‎Today, ‎June ‎02, ‎2023Buy Now!

June 2, 1967: Record Releases: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles is released in the US, having been released on May 26, 1967 in the UK. It is the eighth studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. It spent 27 weeks at number one on the UK Albums Chart and 15 weeks at number one in the US. It was lauded by critics for its innovations in production, songwriting and graphic design, for bridging a cultural divide between popular music and high art, and for providing a musical representation of its generation and the contemporary counterculture. It won four Grammy Awards in 1968, including Album of the Year, the first rock LP to receive this honour. In August 1966, the Beatles permanently retired from touring and began a three-month holiday. During a return flight to London in November, Paul McCartney had an idea for a song involving an Edwardian military band that formed the impetus of the Sgt. Pepper concept. Sessions began on 24 November in Abbey Road Studio Two with two compositions inspired by the Beatles' youth, "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Penny Lane", but after pressure from EMI, the songs were released as a double A-side single and not included on the album. In February 1967, after recording the title track "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", McCartney suggested that the Beatles should release an entire album representing a performance by the fictional Sgt. Pepper band. This alter ego group would give them the freedom to experiment musically. During the recording sessions, the band furthered the technological progression they had made with their 1966 album Revolver. Knowing they would not have to perform the tracks live, they adopted an experimental approach to composition and recording on songs such as "With a Little Help from My Friends", "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "A Day in the Life". Producer George Martin and engineer Geoff Emerick helped realise the group's ideas by approaching the studio as an instrument, applying orchestral overdubs, sound effects and other methods of tape manipulation. Recording was completed on 21 April 1967. The cover, depicting the Beatles posing in front of a tableau of celebrities and historical figures, was designed by the British pop artists Peter Blake and Jann Haworth. Sgt. Pepper is regarded by musicologists as an early concept album that advanced the use of extended form in popular music while continuing the artistic maturation seen on the Beatles' preceding releases. It is described as one of the first art rock LPs, aiding the development of progressive rock, and is credited with marking the beginning of the album era. An important work of British psychedelia, the album incorporates a range of stylistic influences, including vaudeville, circus, music hall, avant-garde, and Western and Indian classical music. In 2003, the Library of Congress placed Sgt. Pepper in the National Recording Registry as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". That year, Rolling Stone ranked it number one in its list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". As of 2011, it has sold more than 32 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums. Professor Kevin J. Dettmar, writing in the Oxford Encyclopedia of British Literature, described it as "the most important and influential rock and roll album ever recorded".

June 2, 1904: #BOTD: #HBD! Johnny Weissmuller, Austro-Hungarian-born American champion competition swimmer, Olympic gold medalist, Olympic bronze medalist, water polo player and actor (d. January 20, 1984) is #born Janos (Johann) Peter Weissmuller in Freidorf, in the Hungarian part of Austria-Hungary (now part of Romania). Weissmuller was known for playing Edgar Rice Burroughs' ape man Tarzan in films of the 1930s and 1940s and for having one of the best competitive swimming records of the 20th century. Weissmuller was one of the world's fastest swimmers in the 1920s, winning five Olympic gold medals for swimming and one bronze medal for water polo. Johnny Weissmuller was undefeated in official competition for the entirety of his competitive career. He was the first to break the one minute barrier for 100-meter freestyle, and the first to swim 440-yard freestyle under five minutes. He won fifty-two U.S. national championships and set more than 50 world records (spread over both freestyle and backstroke). After retiring from competitions, he became the sixth actor to portray Tarzan, a role he played in twelve feature films. Dozens of other actors have also played Tarzan, but Weissmuller is by far the best known. Weissmuller's distinctive Tarzan yell is still often used in films in his legacy. Johnny Weissmuller died on January 20, 1984 from pulmonary edema at the age of 79. He was buried just outside Acapulco, Valle de La Luz at the Valley of the Light Cemetery. As his coffin was lowered into the ground, a recording of the Tarzan yell he invented was played three times, at his request. He was honored with a 21-gun salute, befitting a head-of-state, which was arranged by Senator Ted Kennedy and President Ronald Reagan.

He is buried at Molinos Cemetery in Los Molinos, California. Two years prior to his death, on the same calendar date, Sgt. Pepper was released in the US; he was originally planned to be on the cover the of the album, but was removed because he wanted money for the use of his picture. Leo Gorcey was born Leo Bernard Gorcey in New York City on June 3, 1917, the son of Josephine (nee Condon), an Irish Catholic immigrant, and Bernard Gorcey, a Russian Jewish immigrant, the latter appearing as an actor in many of his son's films. Leo Gorcey became famous for portraying the leader of the group of young hooligans known variously as the Dead End Kids, The East Side Kids, and as an adult, The Bowery Boys. Always the most pugnacious member of the gangs in which he participated, young Leo was the filmic prototype of the young punk. He was the top paid actor in the world during much of the 1950s. He was the shortest member of the original gang. Leo Gorcey was modelled and originally included on the cover of The Beatles album cover Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to the left of Huntz Hall, but was subsequently removed when a fee of 400 USD was requested for the use of the actor's likeness.

June 2, 1857: #BOTD: #HBD! Edward Elgar, English composer and academic (d. February 23, 1934) is #born Edward William Elgar in the small village of Lower Broadheath, outside Worcester, England. Sir Edward William Elgar, 1st Baronet's many of whose works have entered the British and international classical concert repertoire. Among his best-known compositions are orchestral works including the Enigma Variations, the Pomp and Circumstance Marches, concertos for violin and cello, and two symphonies. He also composed choral works, including The Dream of Gerontius, chamber music and songs. He was appointed Master of the King's Musick in 1924. Although Elgar is often regarded as a typically English composer, most of his musical influences were not from England but from continental Europe. He felt himself to be an outsider, not only musically, but socially. In musical circles dominated by academics, he was a self-taught composer; in Protestant Britain, his Roman Catholicism was regarded with suspicion in some quarters; and in the class-conscious society of Victorian and Edwardian Britain, he was acutely sensitive about his humble origins even after he achieved recognition. He nevertheless married the daughter of a senior British army officer. She inspired him both musically and socially, but he struggled to achieve success until his forties, when after a series of moderately successful works his Enigma Variations (1899) became immediately popular in Britain and overseas. He followed the Variations with a choral work, The Dream of Gerontius (1900), based on a Roman Catholic text that caused some disquiet in the Anglican establishment in Britain, but it became, and has remained, a core repertory work in Britain and elsewhere. His later full-length religious choral works were well received but have not entered the regular repertory. In his fifties, Elgar composed a symphony and a violin concerto that were immensely successful. His second symphony and his cello concerto did not gain immediate public popularity and took many years to achieve a regular place in the concert repertory of British orchestras. Elgar's music came, in his later years, to be seen as appealing chiefly to British audiences. His stock remained low for a generation after his death. It began to revive significantly in the 1960s, helped by new recordings of his works. Some of his works have, in recent years, been taken up again internationally, but the music continues to be played more in Britain than elsewhere. Elgar has been described as the first composer to take the gramophone seriously. Between 1914 and 1925, he conducted a series of acoustic recordings of his works. The introduction of the moving-coil microphone in 1923 made far more accurate sound reproduction possible, and Elgar made new recordings of most of his major orchestral works and excerpts from The Dream of Gerontius.

June 2, 1961: #DOTD: #RIP: George S. Kaufman, American theatre director, producer, humorist, drama critic and playwright (b. November 16, 1889) #dies of heart failure in New York City at the age of 71. Born into a Jewish family in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, George Simon Kaufman was a member of the Algonquin Round Table, a famous circle of writers and show business people. In addition to comedies and political satire, he wrote several musicals for the Marx Brothers and others. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the musical Of Thee I Sing (with Morrie Ryskind and Ira Gershwin) in 1932, and won again in 1937 for the play You Can't Take It with You (with Moss Hart). He also won the Tony Award for Best Director in 1951 for the musical Guys and Dolls. Despite his claim that he knew nothing about music and hated it in the theatre, Kaufman collaborated on many musical theatre projects. His most successful of such efforts include two Broadway shows crafted for the Marx Brothers, The Cocoanuts, written with Irving Berlin, and Animal Crackers, written with Morrie Ryskind, Bert Kalmar, and Harry Ruby. According to Charlotte Chandler, "By the time Animal Crackers opened ... the Marx Brothers were becoming famous enough to interest Hollywood. Paramount signed them to a contract". Kaufman was one of the writers who excelled in writing intelligent nonsense for Groucho Marx, a process that was collaborative, given Groucho's skills at expanding upon the scripted material. Though the Marx Brothers were notoriously critical of their writers, Groucho and Harpo Marx expressed admiration and gratitude towards Kaufman. Dick Cavett, introducing Groucho onstage at Carnegie Hall in 1972, told the audience that Groucho considered Kaufman to be "his god".

June 2, 1942: #DOTD: #RIP: Bunny Berigan, American jazz trumpeter and bandleader who rose to fame during the swing era (b. November 2, 1908) #dies in Polyclinic Hospital, New York of a massive hemorrhage sustained two days earlier, aged 33. Roland Bernard "Bunny" Berigan had his career and influence shortened by a losing battle with alcoholism that ended with his early death at age 33 from cirrhosis. Although he composed some jazz instrumentals such as "Chicken and Waffles" and "Blues", Berigan was best known for his virtuoso jazz trumpeting. His 1937 classic recording "I Can't Get Started" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1975. Having learned the violin and trumpet by 14, Berigan played in local orchestras by his mid-teens. He attended the University of Wisconsin, teaching trumpet and playing in dance bands after school hours before joining the successful Hal Kemp orchestra in 1930. His first recorded trumpet solos came with it, which toured England and a few other European countries later that year. He also appeared as featured soloist with bands fronted by Rudy Vallee, Tommy Dorsey, Abe Lyman, Paul Whiteman and Benny Goodman. Shortly after the Kemp unit returned to the U.S. in late 1930, Berigan, like fellow trumpeter Manny Klein, the Dorsey Brothers and Artie Shaw, became a sought-after studio musician in New York. From late 1932 through early 1934, Berigan was a member of Paul Whiteman's orchestra, before playing with Abe Lyman's band briefly in 1934. He recorded as a sideman on hundreds of commercial records, most notably with the Dorsey Brothers and on Glenn Miller's earliest recording date as a leader in 1935, playing on "Solo Hop". At the same time, however, Berigan made an association that began his ascent to fame in his own right: he joined Benny Goodman's Swing band. Legendary jazz talent scout and producer John H. Hammond, who also became Goodman's brother-in-law in due course, later wrote that he helped persuade Gene Krupa to re-join Goodman, with whom he had had an earlier falling-out, by mentioning that Berigan, whom Krupa admired, was already committed to the new ensemble. With Berigan and Krupa both on board, the Goodman band made the legendary, often disheartening tour that ended with their unexpectedly headline-making stand at the Palomar Ballroom in Los Angeles, the stand often credited with the "formal" launch of the swing era. Berigan recorded a number of classic solos while with Goodman, including on "King Porter Stomp", "Sometimes I'm Happy", and "Blue Skies". Berigan left Goodman to return again to freelancing as a recording and radio musician in Manhattan. During this time (late 1935 and throughout 1936), he began to record regularly under his own name, and continued to back singers such as Bing Crosby, Mildred Bailey, and Billie Holiday. He spend some time with Tommy Dorsey's orchestra in late 1936 and early 1937, working as a jazz soloist on Dorsey's radio program and on several records. His solo on the Dorsey hit recording "Marie" became considered one of his signature performances. In 1937, Berigan assembled a band to record and tour under his name, picking the then-little known Ira Gershwin/Vernon Duke composition, "I Can't Get Started" as his theme song. Among the notable players who worked in the Berigan band were: drummers Buddy Rich, Dave Tough, George Wettling, Johnny Blowers, and Jack Sperling; alto saxophonists/clarinetists Gus Bivona, Joe Dixon, and Andy Fitzgerald; vocalists Danny Richards, Ruth Bradley and Kathleen Lane; pianist Joe Bushkin, trombonist/arranger Ray Conniff, trombonist Sonny Lee; bassists Hank Wayland, and Morty Stulmaker, trumpeters Carl "Bama" Warwick, Steve Lipkins, and Les Elgart; tenor saxophonists Georgie Auld, and Don Lodice; and pianist/arranger Joe Lippman. Berigan's business troubles drove him to declare bankruptcy in 1939, and shortly after to join Tommy Dorsey as a featured jazz soloist. By September 1940, Berigan briefly led a new small group, but soon reorganized a touring big band. Berigan led moderately successful big bands from the fall of 1940 into early 1942, and was on the comeback trail when his health declined alarmingly. On April 20, 1942, while on tour, Berigan was hospitalized with pneumonia in Allegheny General Hospital Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania until May 8. But his doctors discovered worse news: that cirrhosis had severely damaged his liver. He was advised to stop drinking and stop playing the trumpet for an undetermined length of time. Berigan couldn't do either. On Sale @ 15% Off Discount Till Midnight PT! https://store.earthstation1.com/benny-goodman39s-camel-caravan-swing-school-old-time-radio-mp3393.html

June 2, 1997: #DOTD: #RIP: Doc Cheatham, American jazz trumpeter, singer, and bandleader (b. June 13, 1905) #dies from a stroke, eleven days shy of his 92nd birthday, in Washington D.C.. He was born Adolphus Anthony Cheatham in Nashville, Tennessee, United States, of African, Cherokee and Choctaw heritage. After having played in some of the leading jazz groups from the 1920s on, Doc Cheatham enjoyed renewed acclaim in later decades of his career. He himself agreed with the critical assessment that he was probably the only jazz musician to create his best work after the age of 70. Cheatham was born in Nashville, Tennessee of African, Cherokee and Choctaw heritage. He noted there was no jazz music there in his youth; like many in the United States he was introduced to the style by early recordings and touring groups at the end of the 1910s. He abandoned his family's plans for him to be a pharmacist (although retaining the medically inspired nickname "Doc") to play music, initially playing soprano and tenor saxophone in addition to trumpet in Nashville's African American Vaudeville theater. Cheatham later toured in band accompanying blues singers on the Theater Owners Booking Association circuit. His early jazz influences included Henry Busse and Johnny Dunn, but when he moved to Chicago in 1924 he heard King Oliver. Oliver's playing was a revelation to Cheatham. Cheatham followed the jazz King around. Oliver gave young Cheatham a mute which Cheatham treasured and performed with for the rest of his career. A further revelation came the following year when Louis Armstrong returned to Chicago. Armstrong would be a lifelong influence on Cheatham. Cheatham played in Albert Wynn's band (and occasionally substituted for Armstrong at the Vendome Theater), and recorded on sax with Ma Rainey before moving to Philadelphia in 1927, where he worked with the bands of Bobby Lee and Wilbur de Paris before moving to New York City the following year. After a short stint with Chick Webb he left to tour Europe with Sam Wooding's band. Cheatham returned to the United States in 1930, and played with Marion Handy and McKinney's Cotton Pickers before landing a job with Cab Calloway. Cheatham was Calloway's lead trumpeter from 1932 through 1939. He performed with Benny Carter, Teddy Wilson, Fletcher Henderson, and Claude Hopkins in the 1940s; after World War II he started working regularly with Latin bands in New York City, including the bands of Perez Prado, Marcelino Guerra, Ricardo Ray (on whose catchy, hook-laden album "Jala, Jala Boogaloo, Volume II", he played exquisitely (but uncredited), particularly on the track "Mr. Trumpet Man"), Machito, and others. The first time Cheatham joined Machito's band, he was fired because he couldn't cope with clave rhythm. Cheatham eventually got the hang of it. In addition to continuing Latin gigs, he played again with Wilbur de Paris and Sammy Price. He led his own band on Broadway for five years starting in 1960, after which he toured with Benny Goodman. In 1959, the U.S. State Department funded a trip for bandleader Herbie Mann to visit Africa, after they heard his version of "African Suite", and Cheatham joined the band for a grueling 14-week tour between December and April 1960 to Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, Mozambique, Rhodesia, Tanganyika, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Morocco, and Tunisia. In the 1970s, Doc Cheatham made a vigorous self-assessment to improve his playing, including taping himself and critically listening to the recordings, then endeavoring to eliminate all cliches from his playing. The discipline paid off, and Doc received ever-improving critical attention. His singing career began almost by accident in a Paris recording studio on 2 May 1977. As a level and microphone check at the start of a recording session with Sammy Price's band, Cheatham sang and scatted his way through a couple of choruses of "What Can I Say Dear After I Say I'm Sorry". The miking happened to be good from the start and the tape machine was already rolling, and the track was issued on the LP Doc Cheatham: Good for What Ails You. His singing was well received and Cheatham continued to sing in addition to play music for the rest of his career. Cheatham toured widely in addition to his regular Sunday brunch gig leading the band at Sweet Basil in Manhattan's Greenwich Village in his final decade. During one of his frequent trips to New Orleans, Louisiana, he met and befriended young trumpet virtuoso Nicholas Payton. In 1996 the two trumpeters and pianist Butch Thompson recorded a CD for Verve Records, Doc Cheatham and Nicholas Payton, which won them a Grammy Award. Doc Cheatham continued playing until two days before his death, eleven days shy of his 92nd birthday.

June 2, 1943: World War II: The Tuskegee Airmen: The 99th Pursuit Squadron, known ot history as The Tuskeegee Airmen, flew its first combat mission during World War II, when it strafed the island of Pantelleria off the coast of Italy. By the war's end, the 99th, which became known as the "Red Tails" by the distinctive tail markings on its planes, had flown more than 3,000 missions over Europe. It had taken part in the fighting in North Africa, Sicily, mainland Italy, and the bombing campaigns over the continent. In 1941, the United States War Department (now the Department of Defense), and the Army Air Corps, which was soon to become the Army Air Forces (USAAF) finally, under considerable pressure, agreed to create the first African American flying unit, the 99th Pursuit Squadron. African Americans had been trying unsuccessfully to become pilots since World War I. The military at the time was segregated, for example most of the units that had served in the western U.S. (Buffalo Soldiers), had white officers assigned to them. African Americans had a tough time in even becoming civilian pilots. In 1940, there were only 124 civilian pilots in the nation. However, the number of qualified applicants for the new unit, despite there being very restrictive requirements in place, gave the program the boost it needed to survive. The 99th Pursuit Squadron was activated - without pilots at that point- on March 22, 1941. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt also breathed life into the program when she visited the Squadron on March 29, 1941. Mrs. Roosevelt flew with chief civilian instructor C. Alfred "Chief" Anderson. Anderson, who had been a qualified civilian pilot since 1929, took the First Lady on a half-hour flight. After landing, the First Lady said, "Well, you can fly all right." In June 1941, the squadron was transferred to Tuskegee, Alabama for flight training. Captain Benjamin O. Davis Jr. was the first African American pilot to fly solo in an Army Air Corps aircraft. The class graduated in March of 1942. Davis was given command of the squadron in July of that year and promoted to Lieutenant Colonel. Davis was a fascinating character. His father, Benjamin O. Davis Sr., had served 41 years before being promoted to the rank of Brigadier General. Davis Jr. was appointed to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1932. During his time there, he was isolated, not given a roommate, and was not spoken to outside of the line of duty. He ate his meals by himself. Yet, rather than that situation forcing him out it steeled his resolve. Davis became only the fourth African American to graduate from West Point - the first three had done so in the 1870s and 1880s. At the time of his commissioning, the Army had only two African American officers, Davis, and his father. At the time of its initial deployment in April 1943, the 99th was redesignated as the 99th Fighter Squadron and it was flying Curtiss P-40 fighters from its base in North Africa. Its first combat mission, the bombing and strafing of Pantelleria, was part of Operation Corkscrew. The squadron would go on to support the invasion of Sicily. Captain Charles Hall was the first officer from the 99th to shoot down an enemy aircraft. In September 1943 senior officers in the Army asked that the 99th be pulled from front line duty due to poor combat performance. Davis went to a news conference at the Pentagon to defend the unit. The unit was allowed to continue flying and Davis formed the 332nd Fighter Group, an all-black fighter unit. Any doubts about the 99th's performance were put to rest during the Anzio landings in Italy. In a two-day period over the beachhead at Anzio, the Red Tails shot down 12 German aircraft.

Approximately 2,400 persons attend this White House Conference, held with the aim of the conference to build on the momentum of the Civil Rights Act Of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 in addressing discrimination against African-Americans. The four areas of discussion were housing, economic security, education, and the administration of justice. President Lyndon Johnson had promised this conference in his commencement address at Howard University the year before. Like that address, the conference was named "To Fulfill These Rights." The title was a play on "To Secure These Rights," a report issued by Truman's civil rights commission in 1947. There were over 2,400 participants, representing all the major civil rights groups except SNCC, which boycotted the conference. Out of the conference came a hundred-page report that called for "legislation to ban racial discrimination in housing and the administration of criminal justice, and...suggested increased federal spending to improve the quality of housing and education."

(#JCKaelin here: This is an event the powers that be do not want you to know about! As a media historian, I am used to such attempts to bury disgraceful history; but this is one of the worst examples. In the summer of 1967 - at precisely the same time the white community was celebrating "The Summer Of Love", the black community was burning down all across the country - and the spark that lit that fire began with this event, The Roxbury Riots Of 1967 - and there isn't even a Wikipedia page about it! I had to spend the lion's share of the afternoon of Wed. June 1, 2022 just hunting this out on the web! :/ ) June 2-5, 1967: The Long, Hot Summer Of 1967: The Roxbury Riots Of 1967: The spark that set off the racial unrest in the US known as The Long, Hot Summer Of 1967 ignites when Roxbury, Boston police immediately start beating and arresting members of The Mothers For Adequate Welfare (MAW), about 30 of whom chained themselves doors of the welfare offices in Blue Hill Avenue and staged a sit-in protesting inadequate welfare benefits, blocking people from going out or coming in until all their demands were met. Fifty-eight workers were locked in. "We are tired of having our checks cut off without warning or investigation because of malicious gossip and lying officials!" read the handwritten flier. The moment the police arrived, there was no room for negotiation; according to reports, 44 people were arrested on the first night. Roxbury, the predominantly black section of Boston Massachusetts, was relatively peaceful in the 1960s, without any riots. However, things changed on Friday, June 2, 1967, when a sit-in, organised by a group of mothers later turned into three-day violent riots fuelled by racial discrimination. Some of the women were pulled out and dragged them over broken glass. Thereafter, protest became increasingly violent, leading to the closure of roads leading to the Blue Hill Avenue. Stones were thrown at police, some businesses were burnt down and police started firing at the protestors. The riots ended on Monday, June 5, but things were not the same. The section suffered a destruction of 1.3M USD worth of property; many business owners never went back to the section. Although some reforms took place at the welfare office, the fight for better life still continued and escalated to the national level, known as the Long, Hot Summer Of 1967. Consequently, President Lyndon B. Johnson set up The Kerner Commission to investigate these riots and to provide recommendations for the future. The Commission's final report, The Report Of The National Advisory Commission On Civil Disorders, better known as The Kerner Report, was released on February 29, 1968 (Leap Day, a suspicious choice for a date since that date can only be commemorated once every four years), concluded that the riots resulted from black frustration at the lack of economic opportunity; it berated federal and state governments for failed housing, education and social-service policies; it aimed some of its sharpest criticism at the mainstream media with the words "The press has too long basked in a white world looking out of it, if at all, with white men's eyes and white perspective"; and most damning of all, the report's most famous passage: "Our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white-separate and unequal." #LongHotSummer #LongHotSummerOf1967 #RoxburyRiots #RoxburyRiotsOf1967 #MothersForAdequateWelfare #MAW #Roxbury #RoxburyBoston #PoliceBrutality #Riots #RaceRiots #CivilDisturbances #UrbanViolence #Racism #CivilRights #AfricanAmericanCivlRights #AfricanAmericanHistory #AfricanAmericanHeritage #BlackHeritage #BlackPeople #Blacks #AfricanAmericans #BlackAmericans #KernerCommission #TwoSocietiesOneBlackOneWhiteSeparateAndUnequal #TwoSocieties #SeparateAndUnequal #AmericanHistory #USHistory #HistoryOfTheUS #MP4 #VideoDownload #DVD On Sale @ 15% Off Discount Till Midnight PT! https://store.earthstation1.com/fall-of-the-great-society-amp-the-silent-majority-lbj-amp-nixon-mp4-dv4.html

June 2, 1882: #DOTD: #RIP: Giuseppe Garibaldi, Italian general, politician, nationalist and Freemason who played a large role in the history of Italy, considered, with Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour, Victor Emmanuel II of Italy and Giuseppe Mazzini as one of Italy's "Fathers Of The Fatherland" (b. July 4, 1807) #dies in Caprera, an island in the Maddalena archipelago off the coast of Sardinia, dying on a death bed he had been confined to in his final years and had moved to where he could view the sea as he died, aged 75. His wishes for a simple funeral and cremation were not respected. He was buried in his farm on the island of Caprera alongside his last wife and some of his children. Giuseppe Garibaldi was born Giuseppe Maria Garibaldi in Nice, which had been conquered by the French First Republic in 1792, to the Ligurian family of Domenico Garibaldi from Chiavari[15] and Maria Rosa Nicoletta Raimondi from Loano. In 1814, the Congress of Vienna returned Nice to Victor Emmanuel I of Sardinia; nevertheless, France re-annexed it in 1860 by the Treaty of Turin, which was ardently opposed by Garibaldi. Garibaldi's family's involvement in coastal trade drew him to a life at sea. He participated actively in the Nizzardo Italians community and was certified in 1832 as a merchant navy captain. Garibaldi personally commanded and fought in many military campaigns that led eventually to the Italian unification. He was appointed general by the provisional government of Milan in 1848, General of the Roman Republic in 1849 by the Minister of War, and led the Expedition of the Thousand on behalf and with the consent of Victor Emmanuel II. He has been called the "Hero of Two Worlds" because of his military enterprises in Brazil, Uruguay and Europe. These earned him a considerable reputation in Italy and abroad, aided by exceptional international media coverage at the time. Many of the greatest intellectuals of his time, such as Victor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas, and George Sand, showered him with admiration. The United Kingdom and the United States helped him a great deal, offering him financial and military support in difficult circumstances.

June 2, 1835: Premieres: P. T. Barnum and his circus start their first tour of the United States. Phineas Taylor Barnum, American showman, author, publisher, philanthropist, politician and businessman remembered for promoting celebrated hoaxes and for founding the Barnum and Bailey Circus (1810-1891) said of himself, "I am a showman by profession...and all the gilding shall make nothing else of me," and his personal aim was "to put money in his own coffers." Barnum is widely, but erroneously, credited with coining the phrase "There's a sucker born every minute." Born in Bethel, Connecticut, Barnum became a small-business owner in his early twenties and founded a weekly newspaper, before moving to New York City in 1834. He embarked on an entertainment career, first with a variety troupe called "Barnum's Grand Scientific and Musical Theater", and soon after by purchasing Scudder's American Museum, which he renamed after himself. Barnum used the museum as a platform to promote hoaxes and human curiosities such as the Feejee mermaid and General Tom Thumb. In 1850 he promoted the American tour of singer Jenny Lind, paying her an unprecedented 1K USD a night for 150 nights. After economic reversals due to bad investments in the 1850s, and years of litigation and public humiliation, he used a lecture tour, mostly as a temperance speaker, to emerge from debt. His museum added America's first aquarium and expanded the wax-figure department. While in New York, he converted to Universalism and was a member of the Church of the Divine Paternity, now the Fourth Universalist Society in the City of New York. Barnum served two terms in the Connecticut legislature in 1865 as a Republican for Fairfield. With the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution over slavery and African-American suffrage, Barnum spoke before the legislature and said, "A human soul, 'that God has created and Christ died for,' is not to be trifled with. It may tenant the body of a Chinaman, a Turk, an Arab, or a Hottentot - it is still an immortal spirit". Elected in 1875 as Mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut, he worked to improve the water supply, bring gas lighting to streets, and enforce liquor and prostitution laws. Barnum was instrumental in starting Bridgeport Hospital, founded in 1878, and was its first president. The circus business was the source of much of his enduring fame. He established "P. T. Barnum's Grand Traveling Museum, Menagerie, Caravan and Hippodrome," a traveling circus, menagerie and museum of "freaks", which adopted many names over the years. Barnum died of a stroke at his home residence in 1891, and was buried in Mountain Grove Cemetery, Bridgeport, which he designed himself.

June 2, 1935: #BOTD: #HBD! Bob McAllister, American television personality, magician and children's entertainer and a host of Wonderama (d. July 21, 1998) is #born Robert C. McAllister in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Bob first made his name as a ventriloquist on NBC on the Today Show in the 1950s, while still in his teens. He appeared in 1953 on CBS on Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour and was able to get his first regular television job hosting his own program on WTAR in Norfolk, Virginia. The "Bob and Chauncey Show" paired McAllister with a wise-cracking dummy ("Chauncey"). This led to his being hired on at WJZ-TV Channel 13 in Baltimore, Maryland in 1963 on The Bob McAllister Show, a half-hour program of comedy character and puppet sketches, magic acts, pantomime, cartoons and sight gags intended to revive the absurd visual surrealism of Ernie Kovacs' television work. The Bob McAllister Show was a big success and led to an offer from WNEW-TV Channel 5 in New York to host his own program there, where it premiered on September 9, 1968. The New York version of the show was not as successful as the Baltimore broadcast, and time constraints and budget restrictions led to its cancellation on Friday, September 5, 1969, after which it went into reruns. McAllister was concurrently brought in as host of the syndicated popular show Wonderama, produced by WNEW-TV, to replace the departing Sonny Fox. McAllister's version of the show premiered Sunday, August 13, 1967, and became Metromedia TV's most popular children's series. It included material similar to that on The Bob McAllister Show with the added attractions of game shows that he selected children in the audience to participate in. These included twisting the tops off cans to see whether snakes or a bouquet of artificial flowers sprung out; the child who opened the sole can with the bouquet won the grand prize. Bob gave each snake-receiver a consolation prize - usually a toy or a board game - for answering a trivia question correctly. The musical theme of McAllister's Wonderama was an orchestral arrangement of the song "I Ain't Down Yet" from Meredith Willson's Broadway musical The Unsinkable Molly Brown. Audience children typically waved their arms in a diagonal criss-cross fashion over their heads to the beat of the music when it opened and closed each show. McAllister also hosted reproduced Wonderama shows at various locations, including the Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park in Jackson Township, New Jersey, and the Harvard Club of New York. He also found the time to host a few children's television specials for WNEW-TV during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The weekday afternoon version of Wonderama was not as successful as the original Sunday afternoon/Sunday morning format and was dropped on Friday, August 21, 1970, returning to its Sunday morning schedule where it continued until Sunday morning, December 25, 1977. Characters McAllister played on Wonderama and The Bob McAllister Show included: The Crazy Magician, whose attempts at magic usually ended in disaster; Prof. Fingelheimer, a quirky German-accented inventor who sang a nonsensical but catchy song before showing off his latest contraption, a song that resembled the Boodleheimer song by Stuart Hample, originally published in The Silly Book in 1961.; A janitor who furnished a can of "instant" whatever and used it to facilitate chores; Mike Fury, a superhero who boasted about his supernatural deeds of daring-do and created "explosions" by taking a bite of his "Super Onion" and exhaling forcefully, and he also taught children healthy hygienic habits (tooth-brushing, washing, nose-blowing, etc.) by setting a good example for them as "a Goody."; Zip Code, a Beatnik folk singer; Thurman, a laid-back farm boy; Salamander Dilly, a spoof on the surrealist painter Salvador Dali, an artist who stroked a brush across a blank canvas, creating an image through a "blue screen" technique, a superimposed video special effect that gradually "wiped" the image onto the canvas along with the path of the brush; and Seymore the Snake, a puppet providing humorous commentary about the show's zany goings-on. In 1973, McAllister hosted a TV special, Herbie Day at Disneyland, which exhibited Herbie the Love Bug of Walt Disney Pictures fame before an excited crowd at the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California. This special was produced in conjunction with the personified Volkswagen Beetle's latest feature film, Herbie Rides Again. In 1975, Monty Hall, impressed by McAllister, flew him out to Los Angeles to host a pilot for a new ABC game show called Carnival. By all accounts, the pilot was well-done, but it was never picked up as a series. He was forced to leave Wonderama following the series' Christmas Day 1977 broadcast, reputed to have been the result of his opposition to the violent nature of some of the commercials shown during the show's broadcast. In the fall of 1978, McAllister briefly returned to children's television as the host/performer and interviewer of ABC TV's Kids Are People Too, a show that took its name from the title of McAllister's closing Wonderama theme. However, the show that he was hired to emcee was aimed at teens, not children, and this led to creative disputes with the producers and network executives. In November 1978, Bob McAllister was fired from Kids Are People Too! and he was replaced by Michael Young and later Randy Hamilton as the program's host. McAllister would spend the remainder of the 1970s and 80s performing at corporate banquets and picnics and, for a time, served as co-owner of a roller skating rink at THE MALL in New Rochelle, New York. He tried a return to children's television with an in-school educational program called Tuned In, produced by WNET for PBS in the early 1980s. He played the teacher, Mr. Graff, who involved his pupils in television production. Bob received recognition in the magic field with numerous awards, including the prestigious "Magician of the Year" award from the Society of American Magicians. He died on July 21, 1998 of lung cancer at the age of 63.

January 11, 1928) is #born in Higher Bockhampton (then Upper Bockhampton), a hamlet in the parish of Stinsford to the east of Dorchester in Dorset, England. A Victorian realist in the tradition of George Eliot, Thomas Hardy he was influenced both in his novels and in his poetry by Romanticism, including the poetry of William Wordsworth. He was highly critical of much in Victorian society, especially on the declining status of rural people in Britain, such as those from his native South West England. While Hardy wrote poetry throughout his life and regarded himself primarily as a poet, his first collection was not published until 1898. Initially, he gained fame as the author of novels such as Far from the Madding Crowd (1874), The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886), Tess of the d'Urbervilles (1891), and Jude the Obscure (1895). During his lifetime, Hardy's poetry was acclaimed by younger poets (particularly the Georgians) who viewed him as a mentor. After his death his poems were lauded by Ezra Pound, W. H. Auden and Philip Larkin. Many of his novels concern tragic characters struggling against their passions and social circumstances, and they are often set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex; initially based on the medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom, Hardy's Wessex eventually came to include the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Devon, Hampshire and much of Berkshire, in southwest and south central England. Two of his novels, Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Far from the Madding Crowd, were listed in the top 50 on the BBC's survey The Big Read. Hardy was horrified by the destruction caused by the First World War, pondering that "I do not think a world in which such fiendishness is possible to be worth the saving" and "better to let western 'civilization' perish, and let the black and yellow races have a chance." He wrote to John Galsworthy that "the exchange of international thought is the only possible salvation for the world." Thomas Hardy died at his self-designed and built home, Max Gate, in Dorchester, Dorset, England, just after 9 pm of "cardiac syncope" (loss of blood flow), with "old age" given as a contributory factor, having fallen ill with Pleurisy in December 1927. His funeral was on January 16 at Westminster Abbey, and it proved a controversial occasion because Hardy had wished for his body to be interred at Stinsford in the same grave as his first wife, Emma. His family and friends concurred; however, his executor, Sir Sydney Carlyle Cockerell, insisted that he be placed in the abbey's famous Poets' Corner. A compromise was reached whereby his heart was buried at Stinsford with Emma, and his ashes in Poets' Corner. Hardy's estate at death was valued at 95,418 Pounds Sterling (equivalent to 5.8M Pounds Sterling in 2019).

June 2, 1966: Lunar Landings: Surveyor Program: Surveyor 1 lands in Oceanus Procellarum on the Moon, becoming the first U.S. spacecraft to soft-land on another world. Surveyor 1 was the first lunar soft-lander in the uncrewed Surveyor program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA, United States). This lunar soft-lander gathered data about the lunar surface that would be needed for the crewed Apollo Moon landings that began in 1969. The successful soft landing of Surveyor 1 on the Ocean of Storms was the first by an American space probe on any extraterrestrial body, occurring on the first attempt and just four months after the first Moon landing by the Soviet Union's Luna 9 probe. Surveyor 1 was launched May 30, 1966, from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at Cape Canaveral, Florida, and it landed on the Moon on June 2, 1966. Surveyor 1 transmitted 11,237 still photos of the lunar surface to the Earth by using a television camera and a sophisticated radio-telemetry system. The Surveyor program was managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in Los Angeles County, California, but the Surveyor space probe was designed by Gary Mizuhara of EOS (Electrical Optical Systems, Covina, Ca.) and built by the Hughes Aircraft Company in El Segundo, California.

June 2, 1962: Nuclear Weapons Testing: Operation Fishbowl: Bluegill Test: In anticipation of the 1963 Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the United States concludes Operation Fishbowl, its last above-ground nuclear weapons testing series, with the Bluegill Test, launched on a Thor missile just after midnight from Johnston Island Air Force Base on the Johnston Atoll several hundred kilometers southwest of Hawaii. Although the Thor missile appeared to be on a normal trajectory, the radar tracking system lost track of the missile. Because of the large number of ships and aircraft in the area, there was no way to predict if the missile was on a safe trajectory, so the range safety officers ordered the missile with its warhead to be destroyed. No nuclear detonation occurred and no data were obtained, but subsequent investigation found that the Thor was actually following the proper flight trajectory. Operation Fishbowl was a series of high-altitude nuclear tests in 1962 that were carried out by the United States as a part of the larger Operation Dominic nuclear test program, a series of 31 quickly-scheduled nuclear test explosions conducted in 1962 by the United States in the Pacific in order to respond to the Soviet resumption of testing after the tacit 1958-1961 test moratorium.

June 2, 1805: The Napoleonic Wars: The Battle of Diamond Rock: A Franco-Spanish fleet recaptures Diamond Rock, a 574 foot basalt island located next to Fort-de-France in Martinique, from the British. On May 31, French and Spanish forces began the assault. It was an attempt by Franco-Spanish force despatched under Captain Julien Cosmao to retake Diamond Rock, at the entrance to the bay leading to Fort-de-France, from the British forces that had occupied it over a year before. The French in Martinique had been unable to oust the defenders from the strategically important rock, and the British garrison was able to control access to Fort-de-France Bay, firing on ships attempting to enter it with guns they had placed on the cliffs. The arrival of a large combined Franco-Spanish fleet in May changed the strategic situation. The French commander, Pierre de Villeneuve, had vague orders to attack British possessions in the Caribbean, but instead waited at Martinique for clearer instructions. He was finally persuaded to authorise an assault on the British position, and a Franco-Spanish flotilla was despatched to storm the rock. Already short of water, the defenders held on in the summit for several days, while the French, who had neglected to bring scaling ladders, could make little headway. The British, short of both water and ammunition, eventually negotiated the surrender of the rock after several days under fire. As Diamond Rock was legally considered a Royal Navy vessel, and commander James Wilkes Maurice was legally "captain" of it, after repatriation, he was tried by court-martial (as the law dictated in any case where a captain loses his ship, regardless of the cause), but was honourably acquitted.

June 2, 1774: The Intolerable Acts: The Quartering Act is enacted, allowing a governor in colonial America to house British soldiers in uninhabited houses, outhouses, barns, or other buildings if suitable quarters are not provided. The Quartering Act is a name given to two or more Acts of British Parliament requiring local governments of the American colonies to provide the British soldiers with housing and food. Each of the Quartering Acts was an amendment to the Mutiny Act and required annual renewal by Parliament. They were originally intended as a response to issues that arose during the French and Indian War and soon became a source of tensions between the inhabitants of the Thirteen Colonies and the government in London, England. These tensions would later lead toward the American Revolution. The Intolerable Acts was the term invented by 19th century historians to refer to a series of punitive laws passed by the British Parliament in 1774 after the Boston Tea Party. The laws were meant to punish the Massachusetts colonists for their defiance in the Boston Tea Party protest in reaction to changes in taxation by the British to the detriment of colonial goods. In Great Britain, these laws were referred to as the Coercive Acts. The acts took away self-governance and historic rights of Massachusetts, triggering outrage and resistance in the Thirteen Colonies. They were key developments in the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War in 1775. Four of the acts were issued in direct response to the Boston Tea Party of December 16, 1773. The British Parliament hoped these punitive measures would, by making an example of Massachusetts, reverse the trend of colonial resistance to parliamentary authority that had begun with the 1764 Sugar Act. A fifth act, the Quebec Act, enlarged the boundaries of what was then the Province of Quebec and instituted reforms generally favorable to the French Catholic inhabitants of the region; although unrelated to the other four Acts, it was passed in the same legislative session and seen by the colonists as one of the Intolerable Acts. The Patriots viewed the acts as an arbitrary violation of the rights of Massachusetts, and in September 1774 they organized the First Continental Congress to coordinate a protest. As tensions escalated, the American Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, leading in July 1776 to the declaration of an independent United States of America.

Wireless telegraphy is the transmission of telegraphy signals from one point to another by means of an electromagnetic, electrostatic or magnetic field, or by electrical current through the earth or water. The term is used synonymously for radio communication systems, also called radiotelegraphy, which transmit telegraph signals by radio waves. When the term originated in the late 19th century it also applied to other types of experimental wireless telegraph communication technologies, such as conduction and induction telegraphy. Radio telegraphy often used manually-sent Morse code; radioteletype (RTTY) always uses mechanically generated and recorded characters.

June 2, 1979: Pope Saint John Paul II starts his first official visit to his native Poland, becoming the first Pope to visit a Communist country. Ecstatic crowds constantly surrounded him. This first papal trip to Poland uplifted the nation's spirit and sparked the formation of the Solidarity movement in 1980, which later brought freedom and human rights to his troubled homeland. Poland's Communist leaders intended to use the pope's visit to show the people that although the pope was Polish it did not alter their capacity to govern, oppress, and distribute the goods of society. They also hoped that if the pope abided by the rules they set, that the Polish people would see his example and follow them as well. If the pope's visit inspired a riot, the Communist leaders of Poland were prepared to crush the uprising and blame the suffering on the pope. According to historican Angelo M. Codevilla, "The pope won that struggle by transcending politics. His was what Joseph Nye calls 'soft power' - the power of attraction and repulsion. He began with an enormous advantage, and exploited it to the utmost: He headed the one institution that stood for the polar opposite of the Communist way of life that the Polish people hated. He was a Pole, but beyond the regime's reach. By identifying with him, Poles would have the chance to cleanse themselves of the compromises they had to make to live under the regime. And so they came to him by the millions. They listened. He told them to be good, not to compromise themselves, to stick by one another, to be fearless, and that God is the only source of goodness, the only standard of conduct. 'Be not afraid,' he said. Millions shouted in response, 'We want God! We want God! We want God!' The regime cowered. Had the Pope chosen to turn his soft power into the hard variety, the regime might have been drowned in blood. Instead, the Pope simply led the Polish people to desert their rulers by affirming solidarity with one another. The Communists managed to hold on as despots a decade longer. But as political leaders, they were finished. Visiting his native Poland in 1979, Pope John Paul II struck what turned out to be a mortal blow to its Communist regime, to the Soviet Empire, [and] ultimately to Communism." According to John Lewis Gaddis, one of the most influential historians of the Cold War, the trip led to the formation of Solidarity and would begin the process of Communism's demise in Eastern Europe: When Pope John Paul II kissed the ground at the Warsaw airport he began the process by which Communism in Poland-and ultimately elsewhere in Europe-would come to an end. On later trips to Poland, he gave tacit support to the Solidarity organisation. These visits reinforced this message and contributed to the collapse of East European Communism that took place between 1989/1990 with the reintroduction of democracy in Poland, and which then spread through Eastern Europe (1990-1991) and South-Eastern Europe (1990-1992).

June 2, 455: The Fall Of The Western Roman Empire: The Sack Of Rome (455) (June 2-16, 455): The Vandals enter Rome and plunder the city for two weeks. The Sack of 455 was the third of four ancient sacks of Rome. It was conducted by the Vandals, a Roman-era Germanic people who first appear in written records as inhabiting present-day southern Poland, who were at the time at war with Petronius Maximus, the usurping Western Roman Emperor for two and a half months who as a wealthy senator and a prominent aristocrat was instrumental in the murders of the Western Roman Magister Militum (Latin: Master of the Soldiers, a top-level military command used in the later Roman Empire), Flavius Aetius, and the Western Roman Emperor, Valentinian III. Maximus secured the throne the day after Valentinian's death by ensuring the backing of the senate and by bribing the palace officials. He strengthened his position by forcing Valentinian's widow, Licinia Eudoxia, to marry him, and by forcing Valentinian's daughter, Eudocia, to marry his son, to strengthen his bond with the Theodosian dynasty. He cancelled the betrothal of his new wife's daughter to the son of the Vandal king Genseric. The murder, the cancellation of Genseric's betrothal and both forced marriages infuriated Eudoxia, Eudocia and Genseric alike, and so Eudoxia turned to aid from the Vandals to remove Maximus from his undeserved throne. The overture was favorably met, because Maximus' revolution was damaging to Genseric's ambitions. The king of the Vandals claimed that the broken betrothal between Huneric and Eudocia invalidated his peace treaty with Valentinian, and he set sail with his fleet to attack Rome, landing at Ostia at the mouth of the Tiber. Before approaching the city, the Vandals knocked down all of the city's aqueducts. At the sight of the approaching Vandals, Maximus. having failed to obtain troops from the Visigoths (an early Germanic people who along with the Ostrogoths constituted the two major political entities of the Goths within the Roman Empire in Late Antiquity, or what is known as the Migration Period), along with his soldiers, tried to flee the city, but he was spotted and killed by a Roman mob outside the city, possibly together with his son Palladius. Upon the Vandal arrival, according to the chronicler Prosper of Aquitaine, Pope Leo I requested that Genseric not destroy the ancient city nor murder its inhabitants. Genseric agreed and the gates of Rome were thrown open to him and his men. While Genseric kept his promise not to burn the city and slaughter its inhabitants, he did carry some off to be slaves, and during that time Genseric managed to capture Empress Licinia Eudoxia, Valentinian's widow, and her daughters, Eudocia and Placidia as they tried to escape. Eudoxia and her children were the last of Rome's imperial family. Eudocia would later marry Huneric. It is accepted that Genseric looted great amounts of treasure from the city, damaging objects of cultural significance such as the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus by stripping away the gilt bronze roof tiles. There is, however, some debate over the severity of the Vandal sack. The sack of 455 is generally seen as being more thorough than the Visigothic sack of 410 because the Vandals plundered Rome for fourteen days whereas the Visigoths spent only three days in the city. A cause of significant controversy is the claim that the sack was relatively "clean", in that there was little murder and violence, and the Vandals did not burn the buildings of the city. This interpretation seems to stem from Prosper's claim that Pope Leo I managed to persuade Genseric to refrain from violence. However, Victor of Vita records that a number of shiploads of captives arrived in Africa from Rome, with the purpose of being sold into slavery. Similarly, the Byzantine historian Procopius reports that a church was burned down. Some modern historians like John Henry Haaren stated that temples, public buildings, private houses and even the emperor's palace were sacked. Besides taking many Romans as slaves, the Vandals also committed other depredations like taking immense quantities of gold, silver, jewels and furniture, destroying works of art, and killing a number of citizens.

June 2, 1919: The 1919 United States Anarchist Bombings: Anarchists simultaneously set off bombs in eight separate U.S. cities by anarchist followers of Luigi Galleani. These bombings, part of a larger bombing campaign from April through June 1919, led to the First Red Scare, the Red Scare of 1919-20, a period during the early 20th-century history of the United States marked by a widespread fear of Bolshevism and anarchism, due to real and imagined events; real events included those such as the Russian Revolution and anarchist bombings. At its height in 1919-1920, concerns over the effects of radical political agitation in American society and the alleged spread of communism and anarchism in the American labor movement fueled a general sense of concern, and to a certain extent, paranoia. On the evening of June 2, 1919, Galleanists managed to detonate eight large bombs nearly simultaneously in eight U.S. cities. These bombs were much larger than those sent in April, using up to 25 pounds of dynamite, and all were wrapped or packaged with heavy metal slugs designed to act as shrapnel. Addressees included government officials who had endorsed anti-sedition laws and deportation of immigrants suspected of crimes or associated with illegal movements, as well as judges who had sentenced anarchists to prison. The homes of Mayor Harry L. Davis of Cleveland; Pittsburgh's Federal Judge W.H.S. Thompson; Immigration Chief W.W. Sibray; Massachusetts State Representative Leland Powers; Judge Charles C. Nott of New York; and Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer, already the recipient of a mail bomb in April, were attacked in the new wave of violence. None of the targeted men were killed, but one bomb took the life of New York City night watchman William Boehner and the bomb intended for Attorney General Palmer's home prematurely exploded and killed Carlo Valdinoci, who was a former editor of the Galleanist publication Cronaca Sovversiva and close associate of Galleani. Though not seriously injured, Palmer and his family were shaken by the blast, and the house itself was largely demolished. Two near-casualties of the same bomb were Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor, then living across the street from Palmer. They had walked past the house just minutes before the explosion, and their residence was close enough that one of the bomber's body parts landed on their doorstep. Each of the bombs was delivered with several copies of a pink flyer, titled "Plain Words," that read: "War, Class war, and you were the first to wage it under the cover of the powerful institutions you call order, in the darkness of your laws. There will have to be bloodshed; we will not dodge; there will have to be murder: we will kill, because it is necessary; there will have to be destruction; we will destroy to rid the world of your tyrannical institutions.". The flyer was later traced to a printing shop operated by two anarchists - Andrea Salsedo, a typesetter and Roberto Elia, a compositor - who were both Galleanists according to the later memoirs of other members. Salsedo committed suicide, and Elia refused an offer to cancel deportation proceedings if he would testify about his role in the Galleanist organization. Unable to secure enough evidence for criminal trials, authorities continued to use the Anarchist Exclusion Act and related statutes to deport known Galleanists. Luigi Galleani (August 12, 1861 - November 4, 1931) was an Italian anarchist active in the United States from 1901 to 1919, viewed by historians as an insurrectionary anarchist (a revolutionary theory, practice and tendency within the anarchist movement that emphasizes insurrection within anarchist practice). He is best known for his enthusiastic advocacy of "propaganda of the deed", i.e. the use of violence to eliminate tyrants and oppressors and to act as a catalyst to the overthrow of existing government institutions. From 1914 to 1932, Galleani's followers in the United States (known as i Galleanisti), carried out a series of bombings and assassination attempts against institutions and persons they viewed as class enemies. After Galleani was deported from the United States to Italy in June 1919, his colleagues are alleged to have carried out the Wall Street bombing of 1920, which resulted in the deaths of 38 people.

June 2, 1947: #BOTD: Mark Rudd, political organizer, mathematics instructor, anti-war activist and counterculture icon most well known for his involvement with the 1968 Columbia University Protests and with the Weather Underground, is #born Mark William Rudd in Irvington, New Jersey into the Jewish family of Polish immigrant Jacob Shmuel Rudnitsky and Bertha Bass, whose parents were Lithuanian immigrants. Mark Rudd became a member of the Columbia University chapter of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in 1963. By 1968, he had emerged as a leader for Columbia's SDS chapter. During the 1968 Columbia University Protests, he served as spokesperson for dissident students protesting a variety of issues, most notably the Vietnam War. As the war escalated, Mark Rudd worked with other youth movement leaders to take SDS in a more militant direction. When the general membership of SDS refused to go in a more violent and pro-Communist direction, Rudd together with some other prominent SDS members formed a radical, violence-oriented organization, referring to themselves collectively as "Weatherman" after the lyrics from a famous Bob Dylan song. Rudd went "underground" in 1970, hiding from law enforcement following the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion that killed three of his Weather Underground peers. He surrendered to authorities in 1977, serving a short jail sentence. After serving as a mathematics instructor at Central New Mexico Community College, he is now retired in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and has since expressed some regret for advocating and using violence. The Doonesbury comic strip by American cartoonist Garry Trudeau features a character inspired by Rudd, Mark Slackmeyer, who first appeared in the strip during the 1968 Columbia University Protests. In the comic strip, Slackmeyer starts out as a radical at mythical Walden College, and leads several peace rallies (in his first appearance, he referred to himself as "'Megaphone' Mark Slackmeyer"). Mark seized the office of Walden's President King twice (he considers the first time a failure as President King was far too cooperative), and in 1972 took a cross-country trip with Michael Doonesbury to Washington, and eventually to that year's Republican National Convention in Miami, Florida.

Come along as we celebrate a global icon with an unmistakable design that has brought smiles to the faces of generations-the Volkswagen Bus. The Volkswagen Type 2, better known as simply the Volkswagen Bus (VW Bus) and popularly as The Volkswagen Van, is an automotive icon that continues to captivate people from around the globe. Introduced in 1950, it has become a vehicular symbol of a counterculture movement. The original Volkswagen Bus design was specifically for commercial use. However, it would quickly adapt to a family vehicle because of its ability to transport people comfortably. Interestingly, the bus has also been used for a wide variety of other applications, including campers, ambulances, and even a mobile recording studio. In fact, the most famous and well-known association for the VW Bus may be its association with the 1960s era. This is especially true after the bus became a cultural icon for those in attendance to the Woodstock Music & Arts Festival in 1969.

June 2, 1098: The First Crusade: The First Siege Of Antioch ends as Crusader forces take the city; the second siege began five days later. The Siege of Antioch took place during the First Crusade in 1097 and 1098. The first siege, by the crusaders against the Muslim-held city, lasted from 21 October 1097 to 2 June 1098. Antioch lay in a strategic location on the crusaders' route to Palestine. Supplies, reinforcements and retreat could all be controlled by the city. Anticipating that it would be attacked, the Muslim governor of the city, Yaghi-Siyan, began stockpiling food and sending requests for help. The Byzantine walls surrounding the city presented a formidable obstacle to its capture, but the leaders of the crusade felt compelled to besiege Antioch anyway. The crusaders arrived outside the city on 21 October and began the siege. The garrison sortied unsuccessfully on 29 December. After stripping the surrounding area of food, the crusaders were forced to look farther afield for supplies, opening themselves to ambush. On the 31 December, a force of 20,000 crusaders encountered a relief army led by Duqaq of Damascus heading to Antioch and defeated them. As the siege went on, supplies dwindled and in early 1098 one in seven of the crusaders was dying from starvation, and people began deserting. A second relief force, this time under the command of Ridwan of Aleppo, advanced towards Antioch, arriving on 9 February. Like the army of Duqaq before, it was defeated. Antioch was captured on 3 June, although the citadel remained in the hands of the Muslim defenders. Kerbogha began the second siege, against the crusaders who had occupied Antioch, which lasted from 7 June to 28 June 1098. The second siege ended when the crusaders exited the city to engage Kerbogha's army in battle and succeeded in defeating them. On seeing the Muslim army routed, the defenders remaining in the citadel surrendered.

Gehrig's had just set the record for the most consecutive games played (2,130, a record that stood for 56 years and was long considered unbreakable until surpassed by Cal Ripken Jr., in 1995) which ended on May 2, 1939, when he voluntarily took himself out of the lineup, stunning both players and fans, after his performance on the field became hampered by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, an incurable neuromuscular illness now commonly referred to in North America as "Lou Gehrig's Disease". The disease forced him to retire at age 36, and was the cause of his death two years later. The pathos of his farewell from baseball was capped off by his iconic 1939 "Luckiest Man on the Face of the Earth" speech at Yankee Stadium. In 1969 the Baseball Writers' Association of America voted Gehrig the greatest first baseman of all time, and he was the leading vote-getter on the MLB All-Century Team chosen by fans in 1999. A monument in Gehrig's honor, originally dedicated by the Yankees in 1941, currently resides in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium. The Lou Gehrig Memorial Award is given annually to the MLB player who best exhibits Gehrig's integrity and character. Henry Louis Gehrig was born Heinrich Ludwig Gehrig at 1994 Second Avenue (according to his birth certificate) in the Yorkville neighborhood of Manhattan. Gehrig was renowned for his prowess as a hitter and for his durability, which earned him his nickname "The Iron Horse." He was an All-Star seven consecutive times, a Triple Crown winner once, an American League (AL) Most Valuable Player twice, and a member of six World Series champion teams. He had a career .340 batting average, .632 slugging average, and a .447 on base average. He hit 493 home runs and had 1,995 runs batted in (RBI). He still has the highest ratio of runs scored plus runs batted in per 100 plate appearances (35.08) and per 100 games (156.7) among Hall of Fame players. In 1939, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame and was the first MLB player to have his uniform number (4) retired by a team. A native of New York City and a student at Columbia University, Gehrig signed with the Yankees in 1923. He set several major-league records during his career, including the most consecutive games played (2,130) and the most career grand slams (23, since broken by Alex Rodriguez).

June 2, 1692: The Salem Witch Trials: Bridget Bishop is the first person to go to trial in the Salem witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts; she was found guilty and later hanged. The Salem Witch Trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693. The trials resulted in the executions of twenty people, fourteen of them women, and all but one by hanging. Five others (including two infant children) died in prison. The episode is one of Colonial America's most notorious cases of mass hysteria. The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller, written as an allegory for McCarthyism, comparing McCarthyism to a witch-hunt, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists.

June 2, 2001: #DOTD: #RIP: Imogene Coca, American vaudeville, cabaret, film, theater and television actress, comedian, singer and voice actress (b. November 18, 1908) #dies at her home in Westport, Connecticut, aged 92, from natural causes incidental to Alzheimer's disease. She was cremated and her ashes scattered.She was born Emogeane Coca in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Joseph Fernandez Coca, a violinist and vaudeville orchestra conductor and Sadie Brady, a dancer and magician's assistant. Imogene Coca was a comic actress best known for her role opposite Sid Caesar on Your Show of Shows. Starting out in vaudeville as a child acrobat, she studied ballet and wished to have a serious career in music and dance, graduating to decades of stage musical revues, cabaret and summer stock. In her 40s, she began a celebrated career as a comedian on television, starring in six series and guest starring on successful television programs from the 1940s to the 1990s. She was nominated for five Emmy Awards for Your Show of Shows, winning Best Actress in 1951 and singled out for a Peabody Award for excellence in broadcasting in 1953. Coca was also nominated for a Tony Award in 1978 for On the Twentieth Century and received a sixth Emmy nomination at the age of 80 for an episode of Moonlighting. She possessed a rubbery face capable of the broadest expressions; Life magazine compared her to Beatrice Lillie and Charlie Chaplin and described her characterizations as taking "people or situations suspended in their own precarious balance between dignity and absurdity, and push(ing) them over the cliff with one single, pointed gesture". The magazine noted a "particularly high-brow critic" as observing, "The trouble with most comedians who try to do satire is that they are essentially brash, noisy and indelicate people who have to use a sledge hammer to smash a butterfly. Miss Coca, on the other hand, is the timid woman who, when aroused, can beat a tiger to death with a feather." Aside from vaudeville, cabaret, film, theater and television, she voiced children's cartoons and was even featured in the 1984 MTV music video "Bag Lady" by the band EBN-OZN, ultimately working well into her 80s. In a 1999 interview, Robert Ozn said during the shoot she was required to sit on the sidewalk in snow for hours during a blizzard with 15 degree temperatures. "While the rest of us 20-somethings were moaning about the weather, warming ourselves by a heater, this little 75-year-old lady never once complained - put us all to shame. She was the most professional artist I've ever worked with." On Sale @ 15% Off Discount Till Midnight PT! https://store.earthstation1.com/ten-from-your-show-of-shows-tv-show-movie-dvd.html

June 2: National First Ladies Day: National First Ladies Day on June 2nd commemorates the very first First Lady of the United States and all those who followed in her footsteps. It's a day to recognize the role the first ladies have played in molding our nation. Since 1789, a first lady has accompanied every president. Starting with Martha Washington, who was born on June 2, 1731, first ladies have helped set a tone in the highest office of the land. Even the country's only bachelor president, James Buchannan, required someone to act as hostess. Harriet Lane, the president's niece, stepped into the role of the first lady. She presented a well-ordered White House with tact and grace. Lane isn't the only relative to serve in the role of the first lady. Several other presidents held office as widowers requiring someone to step into the role as a de facto first lady, too. While they aren't elected, many of them campaign alongside their spouse. Others have served as elected or appointed officials in many different capacities. First ladies have been teachers, Girl Scouts, educated, and adventurous. To observe National First Ladies Day, learn more about the women who've set tradition, supported the president, and become role models for many. Read memoirs, tour museums, watch documentaries about the first ladies. Have you met a first lady or two? Share your experiences or how you think the first lady role will change over time. Use #FirstLadiesDay to share on social media. On Sale @ 15% Off Discount Till Midnight PT! https://store.earthstation1.com/the-eleanor-roosevelt-story-dvd-1965-macleish-seva1965.html

June 2, 1953: Coronations: The Coronation Of Queen Elizabeth II: Elizabeth II is crowned Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Her Other Realms and Territories and Head of the Commonwealth, the first major international event to be televised. The coronation of Queen Elizabeth II as sovereign of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon took place on 2 June 1953, at Westminster Abbey. Elizabeth ascended the throne at the age of 25, upon the death of her father, King George VI, on 6 February 1952, and was proclaimed queen by her various privy and executive councils shortly afterwards. The coronation took place more than a year later because of the tradition that holding such a festival is inappropriate during the period of mourning that follows the death of a monarch and also on account of the need to make preparations for the ceremony. During the service, she took and subscribed an oath to, among other things, govern the peoples according to their respective laws and customs, was anointed with holy oil, presented and invested with regalia, and crowned. Celebrations took place across the Commonwealth realms and a commemorative medal was issued. It was the first British coronation to be televised. It was the fourth and last British coronation of the 20th century.
