History Meme

Ok, I was tagged by Becky to do this history meme. You just go to Wikipedia, type in your birthday...mine is June 25, just the month and day, not the year. Then choose the following:

Three Events:

1788 - Virginia becomes the 10th state to ratify the United States Constitution.
1949 - Long-Haired Hare is released in Theaters starring Bugs Bunny and Giovanni Jones
1950 - The beginning of the Korean War.

Two Birthdays:

1945 - Carly Simon, American singer
1972 - Mike Kroeger, American bassplayer (Nickelback)

One Death:

1992 - Jerome Brown, American football player (b. 1965)

One Holiday or Observance:

National Catfish Day

Sorry, I can't link tonight for some reason, I don't know if blogger is acting up or what...
