[TIPS] list of historical anniversaries

During a recent "out-of-the-box" training by the Apple folks as part of the Classrooms for the Future this site was presented to us as part of.. well, part of something else, actually. But I thought your social studies teachers might like this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_anniversaries

Yes, it's a wikipedia article. And it shows another reason why wikipedia should NOT be blocked at school. (https://webmail.caiu.org/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20071127-banning-wikipedia-at-school-good-idea-or-missed-opportunity.html - thanks to Courtney Engle for sharing that one with us) Yes, we ALL know by now that you don't want to cite it. Fine. Now let's get past the fear, shall we?
