… independence day and pibbur's fourth day in Cambridge-by-Boston. (Boston in the US, that is).

On this very day:

768 – Death of Pippin, the hobbit.

1180 - Manuel Komnenos, the last Byzantine emperor dies. Contrary to your average Roman emperor he stayed in business for much longer than a year (37 years actually). 12th century. Was Corwin around then?

1674 - The Dutch surenders New-York-wannabe New Amsterdam to rulers-of-the-us-wannabes England.

1830 - Belgium comes into being. For a short period of time they actually had a government.

1852 - The first steampowered airship flew over the hills and far away from Paris.

1990 - A Great White spotted on saturn.

2005 - Hurricane Rita makes landfall in the United States, devastating Beaumont and moving him to Kingsmouth.
