Today in history -- Kansas and Paris

1871: The Commune of Paris revolted against the French national government under Adolphe Thiers, beginning a period of violence known as “Bloody Week.”

1856: During the small civil war known as Bleeding Kansas —a dispute over control of the new U.S. territory of Kansas under the doctrine of popular sovereignty—the town of Lawrence was sacked by a proslavery mob intent on destroying the “hotbed of abolitionism.”

2006: Google Video started offering space for users to upload personal movies and I started making home videos of my family.
