During this week in history - with a little humor thrown in.
If you want the funny, go to Bizarre Holidays
For the serious go to History Net
January 27th, 1862 - President Lincoln issues General War Order No. 1, setting in motion the Union armies.
1967 - Three astronauts are killed in a flash fire that engulfed their Apollo 1 spacecraft.
1973 - A cease fire in Viet Nam is called as the Paris peace accords are signed by the United States and North Viet Nam. Never mind that troops were still killed and we bailed on the South Vietnamese.
"You'll be flying along some nights with a full moon. You're up at 45,000 feet. Up there you can see it like you can't see it down here. It's just the big, bright, clear moon. You look up there and just say to yourself: I've got to get up there. I've just got to get one of those flights." - Roger Chaffee, Lt Commander, USN
"If we die, we want people to accept it. We're in a risky business, and we hope that if anything happens to us it will not delay the program. The conquest of space is worth the risk of life." - Gus Grissom, Lt Colonel, USAF
"I think you have to understand the feeling that a pilot has, that a test pilot has, that I look forward a great deal to making the first flight. There's a great deal of pride involved in making a first flight." - Ed White, Lt Colonel, USAF
"If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong." - Abraham Lincoln
"South Viet Nam can never even survive anyway." - Richard Nixon (from his own audio tapes) - RIH, Tricky Dick
