Wiki Meme

Morgen at It’s A Blog Eat Blog World just tagged me for this new Wiki Meme. I know I am behind on a couple of memes, but this one sounded fun and easy.

You go Wikipedia, type in the month and day you were born (no year) into their search engine, then you list three events from that day, two birthdays, and one death.
Interesting and fun!

I’m not tagging anyone for this meme, but feel free to do it if you want to!!

February 22

3 Events – (I did 4. I couldn’t decide)

1865 - Tennessee adopts a new constitution that abolishes slavery.

1969 - The last time all four Beatles were together for a recording session.
