Though there are plenty of innocuous events that happened on this date, April 14th held its share of tragedy also.

149 years ago . . . In 1865, PRESIDENT LINCOLN was shot and mortally wounded by JOHN WILKES BOOTH, while attending the comedy ”Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theater in Washington.  Lincoln died the following morning.

102 years ago . . . In 1912, the “unsinkable” TITANIC collided with an iceberg on its maiden voyage and began sinking.  716 passengers survived and 1,517 drowned in the icy water.

Four years ago . . . In 2010, Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted causing ash to eventually drift over much of Europe.  Air traffic was shut down over many parts of Europe for the next six days.
