This Day in American History
Edited by Ralph Mango

Since Ralph Mango assumed the role of Associate Editor, proofing and reviewing the final draft of each news edition, he has become interested in "This Day in American History." His role also requires him to fix grammar and punctuation, eliminate duplications, correct chronology, add missed events, and he will ask me to explain or re-write original items.

This feature began over 30 years ago. I would include what happened on a day of the month in a birthday card that I sent to a client, friend, or vendor. Originally it was put together from various American history books as I am a history buff. It was before the internet, which brought even more opportunities, including links to footnote events that are included as reference points in many of the events listed in “This Day.”

It takes Ralph over an hour each issue, as it does me, to make corrections or explain further, as well as add new events. Sometimes the day has not been updated in five years or longer as each one is completed for a news edition.

I keep thinking they are getting too long, but then, we might leave out an interesting fact that occurred that day. Certainly, they may help you if you watch Jeopardy, or play Trivial Pursuit. It originally was to show what in American History happened on the date of your birthday.
