February 7th

1238: The Mongols burn the Russian city of Vladimir... mostly to collect the insurance money.

1882: The last bare-knuckle heavyweight boxing championship fight takes place in Mississippi City, Mississippi. Unfortunately for the boxers, fighting without a cup continues for 20 more years.

1962: The United States bans all Cuban imports and exports... mostly in reaction to Fidel Castro and Desi Arnaz.
