March 23.

1801 Tsar Paul I of Russia is murdered in his own bedroom by a group of dissident senior officers. They roust his son, Alexander, now Tsar Alexander I, all of 23 years of ago, and tell him "Time to grow up! Go and rule!"

1857. Elisha Otis's first elevator becomes operational at 488 Broadway, New York City.

1889. President Benjamin Harrison signs legislation to open the state of Oklahoma to white settlement. Over two million acres are available, on a first come, first staked-out basis (no more than 160 acres, and they had to settle the land and improve it to gain title). The land will be available at high noon on April 22. A few people illegally enter the land early and stake their claims before the proper time, and come to be known as "Sooners", leading to hundreds of legal disputes.



1919. Benito Mussolini founds his fascist movement in Milan, Italy.

1933. The German Reichstag passes the Enabling Act, effectively appointing Hitler dictator of Germany.
