in history

According to Irish Archbishop James Ussher, God created the world today, a Sunday, at 9:00a.m. in 4004 BC. What a day for battles! In 42 BC Mark Antony and Octavian defeated Cassius and Brutus (who was mortally wounded) in the Second Battle of Philippi. Also today, the battles of Edgehill, Caporetto, El Alamein, Leyte Gulf, the Hungarian Uprising, and the Women's Rights Convention in Worcester, MA in 1850! Suicide bombings were launched today in 1983 as a terrorist drove a dynamite truck into US Marine HQ in Beirut with 241 deaths. Also dead: Theophile Gautier, Dutch Schultz, Zane Grey, Al Jolson and Mme Chiang Kai-chek. Born: Michael Crichton, Weird Al Yankovic, Doug Flutie, Diana Dors, Bella Darvi, Johnny Carson and Pelé.
