Friday, June 22, 2007

On 22nd June 1938 in New York City Joe Louis defeated Max Schmelling by first round knockout in "The Fight" of the century. The battle was more for the national pride of Germany and America than any boxing belt.

A few war anniversaries fall today too... like Gernamy invading Russia during world war 2. But I will leave the good people at Associated Press to fill you in on those ones today ;-)
