The History Channel has a special going called “The Ten Days That Unexpectantly Changed America“.

Here is their 10 days:

  • Sept. 17, 1862: Antietam
  • May 26, 1637: Massacre at Mystic
  • July 16, 1939: Einstein’s Letter
  • Sept. 6, 1901: McKinley’s Assassination
  • Jan. 24, 1848: California Gold Rush
  • July 21, 1925: Scopes Trial
  • July 6, 1892: Homestead Strike
  • June 21, 1964: Freedom Summer
  • Jan. 25, 1787: Shays’ Rebellion
  • Sept. 9, 1956: Elvis Presley’s debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

Um….9/11 anybody? Lincoln’s assassination? The Constitution signing? Louisiana purchase? Pearl Harbor?

Instead we have Elvis singing on the Ed Sullivan Show and a massacre that happened 150 years before we were a nation.
