Rethabile tagged me for the birthday meme. This was great! Thank you brother. I found out some interesting facts about my birthday, August 13th.


Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday, month and day only

1. List 3 events that occurred on that day List 2 important birthdays
2. List one notable death
3. List a holiday or observance (if any)
Finally: Tag five of your friends.

1. List 3 events that occurred on that day:

1415 - Hundred Years' War: Henry V of England lands at Chef-en-Caux, France with 8000 men.

1960 - The Central African Republic declares independence from France.

1987 - U.S. President Ronald Reagan assumes responsibility for his role in the Iran-Contra scandal.
2. List 2 important birthdays:

3. List one notable death:
