This Day In History: January 01!”

Compiled by Ramesh C. Reddy

How can 'This Day In History' influence us?

There are events in history that encourage us and let us see that not all leaders are bad but can influence their constituents. Not only that, history helps us see what we should not ever repeat but also helps us see what good things have been done that should be repeated. Our hope is while you go through 'This Day in History', you will be moved to action in your own life.
