Paul Revere rides, an earthquake and fires ravage San Francisco, Albert Einstein dies, Grace Kelly becomes a princess, and the U.S. embassy in Beirut is hit by a deadly car bomb, all on this day.
1983: A suicide bomber destroys the United States embassy in Beirut, Lebanon, killing 63 people, including 17 Americans. The attack, the deadliest on a U.S. diplomatic mission up to that time, came in the wake of the U.S. and other Western countries intervening in the Lebanese Civil war in an attempt to try to restore order and central government authority in the country.
