On this day in 1775, George Washington became commander of the Continental Army, leading to the freedom of a nation that bows down to no king or queen. On this day in 1937, sixteen people died on an avalanche on Nanga Parbat, making it the worst climbing disaster ever on an 8000-meter peak.
Notables born on this day include Erroll Garner (1921), Waylon Jennings (1937), Johnny Halliday (1943), and Leah Remini (1970), who recently exposed Scientology’s inner workings. Those who died on this day include Ella Fitzgerald (1996) and Casey Kasem (2014). Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, the anxious Cyrus wants to be sure that Andrzej has brought his favorite toy on the walkies:
