Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.
1848 - California gold rush: James W. Marshall finds gold at Sutter's Mill near Sacramento.
1908 - Robert Baden-Powell begins the Boy Scout movement.
1984 - The first Apple Macintosh goes on sale.
I never realized that gold was found at Sutter's Mill on my birthday. I remember learing about the gold rush in school but never knew it all started on my birthday. Nothing special seems to have happened on my birthday in the year I was born. My best friend has a list of bad things including earthquakes and wars that happened on his birthday.
76 - Hadrian, Roman Emperor (d. 138)
1959 - Vic Reeves, English comedian
41 - Roman Emperor Gaius Caesar (Caligula), known for his eccentricity and cruel despotism, is assassinated by his disgruntled Praetorian Guards. Claudius succeeds his nephew.
Since I studied Classics and Roman archaeology I had to choose Hadrian and Caligula for birthdays and deaths.
