This Day In History

I'm always interested in what happened on this day in history, it being my birthday and all. Let's hit a few of the highlights:

1801: The District of Columbia was placed under Congressional jurisdiction
1860: Abraham Lincoln gives a speech condemning slavery at Cooper Union in New YorkCity
1897: Britain recongnizes US authority over the western hemisphere
1922: The Supreme Court unanimously declares the 19th amendment constitutional, defending women's right to vote
1933: The German Parliamentary building, the Reichstag, catches fire, giving the Nazis an excuse to suspend civil liberties
1973: The American Indian Movement begins its occupation of Wounded Knee
1991: The first Gulf War is declared officially over.
1993: The World Trade Center is shut down indefinitely, as investigators begin looking into the February 26 bombing

There's more of course.

I share my birthday with John Steinbeck, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Ralph Nader, Elizabeth Taylor, and Chelsea Clinton, among others.

1922: The Supreme Court unanimously declares the 19th amendment constitutional, defending women's right to vote

Isn't an amendment to the constitution, by definition, constitutional?

Oh, and happy birthday.
I don't know much about the case; all I know is what I found in "This Day in History" listings.

And thank you.
