2Day in History

Today is Saturday, Dec. 18, the 352nd day of 2010. There are 13 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 18, 1865, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery, was declared in effect by Secretary of State William H. Seward.

Ten years ago: The Electoral College cast its ballots, with President-elect George W. Bush receiving the expected 271; Al Gore, however, received 266, one fewer than expected, because of a District of Columbia Democrat who’d left her ballot blank to protest the district’s lack of representation in Congress.

Five years ago: In a televised speech, President George W. Bush declared that Iraq’s parliamentary elections signaled the birth of democracy in the Middle East.
