Maine enters the Union, becoming the 23rd state.
My birthday lies on one of the days a state entered into the union. Though there are 50 states, some share the same date on becoming a state. So being born on this day seems pretty special. Here in 7 years, it will be the 200th aniversary of Maine becoming a state.

The First .com Internet Domain is Registered
This is my personal favorite, being a very tech oriented person. The first ever domain name ever registered was symbolics.com. It was registered on March 15, 1985.
