The Union gets its first victory of the Civil War, Ronald Reagan is born, The Righteous Brothers hit No. 1, and astronaut Alan Shepard works on his lunar golf game, all on this day.
1950: Singer Natalie Cole, the daughter of Nat King Cole who found musical success in the mid-1970s with the R&B hits "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)," "Inseparable" and "Our Love," is born in Los Angeles, Calif. Cole revived her career in the early 1990s with her best-selling album, "Unforgettable... with Love," which saw her singing songs her father made famous, including an interactive duet between her and her late father on the song "Unforgettable." The song eventually reached No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 10 on the R&B chart, going gold.
