In world history on this day in 585 BC a solar eclipse interrupted a battle outside Sardis in western Turkey between Medes and Lydians.
The battle ended in a draw. In 1805 Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned in Milan, Italy. In 1953 'Melody', the first animated 3-D cartoon in Technicolor, premiered. In 1961 Amnesty International, a human rights organization, was founded.
Today is the birthday of Irish poet, singer, songwriter, and entertainer, Thomas Moore. Born in 1779, he wrote "Humility, that low, sweet root, from which all heavenly virtues shoot" and "You may break, you may shatter the vase, if you will, But the scent of the roses will hang round it still."
