Today, I turn the beautiful age of 19 years old. I have now reached a total of 599,184,000 seconds of life.

One fun thing I desired to write about, for my birthday, was always something I forgot to do in the month of May. So without further a do, I present to you a few important and interesting historical events that happened on the 10th of May during the years.


1503 Columbus discovers Cayman Islands

1752 Benjamin Franklin tests the lightning conductor with his his kite-flying experiment

1775 2nd Continental Congress in Philadelphia names George Washington, supreme commander

1797 1st US Navy ship, the “United States,” is launched

1866 Romania National Holiday, the Modern Monarchy Instauration of the Kingdom of Romania

1872 Victoria Woodhull becomes 1st woman nominated for US presidency by Equal Rights Party at Apollo Hall, NYC
