1536. On this date Spaniard Pedro de Mendoza founded Buenos Aires.

1653. On this date New Amsterdam, later renamed New York City, is incorporated.

1790. The Supreme Court convenes for the first time.

1887. Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania observes the first Groundhog Day.

1925. Dogsleds reach Nome, Alaska, with Diptheria serum (antitoxin). The "serum run to Nome", also known as the "Great Race of Mercy", inspires the Iditarod race.

1943. The last German forces in Stalingrad surrender. Those who have kept up with this thread will be unsurprised to hear that I plan to post a longer summary of these events as soon as possible.

1974. The F-16 Fighting Falcon jetfighter plane flies for the first time.

1989. The last Soviet column leaves Kabul, Afghanistan.

2009. Donger eagerly awaits my summary of the Battle of Stalingrad, and plans to read every word, even though he knows just as much about it as I do.
