May 30th

1536: King Henry VIII of England marries Jane Seymour, a lady-in-waiting to his first two wives... proving that even the King just didn't get out much.

1854: The Kansas-Nebraska Act becomes law establishing the US territories of Nebraska and Kansas... but no one pays any attention until they start playing college football.

1871: The Paris Commune falls... but it still lives today under the name of "The Yale University Political Science Department."
