March 21st

1556: In Oxford, Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer is burned at the stake... which really put a damper on the neighbors' barbeque.

1788: A fire in New Orleans leaves most of the town in ruins. Curiously, no one blames it on racism or George Washington.

1933: Construction of Dachau, the first Nazi Germany concentration camp, is completed. This remains the only kind of Jewish housing the UN, or Vice President Joe Biden approves of.
