        On this day in 1865, John Wilkes Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer, fatally shoots President Abraham Lincoln at a play at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C.  The attack came only five days after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his massive army at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, effectively ending the American Civil War.

        On this day April 15th, 1947, Jackie Robinson, age 28, becomes the first African-American player in Major League Baseball when he steps onto Ebbets Field in Brooklyn to compete for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Robinson broke the color barrier in a sport that had been segregated for more than 50 years. Exactly 50 years later, on April 15, 1997, Robinson's groundbreaking career was honored and his uniform number, 42, was retired from Major League Baseball by Commissioner Bud Selig in a ceremony attended by over 50,000 fans at New York City's Shea Stadium. Robinson's was the first-ever number retired by all teams in the league.

        4/15/20 (20 yrs ago)  "In Loving Color" made its TV debut! Aw, loved and miss this show.

        Apr 15, 1990. FOX’s sketch comedy series, created by Keenen Ivory Wayans, was modeled after “Saturday Night Live.” The show featured Wayans, his brothers Damon, Marlon and Shawn and his sister Kim. Between skits, the Fly Girls would entertain the studio audience with hip-hop dance. The dance segments of the show helped launch the careers of celebrities including Rosie Perez, Carrie Ann Inaba and Jennifer Lopez, and many comedians including David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx, Kim Coles and Jim Carrey also began their careers on the show. Some of the most popular recurring characters were Homey, the embittered clown, the flammable Fire Marshall Bill and the effeminate movie critics of “Men on Film.”

        1865 - Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States of America, died at 7:22 a.m. Lincoln had been shot in the back of the head the previous evening while attending a performance of "Our American Cousin" at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. The assassin, John Wilkes Booth, escaped, only to be hunted down and shot to death. Lincoln was carried to a boarding house across the street from the theatre. He never regained consciousness

        April 16th 1943

        Hallucinogenic effects of LSD discovered:

        In Basel, Switzerland, Albert Hoffman, a Swiss chemist working at the Sandoz pharmaceutical research laboratory, accidentally consumes LSD-25, a synthetic drug he had created in 1938 as part of his research into the medicinal value of lysergic acid compounds. After taking the drug, formally known as lysergic acid diethylamide, Dr. Hoffman was disturbed by unusual sensations and hallucinations.
