This Day in History, 1942

This one I did not get from This Day in History; it's an important local Boston event, however.

On November 28, 1942, the Cocoanut Grove nightclub fire took the lives of 492 people.

The Boston Globe's archives have an excellent article about the event from the 50th anniversary here:
