I don't do a lot of "This Day In History" posts, but glancing at the list for today showed that this date has been a pretty exciting time.
1903 - The U.S. signed a permanent lease on Guantanamo Bay.
1942 - A Japanese sub shelled the coast of California, which I believe is the last time a foreign power attacked the U.S. mainland until 9/11.
1945 - The U.S. flag was raised over Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima by Marines fighting to capture the island.
1997 - Scottish scientists debuted their cloned sheep, Dolly.
2005 - Efforts to identify remains from the 9/11 attacks end.
I wonder what 2012 will add to this list?
