    I tried everything but that. Now that you told me I see it works this way as well.

    June 6, 1944; the Allied Forces stage an amphibious landing on the coast of Normandy. This was called D-Day and marked the beginning of the end for the Axis, as the Allied forces began their march to Berlin. Less than a year later, the German Forces surrendered on the 7th of May, 1945.

    I've got that movie in my collection. Maybe it's time to watch it again.

    After reading your first post here today, I was thinking of that, too.

    When I was 15, I visited Arromanches-sur-mer, the site of the landing. The war museum there is well worth a visit.

    I have yet to visit this site, the cemeteries and battlefields. I must do so. The only wartime cometary we have visited was at Monte Cassino.

    As from next year, there will be 4 years' worth of centenarians to remember. I will most likely go alone, or with some friends. There are specialised battlefields coach tours to choose from.

    1340 - Rotterdam Netherlands founded (loved the time I went there)

    1862 - The United States and Britain agree to suppress the slave trade (hard to believe anyone could put someone into slavery)

    1953 - Mary Terrell wins struggle to end segregation in Wash DC restaurants (not quite 100 years later)

    1893 - Gandhi's first act of civil disobedience (I wish I was that strong)

    1988 - Aluminum contaminates Cornish England's water supply (Camelford, something like 20 tons of Al2(SO4)3)

    1775 - United Colonies change name to United States (it does sound so much better that way)
