I thought I'd create a thread where I share some things that happened on this day in history, and you guys can feel free to discuss these events (especially if you were alive when they happened) and also you may add your own if you have anything in particular that I may have missed. I'll try to update it multiple times per week, daily when my schedule permits.

7th February:

1812 - Charles Dic|<ens (name is censored lol) was born

1856 - The colonial Tasmanian Parliament passes the first piece of legislation (the Electoral Act of 1856) anywhere in the world providing for elections by way of a secret ballot.

1964 - Beatles arrive in New York for their first visit to the USA

1991 - The IRA launches a mortar attack on 10 Downing Street during a cabinet meeting.

1992 - The European Union is established as the Maastricht Treaty is signed
