Phillis Wheatley

Captured and brought from Africa to the US in 1761, Wheatley became a house slave for John Wheatley and his wife Susana, who, recognizing Wheatley's intelligence and wit, educated her in English and Latin and encouraged her talent, allowing her to study.

Shaka Zulu Is Assassinated (1828)

A skilled warrior, Shaka established himself as head of the Zulu circa 1816 and soon made them the dominant power in southeastern Africa. He was ruthless before his mother's death in 1827, but after, he became positively savage. He had at least 7,000 people executed for being insufficiently grief-stricken, put to death any couple found to have conceived during the mourning period, and even slaughtered cows so that their calves would know the loss of a mother. Who ultimately assassinated Shaka? More... Discuss

What did she do that was hailed at the time as "a marvel when it was least expected"? More... Discuss

Bulgaria Independence Day

On September 22, 1908, Prince Ferdinand (1861-1948) of Bulgaria declared the country's independence from the Turkish Ottoman Empire, which had ruled since the 14th century.
