Also on this day in history

Yes, I started blogging 10 years ago today, but lots of other stuff also happened on this date:

George A. Custer and the 7th Cavalry had a bad day at the hands of Sitting Bull in 1876.

The White Slaver Traffic Act was signed into law in 1912.  It was basically designed to enforce segregation, prohibiting black men from crossing state borders with white women.

The Korean War broke out in 1950 as forces from the North invaded the south.  Maybe that will get wrapped up soon.

The US Supreme Court ruled in 1981 that an all male draft was constitutional.
