Today in History January 29th

You can check here and there. This is what stood out to me:
1844--Richard Theodore Greener became the first African American to graduate from Harvard University.

1882--Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States (1933-1945), was born in Hyde Park, N.Y.

1981--An estimated two million New Yorkers turned out for a ticker-tape parade honoring the freed American hostages from Iran.

1994--The Dallas Cowboys repeated as NFL champions as they defeated the Buffalo Bills, 30-13, in the Super Bowl. It was the fourth straight Super Bowl loss for the Bills.
What stood out to you--KSH?
