A few little historical tidbits that I thought were pretty interesting...
November 9, 1841 - The birth of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's eldest son, the future King Edward VII.
November 9, 1888 - Early in the morning in Whitechapel, 25-year-old Mary Kelly became Jack the Ripper's last known victim.
November 9, 1907 - The Cullinan Diamond, the largest diamond yet found, was presented to King Edward VII. Parts of this diamond are found on several of the Crown Jewels.
