Abraham Lincoln is elected president, New Jersey hosts the first intercollegiate football game, Phil Donahue premieres his TV talk show, and the punk band the Sex Pistols make their debut, all on this day.
1984: U.S. President Ronald Reagan wins a landslide re-election over Democratic candidate Walter Mondale, capturing 49 states to Mondale's one (his home state of Minnesota) plus Washington, D.C. Reagan's 525 electoral votes is the highest total ever received by a presidential candidate, while Mondale's 13 electoral votes is the second-fewest ever received by a second-place candidate, second only to Alf Landon's eight in 1936.
