The Boston Massacre occurred on March 5, 1770 and author Ann Rinaldi wrote the Book entitled The Fifth of March in 1993.
Other events from March 5th are:
1836: Samuel Colt released the first Colt revolver.
1868: Impeachment proceedings began against President Andrew Johnson.
1933: The Nazis won parliamentary elections, giving control of the country to Adolf Hitler.
1946: Winston Churchill used the term 'Iron Curtain' in a speech
March 5th seems to be an ominous date in history.
Any good things you can think of that happened on March 5th in history?
