... 1864, in England, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson sent a handwritten manuscript entitled "Alice's Adventures Under-Ground" to 10-year-old Alice Liddell. The work would be published 2-1/2 years later, with the author using the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (right), a fantasy tale of girlish exploits that remains a classic to this day.
... 1953, U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) was born in Glen Dale, West Virginia.
... 1949, in the name of "the people," a Constituent Assembly adopted a Constitution of India, established, according to the preamble, as a "sovereign socialist secular democratic republic" dedicated to "secur[ing] to all its citizens" justice, liberty, equality, and fraternity.
