Thomas Jefferson becomes the first secretary of state, the Dachau concentration camp opens, The Beatles release their first album, and the Comet Hale-Bopp does a fly-by, all on this day.
1967: Muhammad Ali knocks out Zora Folley in the seventh round in New York City to retain his The Ring, WBC and WBA World Heavyweight titles. The match would be his final title defense before being stripped of his titles and having his boxing license suspended on April 28, 1967, for refusing to be drafted to Army service. He would later be sentenced to five years for draft evasion, a decision that was eventually reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court. During the ensuing controversy, he wouldn't box for more than three years.
