This Week In History
Seems like only yesterday...
March 18, 1974 – Five month old Arab oil embargo against the U.S. was lifted. The
embargo was a result of America's support of Israel during the Yom Kipper War of 1973
March 19, 2003 – The U.S.launched an attack against Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein.
March 20, 1995 – A nerve gas attack occurred on the Tokyo subway system during rush
hour resulting in 12 persons killed and 5,000 injured
March 21, 1918 – The Second Battle of the Somme began as German General Erich von
Ludendoff launched an all out drive in an attempt to win the war. The offensive lasted 16
days gaining the Germans 35 miles of territory.
March 22, 1972 – The Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed by
the U.S. Senate and sent to the states for ratification. While 22 states quickly ratified the
amendment, the amendment failed by 3 states before the (extended) June 1982
deadline. To become an amendment to the constitution, 38 states needed to ratify it.
March 23, 1775 – Patrick Henry ignited the American Revolution with a speech before the
Virginia convention in Richmond stating “I know not what course others may take; but as
for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”
March 24, 1989 – One of the largest oil spills in U.S. history occurred as the oil tanker
Exxon Valdez ran aground in the Prince William Sound off Alaska, resulting in 11 million
gallons of oil leaking into the natural habitat over a stretch of 45 miles.
