It is always interesting to read about legally significant events that occurred on this day in history. I find it exceptionally intriguing to read about events that have affected our present state of affairs.
The following events occurred on November 8 throughout history:
November 8, 1864 Abraham Lincoln was elected to his 2nd term as President
November 8, 1889 Montana became the 41st U.S. state
November 8, 1923 Adolf Hitler led the Nazis to overthrow the German government, but failed. This failed coupe became known as the "Beer Hall Putsch"
November 8, 1932 Franklin D. Roosevelt won the U.S. presidency by defeating Herbert Hoover
November 8, 1933 Franklin D. Roosevelt revealed the “Civil Works Administration”; an organization intended to generate jobs for 4 million unemployed Americans
November 8, 1944 Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected U.S. President for a fourth term. After his death, the law changed, limiting future U.S. Presidents to serve only two elected terms
November 8, 1960 John F. Kennedy won the U.S. presidency by defeating Richard Nixon
November 8, 1966 Ronald Reagan was elected governor of California
November 8, 1971 Led Zeppelin released "Led Zeppelin IV." This album became the third best selling album in the United States. This isn’t a legally significant event, but it definitely changed history.
November 8, 1988 George Bush won the U.S. presidency by defeating Mike Dukakis
November 8, 2012 Just two days before this day, President Barack Obama won the U.S. presidency by defeating Mitt Romney
I was particularly interested to learn that November 8 was the day that Franklin D. Roosevelt revealed the “Civil Works Administration.” Our economy is in a similar state and could certainly benefit from an organization intended to generate jobs for unemployed Americans.
