It's April 19th

If you don't know the significance of the date today, here is a little reminder:

#1 April 19th 1775 Battle of Concord Green and Lexington (the Shot Heard 'Round the World)

#2 April 19th 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (The Jews in the ghetto resist the German Army for 27 days, longer than either the French or Polish armies resisted...)

#3 April 19th 1993 Burning of Waco's Branch Davidian Church (The US Government, led by Attorney General Janet Reno, decides to use gas grenades that are known to incinerate wood on a wooden structure)

#4 April 19th 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing (Someone, purportedly Timothy McVeigh, blows up the Edward R. Murrah building in OKC, killing 168...Mysteriously, the ATF and FBI offices in the building were vacant that morning)

Some quite pivotal events on April 19th...
