Napoleon returns to Paris, "Uncle Tom's Cabin" is published, the Republican Party is born, John and Yoko get hitched, and Janis Joplin hits No. 1 posthumously, all on this day.
1948: Hall of Fame hockey player Bobby Orr, who revolutionized the position of defenseman during his 12 years in the NHL, is born in Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada. Orr played 10 years for the Boston Bruins, winning the Stanley Cup in 1970 and 1972, before playing his final two years with the Chicago Black Hawks. He holds the record for most points and assists in a single season by a defenseman. He also won a record eight consecutive Norris Trophies as the NHL's best defenseman and three consecutive Hart Trophies as the league's most valuable player.
