This day in history, April 5

As I mentioned in a prior post, I am sorely lacking in knowledge of history and am on a quest to learn more about history before I have to start teaching it to my children.  Fortunately, I have time on my side. 

This day in American History

On April 5, 1614, Pocahontas married John Rolfe.  She was the daughter of the chief of the Powhatan Indian Confederacy.  He was an English tobacco farmer. Their marriage secured peace between the Powhatan Indians and the Jamestown settlers for years to come. 

Additionally, on this day in 1856, Booker T. Washington was born.  Booker T. Washington was a political leader, educator, author, and orator.  As the guest of the late President Theodore Roosevelt, in 1901, he was the first African-American ever invited to the White House.

This day in International History

On April 5, 1951, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were sentenced to death.  They were two spies convicted of wartime espionage for stealing the atomic bomb secret for Soviet Russia. 

Do you struggle with history also?

Be blessed,


Lady V dZine
