August 21st

1331: King Stephen Uroš III, after months of anarchy, surrenders to his son and rival Stephen Dušan, who succeeds as King of Serbia. Today, that kid would be like soooo grounded!

1878: The American Bar Association is founded. It promptly sues itself.

1944: The Dumbarton Oaks Conference, a prelude to the United Nations, begins. The conference spends most of its time discussing how to get free parking in Manhattan.
