On Tuesday, 11 September 2001, Islamic terrorists made suicide attacks with hijacked airliners on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC. A fourth airliner was diverted from its intended target by American Citizen-martyrs on board.
As a result of these events, in the misguided name of security, Constitutional and civil rights in the United States were greatly restricted. This was the first step of the plunge into tyranny which led directly to the Second American Civil War.
On 13 September 1814, while being detained aboard a British warship, American patriot Francis Scott Key witnessed the British bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. Inspired by the spectacle, he wrote the poem, "The Star Spangled Banner," which was later set to music to become the National Anthem of the United States of America.
On 17 September 1787, the Constitution of the United States of America was signed by forty members of the Constitutional Convention.
On 4 October 1957, Sputnik I, the first artificial object to achieve Earth orbit, was launched by the Soviet Union. This primitive beeper-on-a-booster launched the Space Race, which the United States won, by being first to place human beings on the Moon and return them safely to Earth - and lost, by not following through.
But now... the race is on again.
On 5 October 1882, Robert Goddard, father of modern rocketry, was born in Worcester, Massachusetts.
On 14 October 1943, some three hundred condemned prisoners - Jews, Russians, Gypsies, and others - escaped from the Sobibor extermination camp in Nazi-occupied Poland.
THE NAZIS DIDN'T JUST LET THEM GO. There were no UN "Peacekeepers." HOW DID THEY GET OUT?
They fabricated WEAPONS, or STOLE them from the guards, and FOUGHT THEIR WAY OUT.
There's a lesson here. Learn it.
On 14 October 1947, Captain Charles E. "Chuck" Yeager of the United States Air Force, flying the Bell X-1, became the first man to exceed the speed of sound in controlled flight.
On 16 October 1991, a madman drove a truck through the walls of Luby's Cafeteria in Kileen, Texas, and began methodically murdering the customers. Suzanna Hupp could have stopped the ensuing massacre, but the law did not allow her to carry her concealed weapon into the cafeteria.
Disarmed by a deadly law, she watched helplessly as her own parents were murdered.
Hupp was elected to the legislature and changed the law to allow citizens to defend themselves.
On 19 October 1781 at Yorktown, Virginia, British General Charles Cornwallis surrendered his forces to the Continental Army under General George Washington, effectively ending the American War of Independence.
