Vikings sack Paris, the Hollywood Walk of Fame gets its first star, President Eisenhower dies, and Three Mile Island melts down, all on this day.
1834: The U.S. Senate votes to censure President Andrew Jackson for the removal of federal deposits from the Bank of the United States and distributing the funds to several dozen private banks throughout the country. Jackson was opposed to the institution on the grounds that it conferred economic privileges on financial elites, violating republican principles of social equality, but opponents saw the move as an abuse of executive power. Jackson would eventually get his way though, with the bank becoming a private corporation in 1836 under Pennsylvania commonwealth law and eventually liquidating in 1841.
