March the Ninth

This day in history:

March 9th, 1841 - US Supreme Court rules in favor of Africans abducted by Portuguese, who rebelled and took over the slave ship, Amistad, carrying them to Havana, Cuba.

An extremely interesting case. Take the time to read about it.


March 9th, 1858 - Albert Potts of Philadelphia patents the street mailbox

Nothing much to comment on, I just thought this would be an interesting item to impress people with as you went through the day.


March 9th, 1959 - Barbie, the popular girls' doll, debuted, over 800 million sold

That would make her 46. Holding her age well I must admit.
