On this day, January 16th, in history:

A biography of Taco Bell founder Glen Bell who passed away on January 16th of 2010, and these historic dates:

  • 1786 – The Commonwealth of Virginia enacted the Statute for Religious Freedom authored by Thomas Jefferson.
  • 1809Peninsular War: The British defeat the French at the Battle of La Coruña.
  • 1847John C. Fremont is appointed Governor of the new California Territory.
  • 1909Ernest Shackleton's expedition finds the magnetic South Pole.
  • 1919Temperance movement: The United States ratifies the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, authorizing Prohibition in the United States one year after ratification.
  • 1939 – The Irish Republican Army (IRA) begins a bombing and sabotage campaign in England.
  • 1942 – Crash of TWA Flight 3, killing all 22 aboard, including film star Carole Lombard.
  • 1991 – The United States goes to war with Iraq, beginning the Gulf War (U.S. Time).
  • 2002 – The UN Security Council unanimously establishes an arms embargo and the freezing of assets of Osama bin Laden, Al-Qaida, and the remaining members of the Taliban.
  • 2003 – The Space Shuttle Columbia takes off for mission STS-107 which would be its final one. Columbia disintegrated 16 days later on re-entry.
  • Which brings this message: be resolute in what you start on this day, January 16th, many of the above did not follow through or solve the problems they were designed to meet.
