1852Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin is published.

1854 – The Republican Party of the United States is organized in Ripon, Wisconsin.

1916Albert Einstein publishes his general theory of relativity.

The above are all things I remember from school.

1933Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler ordered the creation of Dachau Concentration Camp as Chief of Police of Munich and appointed Theodor Eicke as the camp commandant. (I knew this because I visited Dachau when I was 10 years old. It was an experience that changed my life)

Things I remember:
1985Libby Riddles becomes the first woman to win the 1,135-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

1990Ferdinand Marcos's widow, Imelda Marcos, goes on trial for bribery, embezzlement, and racketeering. (Who can forget all her shoes!!)

20032003 invasion of Iraq: In the early hours of the morning, the United States and three other countries begin military operations in Iraq.

Did you really visit Dachau? OMG! That would be life changing! I know I would remember every single detail even years later.

Yes I did. It was truly the moment in my life that I knew who I was and who I NEVER wanted to be.
In 1982 you could still smell the lingering order of the gas in the chambers. The museum with so many items of the prisoners personal effects was heartbreaking.

Wow. That is just mind boggling to me.  To be that close to such negative history would just about make me go stir crazy even as a child.
