On this day in 1920, professional football was born. The new league was called the American Professional Football Association – its first president was the legendary Jim Thorpe.
On this day in 1938, baseball great Lou Gehrig hit his 23rd career grand slam. That record still stands today.
And on this day in 1940, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill made the fourth of his famous World War II speeches. In this particular speech he noted, “Never was so much owed by so many to so few”.
