July 28th

This post was actually going to be about the month of December but after doing some reading on Wikipedia, I decided to write about the day I was born. I didn’t realize that so much had happened on that date.

The Battle of Cascina was fought in 1364. Five hundred years later the Battle of Ezra Church was found during the American civil war. In 1976, the Tangshan earthquake measuring between 7.8 and 8.2 moment magnitude flattens Tangshan, the People’s Republic of China, killing 242,769 and injuring 164,851. And more recently in 2008, the historic Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare burned down for the second time in 80 years.

Who would have thought all of that happened on July 28th? I haven’t heard of any of these events but it’s interesting to read about different things that happened on the date your were born. Unfortunately, a look in the births didn’t include my name and thankfully the deaths didn’t either.

If you get a chance and don’t have anything else to do, you should check out Wikipedia and see for yourself what happened on the date you were born. I’m sure you will find it fascinating and you will learn something in the process.

Thanks for visiting!
