Guy Fawkes is caught red-handed, Susan B. Anthony votes, George Foreman becomes the oldest heavyweight boxing champion ever, Saddam Hussein is sentenced to death, and tragedy strikes Fort Hood, all on this day.
1931: Musician Ike Turner, best known for his 1960s work with his then-wife Tina Turner in the Ike & Tina Turner revue, is born in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Tina Turner's domestic abuse allegations against him in her 1986 autobiography, and the 1993 film adaptation of the book, coupled with his cocaine addiction, damaged Ike Turner's career in the 1980s and 1990s. He died of a cocaine overdose at the age of 76 on Dec. 12, 2007.
