This Day in History:
--On this date in 1861, the very famous "Battle of Bull Run" was fought. This was either the very first significant battle in the U.S. civil war or a 5K Run with a very weird name. It was over quickly, but not as fast as the Battle of Red Bull Run.
--In 1873, Jesse James pulled off the world's first train robbery. That was way before he dated Sandra Bullock.
--On this date in 1925, John T. Scopes was found guilty of violating Tennessee state law for teaching evolution.
--On this date in 1956, Billboard magazine calls Elvis Presley "the most controversial entertainer since Liberace." Who knew Liberace would win end up winning that one?
