April 15th in History

We live in a time where our days fly by like the speed of lightening and we rarely get the chance to appreciate what has happened each day in history.  We wanted to take this opportunity to allow a minute out of our busy and hectic day to get a glimpse as to what has happened in history over the past. Enjoy!
