Here’s a look at what happened today in history:

  • 1512: Four years in the making, Michalangelo’s painting of the Sistine Chapel ceiling in Vatican City opens to the public. It covers over 5,000 square feet of the chapel’s arched ceiling, and depicts hundreds of human figures in various poses.
  • 1765: Britain imposed the Stamp Act, forcing colonists in then British America to pay a tax on legal documents and other papers to help fund British military endeavors in North America. Colonists strongly opposed the measures, organizing a resistance that would eventually lead to the American Revolution.
  • 1938: The “Match of the Century” pit small and scrappy throughbred racehorse Seabiscuit against regal Triple Crown winner War Animal. Seabiscuit won by four lengths and went on to be the American Horse of the Year.
  • 1959: Montreal Canadians goaltender Jacques Plante took a shot to the face from New York Rangers forward Andy Bathgate. Upon returning to the ice, Plante covered his stitches behind a crude goalie mask he designed himself. Despite protests from his coach, Plante becomes the first person to regularly wear a mask during regulation play.
