Today in history
Today is Wednesday, Nov. 2, the 306th day of 2011. There are 59 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 2, 1861, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln relieved Maj. Gen. John C. Fremont of his command of the Army’s Department of the West based in St. Louis, following Fremont’s unauthorized efforts to emancipate slaves in Missouri.

Ten years ago:  President George W. Bush, saying the war in Afghanistan was unraveling Osama bin Laden’s terrorist network, chided critics for clamoring for more action, and said the U.S. military campaign would not pause for the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. The government reported that the nation’s unemployment rate had shot up to 5.4 percent in Oct. 2001.

Five years ago: The Rev. Ted Haggard resigned as president of the National Association of Evangelicals after a man said they’d had sexual trysts together (Haggard later confessed he was guilty of sexual immorality). Gunmen in Iraq killed the Shiite dean of Baghdad University’s school of administration and economics.

One year ago: Republicans won control of the House of Representatives, picking up 63 seats in midterm elections, while Democrats retained a majority in the Senate; Republican governors outnumbered Democrats after gaining six states. Californians rejected a ballot measure that would have made their state the first to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Surfing champion Andy Irons, 32, was found dead in a Dallas-area hotel room. (An autopsy found that Irons had died from sudden cardiac arrest due to severe blockage of a main artery.)

Singer-songwriter k.d. lang is 50. Actor David Schwimmer is 45. Rapper Nelly is 37. Prodigy (Mobb Deep) is 37. Actor Danny Cooksey is 36. Rock musician Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie) is 36.
