July 30th

1619: In Jamestown, Virginia, the first representative assembly in the Americas, the House of Burgesses, convenes for the first time. It creates the first American budget deficit within the first 15 minutes.

1971: David Scott and James Irwin on the Apollo Lunar Module module Falcon land on the Moon with the first Lunar Rover. They drive around forever looking for a gas station.

1975: Jimmy Hoffa disappears from the parking lot of the Machus Red Fox restaurant in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan… judging by what he ordered for dinner there, it’s possible he’s just still in the bathroom.
