The American Revolutionary War breaks out, the Soviet Union launches the first space station, the Waco siege ends in a deadly blaze, and homegrown terrorists strike Oklahoma City, all on this day.
2002: The romantic-comedy "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," written by and starring Nia Vardalos, premieres in theaters. A sleeper hit, the film would go on to gross $241.4 million in North America, despite never reaching No. 1 at the box office during its release.
