A Birthday Meme

image Jen at Casual Slack, whose blog slogan is "Quality Nonsense, Served Up Fresh - Daily" (Take out "quality", "fresh" and "daily" and that's about what you get here too!) tagged "everyone", so I thought I'd accept the challenge of this meme:

Type the day and month of your birthday into Wikipedia and then list 3 events, 2 birthdays and 1 death that happened on that day.

3 Events
1496 - England King Henry VII issues letters patent to John Cabot and his sons, authorizing them to explore unknown lands.
1770 - Boston Massacre: Five Americans, including a black man named Crispus Attucks, and a boy are killed by British troops in an event that would contribute to the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War five years later. (And, I suppose that makes it my fault?)
1936 - First flight of the Supermarine Spitfire fighter aircraft.

2 Birthdays
1948 - Eddy Grant, Guyana-born singer
1956 - Teena Marie, American singer

1 Death
1982 - John Belushi, American actor

I tag everyone else.

PS: First person to work out what the date of my birthday is, can buy me a cake!
