This day in history, April 2…

I’ve never been much of a history buff, and know that I will struggle when it comes to teaching my kids history.  So, I thought I periodically check to find out what happened on this day in history…

This day in American History

On April 2, 1792, the Coinage Act was passed, which established the U.S. Mint.  The first U.S. Mint was built in Philadelphia and it was the first federal building under the Constitution.

This day in International History

On April 2, 2005, Pope John Paul II died at his home in the Vatican. 

Today also happens to be Good Friday, a day observed by Christians worldwide, and commemorates  the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary.  Because of his death, I so freely live.  Without the cross, there would not have been a resurrection.  I thank God for that empty tomb!

Be blessed!

    It’s also the day Clara Veva Blagg, my grandmother, was born. She lived to be 100 (as she had planned), and died a few months later. My thoughts today went to her and many of her birthday celebrations. Just thought I’d add that to your list.
