Today In History
October 61981: Anwar Sadat, the president of Egypt, was assassinated. In 1978, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Israel's Prime Minister Begin, for the Camp David Accord (Peace Treaty) that was mediated by United States President Jimmy Carter.
1866: Library of Congress: The first robbery of a moving train in a remote location took place in Indiana. A wave of train robberies followed. Train robberies became frequent in the 1870s and peaked in the 1890s. Specialists in this form of crime included the Reno brothers, who operated in southern Indiana; the Farringtons, whose escapades took them into Kentucky and Tennessee; and the Jesse James gang, who wreaked havoc upon rails in the Midwest. Hired by railroad companies anxious to protect themselves, Pinkerton detectives were seldom far behind the robberies.
