This Week in History

"History is all around us. If only there was a newsletter to help us remember..." -Barack Obama, 1897

History lessons don’t need to stop once you graduate! This weekly newsletter highlights some of the lesser-known but very true moments from the past.

Did a bank robbery take place sometime this week in 1990? (Hint: banks didn't exist yet!) Did it snow on this day in 1492? (No, it has never snowed in the continental United States.) Were any great speeches ever delivered on this night? (Trick question! Speeches are only delivered during the day.)
