It may just be me, (in fact I’m pretty certain it is) but I think it’s really interesting to see what historical events took place from week to week. It kind of makes the world seem a little smaller.
This week is a good one. In addition to the below Slaps, Howard Hughs flew around the world in 91 hours and Babe Ruth debuted as a pitcher. Plus, Tuesday is both Nikola Tesla’s and Jessica Simpson’s birthday.
Here’s some more Slap fodder:
- Tuesday – Vacuum cleaner invented – 152nd anniversary (1 gold coin)
- Wednesday – Aaron Burr mortally wounds Alexander Hamilton in a duel – 208th anniversary (2 gold coins)
- Friday – Hollywood Sign is dedicated – 89th anniversary (3 gold coins)
