This Day in History (TDIH): 1869 – The Suez Canal, connecting the Mediterranean and the Red seas, is opened.  The canal would allow for much quicker travel as seafarers were no longer required to navigate around the continent of Africa.


Fact of the Day (FOTD):   The Statue of Liberty was originally planned as a lighthouse to guide ships and vessels into the Suez Canal.  Because the project never materialized, the sculptor instead gifted it to the USA.
