December 18th

1787: New Jersey becomes the third state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. It would have been first, but it got stuck on the Turnpike.

1915: U.S. President Woodrow Wilson marries Edith Bolling Galt Wilson while president of the United States. Later that night, he slips her a little pocket veto.

1989: The European Community and the Soviet Union sign an agreement on trade and commercial and economic cooperation… thus creating the Russian mob.
