January 23rd

1368: In a coronation ceremony, Zhu Yuanzhang ascends to the throne of China... thanks mostly to his “tiger mom.”

1941: Charles Lindbergh testifies before the U.S. Congress and recommends that the United States negotiate a neutrality pact with Adolf Hitler… either that or do something about Jews joining his country club, whichever’s easier.

2002: "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh returns to the United States to face a trial for treason and to accept an honorary degree at Yale University.
