May 1 2009 Today in History Newsletter


Greetings, Today in History lovers!

The month of April saw some very exciting articles go live! If you're wondering where things have been going, well, I'll tell you!

I've reformatted my articles, and I hope you like the new layouts! They should be easier to read and still give you a fire-hydrant-esque deluge of information. Here's what we have for April:

April Fools Day History and Origins (April 1)
April 1st has become the day for pranks and practical jokes, but, why? Was it because of a Christian celebration or was it due to a change in calendars? Or was it something else entirely...

Lee Surrenders to Grant (April 9, 1865)
Lee surrendered to Grant in Appomattox on April 9, 1865. Why was there even a war? Did the South have the right to act as they did and were their needs addressed by the War? How did it all go down? We'll examine some of the lesser-known history leading up to that event.

Assassination of Lincoln (April 14, 1865)
Was Booth just a crazed person who randomly shot President Lincoln? Or, was his assassination of the President something carefully thought out and executed? Why did he do it? We'll take a look at the answers to these questions.

Norris McWhirter Dies (April 19, 2004)
Norris McWhirter, author and fact-finder, died on April 19, 2004. Do you know who he was? This article examines the life of one of the World's most noted author.

Chernobyl Disaster (April 26, 1986)
In 1979, TMI in Middletwon, PA, had a meltdown that released virtually no radiation into the atmosphere. Still, the government took precautions and evacuated the residents. In 1986, Chernobyl's reactor number 4 exploded, but nothing was really done about it. What caused the disaster?
