According to the "History Today" in my email, this date was the day in 1861 that Massachusetts troops were attacked by a Secessionist mob in Baltimore with the result that 4 soldiers were killed. It was the first blood shed in the Civil War.

Also, having lived in the area, I must mention that today is the anniversary of Lexington and Concord ("where the embattled farmers stood and fired the shot heard round the world").
