Today in History

May 2 2008 Today in History Newsletter

Greetings, everyone!

I want to apologize for not sending this newsletter out for two weeks! I had knee surgery on April 11th, and the following week was spent recovering. Then last week was spent getting caught up! I think everything’s back on track so here you go with the weekly newsletter!

Here's the latest article from the Today in History site at

The Battle of Alcatraz (May 2-4, 1946)
The bloodiest escape attempt in the 29-year history of one of America's most formidable prisons: Alcatraz.

Please visit for even more great content about Today in History. Last week’s featured article was on the Death of the Red Baron. You can find that story here:

Make sure to swing by the Today in History forum! We’re very relaxed there. You can find the forum here:

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
