America gets its first lighthouse, the words to "The Star-Spangled Banner" are written, President McKinley dies, and a hurricane closes Disney World for the first time, all on this day.
1965: "My Mother the Car" premieres on NBC. The show follows the exploits of attorney David Crabtree (played by Jerry Van Dyke) who buys a used car that turns out to be the reincarnation of his mother, who speaks to him through the car's radio. The series, which was panned by critics and viewers, often savagely, would last only one season before being canceled.
