1854: Oscar Wilde, author, was born in Dublin, Ireland. Wilde is best known for his novel, A Picture of Dorian Gray and his 1895 play, The Importance of Being Earnest.

1765: The Stamp Act Congress continued to meet in New York City at what is now called Federal Hall near the New York Stock Exchange. American colonists met to protest the passage of the Stamp Act by British Parliament. The Stamp Act required colonists to purchase a stamp to affix to all business documents. The Stamp Act was eventually repealed but Britain nonetheless made it clear it had complete control of the colonies. Eleven years later, the colonists declared their independence from England fighting successfully for it in the Revolutionary War.
