This Day in Time was founded in late 2015 as an outlet to share my love of history with the world.  One of my favorite memories growing up was reading the newspaper and finding the “this date in history” section.  Oh, how I loved reading about the different events which shaped the world we live in today.

Unfortunately, as I got older, I stopped getting the newspaper and that passion faded into nothing more than a memory.  Out of the blue one day, I decided, what if I could bring that passion back to life?  That idea has become this website.

I’m not a professional, I’m just your normal, average history buff.  My goal is to scour the history books and pick a unique and engaging event from each day in time to share with you.  My plan is to pick something fun, up-lifting and otherwise not well known…but I’m only viewing these events through my eyes.  If you think of anything that should be shared on a particular date, please send me an email at

Thank you for stopping by and I sincerely hope this brings you the same joy that it does for me.
