This is a community for people to present and talk about interesting figures and events from history!
The rules are pretty simple:
To prevent any crowding, we'd like to keep the posts to one a day at least. I figure the solution to this is for anyone who is interested to write the day they would like to have in the comments of the original post (September 5, 2008). Try to keep it chronological! Don't pick a day two months from now, nobody is going to see that after a while. It is moderated so if you try to post out of turn you won't be able to! That is what you get for being a chump.
If things are running pretty slow though, I can turn off the moderation and people can go ahead and post willy-nilly.
