50 years ago today, the Woodstock Music Festival opened in the small town of Bethal in upstate New York. Planned as a small event on a patch of farmland, the pop and rock festival went down in history: almost half a million rock fans came to Woodstock to celebrate “Three Days of Peace and Music.”

Today in History: Major blackout in 2003

Today in History: Major blackout in 2003

16 years ago today, massive power failures caused chaos across the eastern United States and Canada, hitting major cities such as New York and Ottawa. The worst power cut in US history affected more than 50 million people. Power was up and running again after nearly 30 hours. Most of the blame for the blackouts was laid on an Ohio-based plant operator, FirstEnergy, one of whose plants had shut down unexpectedly, cutting off a major supply route into the main electrical grid.

Today in History: Louis Armstrong born in 1901

Today in History: Louis Armstrong born in 1901

Louis Armstrong is best known as one of the greats in jazz music. Born in New Orleans, he began playing in public after dropping out of school at age 11. By the time he was 14, Armstrong was playing his cornet in a night club. Like many other jazz musicians, he moved to Chicago which was quickly becoming the center of Jazz in the United States. Over the next few years even during the great depression of the early thirties he still found work due to his unique style. In 1964 he recorded his biggest hit “Hello, Dolly!” which not only went to number 1 on the pop music chart but even dislodged the Beatles. Armstrong died on July 6, 1971.
