This Week In History: September 4th - September 10thby

With summer on its way out, you may be tempted to travel back in time to relieve the glorious sunshine – not us! Here at One News Page, we make use of our own glorious time travelling capabilities to look back on big stories and earth-moving moments from decades and centuries past. Here’s what happened this week in time gone by!

September 4th, 2016 – Mother Teresa Canonized
The late Mother Teresa – regarded as savior to many through her pioneering missionary work – was recognized as a saint this time last year under the gaze of The Pope.

September 5th, 1666 – The Great Fire of London Ends
It was a disaster that saw over 13,000 homes destroyed at eight people killed – and it’s one of the more memorable dates British schoolchildren have memorized across the years.

September 6th, 1620 – The New World Awaits
On this date in the 17th century, pilgrims aboard the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, UK, in search of the so-called New World – to you and me, that is of course the USA.

September 7th, 1996 – Tupac Shakur Shot
This week sees the 21st anniversary of a drive-by shooting which would have a colossal knock-on effect in the music industry – as rapper Tupac Shakur succumbed to shots fired on this date less than a week later.

September 8th, 1504 – Michelangelo’s David Unveiled
Michelangelo was a man of many talents – and while many will know him best for his breath-taking Sistine Chapel ceiling mural, others will recognize his statue of David most of all – in all his glory!

September 9th, 2015 – Queen Elizabeth II Breaks a Record
As of this date two years ago, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning monarch in British history – with a record-breaking 63 years and seven months on the throne. The record had previously been held by Queen Victoria – and as of the time of writing, Queen Elizabeth is only adding to her staggering reign by the day.

September 10th, 2008 – The Large Hadron Collider Debuts
It’s thought to hold the secrets to all matter in the known universe – well, near enough – but regardless of hyperbole, the incredible work completed by those overseeing the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, started today nine years ago – as the machine was powered up for the first time.

Join us again for another trip back in time soon – next Monday should do it!
