There are a LOT of places to find “this date in history” type stuff on websites. But I thought it would be fun to add the feature here for fun. And, as I’m doing it for fun, I’ll be adding historical events a bit at a time.

So, for 2020, you might be seeing one event per day, unless I get particularly inspired, but I’ll be adding to the database as I go.

If you have one you’d like us to add, you can let us know (note that we don’t have a front-end post submission form for this yet.)
