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.
1943: Singer Fabian Forte, who became a teen idol of the late 1950s and early 1960s with 11 of his songs hitting the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, is born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Some of Fabian's hit singles included "Tiger," "Hound Dog Man," "Turn Me Loose" and "This Friendly World." At the age of 18, he gave up his singing career to focus on acting, appearing in movies such as "Five Weeks in a Balloon," "High Time," "North to Alaska" and "The Longest Day."
