Sir Francis Drake sets out around the world, the National Guard is born, Al Gore concedes, and Saddam Hussein is caught, all on this day.
2003: Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein is captured by U.S. forces near his home town of Tikrit in a mission code named Operation Red Dawn. Soldiers found the former Iraqi president in a "spider hole" underneath a mud hut compound. Despite being armed with a pistol and an AK-47 assault rifle, and provisioned with $750,000 in cash, Hussein did not resist capture.
