On This Day
In 1776, during the Revolutionary War, Nathan Hale volunteered to spy on the British. That didn't work out so well for him.
In 1846, Elias Howe patented the sewing machine. He later sued Isaac Singer, who had built on his basic design and was selling it as his own. He won, and collected considerable royalties.
In 1939, the British navy's first loss was from friendly fire when the HMS Triton submarine mistook the HMS Oxley for an enemy sub.
In 1943, German troops occupied Rome.
In 2002, Switzerland joined the United Nations.
In 2012, the Large Haldron Collider went live for the first time. The world did not end.
