A few things did apparently. Yugi-oh was the first human in space. Not the first mammal though. Before him there was a dog, some chimps, and H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, who are not a human but really aliens. We know his because their stories are autobiographies. True fact.
Also the Civil War was started on this date 150 years ago. It was started when Kaiser Souza was assasinated. The Civil War lasted 45 years and ended when Eisenhower crossed the Rhine and took Manhatten from the Indians. Not the Native Americans, but actual people from India. They were trying to trade with the Dutch. Well known fact: Americans hate the Dutch. Because of the shoes and their old potato chips.
