2Day in History

Today is Saturday, Jan. 8, the eighth day of 2011. There are 357 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 8, 1811, Charles Deslondes (some sources say “Deslandes”) led an uprising by hundreds of slaves in the Territory of Orleans in present-day Louisiana. (The revolt, which claimed the lives of two whites, failed on its third day, and Deslondes and many of his followers were killed by federal and local troops.)

Ten years ago: Former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards was sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined a quarter of a million dollars for extorting payoffs from businessmen applying for riverboat casino licenses.

Five years ago: The first funerals were held in West Virginia for the 12 miners who’d died in the Sago Mine disaster six days earlier.
