TBT Throw Back Thursday This Day in History: American President in Berlin to Bicycles to Beatles

In true TBT (Throw Back Thursday) style, on this day in history (June 26), a wide array of events took place which are fun to study for history's sake or just for fun.

PE TRIVIA

1819 - The bicycle was patented.  This is also important to my family, because we love to bicycle. There is a statewide trail in our town that used to be an old railroad line, along the Missouri River. It's called the K-T trail (Kansas-Texas Railroad is what it stands for, I believe).

AMERICAN HISTORY TRIVIA

1804 - After traveling 400 river miles westward, the Lewis & Clark Expedition reached the mouth of the Kansas River. Lewis & Clark are of extra importance to us, because we live on the outskirts of St. Louis (You know, Gateway to the West marked by this large silver color ARCH).

1844 - John Tyler, the first president to get married while in office married Julia Gardiner.

1963 - President John F. Kennedy announced, "Ich Bin Ein Berliner" while he stood at the Berlin Wall in Germany. His announcement is translated, "I am a Berliner".

THEATER/MOVIE/DRAMA TRIVIA

1925 - "The Gold Rush", Charlie Chaplin's film premiered.

MUSIC TRIVIA

1964 - The Beatles released their album, "A Hard Day's Night"
1977 - Elvis Presley played his last concert before his death.
