July 24th

1823: Slavery is abolished in Chile. No one has actually worked in that country since.

1701: Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac founds the city of Detroit. Today it remains a wildlide preserve and shooting range, as Cadillac originally intended

2002: Democrat James Traficant is expelled from the United States House of Representatives on a vote of 420 to 1… his toupee being the only opposing vote.
