Today in history

Today in history:

1587: Mary, Queen of Scots is beheaded in Fotheringhay Castle for her alleged part in the conspiracy to usurp Elizabeth I.

1861: Delegates from seceded states adopt a provisional Confederate Constitution.

1952: Elizabeth becomes Queen of England after her father, King George VI, dies.

    Anyhow, it sounds like a bad day in history, unless you are Elizabeth in 1952. :)
