Today in History

Today is Friday, Sept. 7, the 251st day of 2012. There are 115 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2008, three people accused of murdering a Canyon Country bar owner appeared in court for their preliminary hearing. Christopher, Ralph and Cynthia Rosas had been accused of killing Louis Alexander Campanelli behind a bar in 2006.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 7, 1812, the Battle of Borodino took place during the Napoleonic Wars as French troops clashed with Russian forces outside Moscow; although France won a short-term victory, Russia was able to ultimately drive out Napoleon’s invaders. (The battle was commemorated by composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky with his “1812 Overture.”)

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, meeting at Camp David, said the world had to act against Saddam Hussein, arguing that the Iraqi leader had defied the United Nations and reneged on promises to destroy weapons of mass destruction. Serena Williams easily beat Venus Williams 6-4, 6-3 to win the U.S. Open and a third straight Grand Slam title. Uzi Gal, the German-born inventor of the Uzi submachine gun, died in Philadelphia at age 79.

Five years ago: Osama bin Laden appeared in a video for the first time in three years, telling Americans they should convert to Islam if they wanted the war in Iraq to end. A federal judge ruled that Iran had to pay $2.65 billion to the families of the 241 U.S. service members killed in the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut. A jury in St. Francisville, La., acquitted Sal and Mabel Mangano, the owners of a nursing home where 35 patients died after Hurricane Katrina, of negligent homicide and cruelty charges. Shawn Johnson won the women’s all-around title at the world gymnastics championships in Stuttgart, Germany; among the men, China’s Yang Wei won his second straight title.

One year ago: The latest in a series of Republican presidential debates brought together Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum in Simi Valley. A private Russian jet carrying a top ice hockey team slammed into a riverbank moments after takeoff from the airport near the western city of Yaroslavl, killing at least 44 people. A powerful bomb hidden in a briefcase ripped through a crowd of people waiting to enter a New Delhi courthouse, killing 13 people.
