Well, I found this cool site. Not sure how accurate it is, but it has info on every single date of the year. People who were born, people who died, things that happened all on a specific date.
For instance: Today in history
1939 Mike Ditka coach/tight-end (Bears, Cowboys, NFL rookie year 1961) was born
1949 Country songwriter Stuart Hamblen, 31, underwent a spiritual conversion. Author of the popular 1954 hit "This Old House," Hamblen later wrote such Christian favorites as "It Is No Secret What God Can Do," "How Big is God?" and "They That Wait Upon the Lord."
