Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 19, 1991, Soviet hard-liners made the stunning announcement that President Mikhail S. Gorbachev had been removed from power. (The coup attempt collapsed two days later with Gorbachev temporarily restored as leader until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in Dec. 1991.)

One year ago: The last American combat brigade exited Iraq, seven years and five months after the U.S.-led invasion began.
