Dr. Pepper, Rosa Parks and Abraham Lincoln all share an important newsworthy anniversary on December 1st.

Read on to learn about these and other events from this date in history. 

         1824 – Since no U.S. presidential candidate received a majority of the total electoral college votes in the election, the United States House of Representatives is given the task of deciding the winner in accordance with the Twelfth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Andrew JacksonJohn Quincy AdamsHenry Clay and William Crawford were the primary contenders. John Quincy Adam was declared President and William Crawford as Vice President. Then, as now, the situation caused much political party infighting, as well as public rancor.

         1862 – In his State of the Union Address President Abraham Lincoln reaffirms the necessity of ending slavery as ordered ten weeks earlier in the Emancipation Proclamation.

         1865 – Shaw University, the first historically black university in the southern United States, is founded in Raleigh, North Carolina.

         1885 – The soft drink Dr. Pepper is first served at a drug store in Waco, Texas.

         1913 – The Ford Motor Company introduces the first moving assembly line.

         1955 – In Montgomery, Alabama, seamstress Rosa Parks refuses to give up her bus seat to a white man and is arrested for violating the city's racial segregation laws, an incident which leads to the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

         1969 – Vietnam War: The first draft lottery in the United States is held since World War II.

         1988 – Benazir Bhutto is appointed Prime Minister of Pakistan.

         1990 – The Channel Tunnel uniting the United Kingdom and France meet 40 meters beneath the seabed.

While these interesting facts about Dr. Pepper, Rosa Parks and Abraham Lincoln on December 1st have nothing to do with my real estate business selling Silicon Valley homes to families in San Jose, Cupertino and Saratoga in Santa Clara County, Calif., they add fun and entertainment to life.
