3 Odd but Cool Things That Happened in History on January 14

By Michelle Carr Crowe, Silicon Valley real estate guide selling homes in San Jose

Do you, like me, get a thrill learning new things daily? If you’ve read my blog, you know one of the pastimes I enjoy is discovering new facts and interesting pieces of history.

I like to share intriguing stories from our local newspaper the San Jose Mercury News, as well as from some of my favorite print and online magazines Mental Floss, the National Geographic Society or  Smithsonian Magazine. Other times I find articles or facts online at  The History Place, Brainy History,orDates In History.These events for today’s blog post are primarily from History Orb and Wikipedia.

While these interesting items are intriguing, they have nothing to do with my real estate business, helping people like you buy and sell homes in Silicon Valley, Calif. and beyond. I admit, they just add fun and fascination to life.

Here are today’s 3 Odd but Cool Things That Happened in History on January 14, I hope you find them interesting, too.

Great tips.  One more:  It is the day before Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born.  Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  We still remember and respect what you did for us all!

Always a fun post to read. Weird to think the revolutionary war lasted almost 6 years.

Rosemary, I also wish MLK Jr. and his family a happy birthday.

Nancy-yes that was one of those personally interesting items.

Gary, yes, especially when you think many of those soldiers were not being paid! How many of our servicepeople would stay if that happened?

Mike-thanks for reading, feel free to re-blog/share.

John-thank you for the kind words and reading.
