The Pilgrims set sail on the Mayflower, "Jingle Bells" is copyrighted, General Motors is founded, Nixon drops in on "Laugh-In," Hurricane Ivan hits the Gulf Coast, and the federal government bails out AIG, all on this day.

1963: The Beatles release "She Loves You" in the United States. While the song had proved a smashing success in the United Kingdom, in America it garnered very little airplay and ended up selling only about a thousand copies. The song would find new life in the U.S. early the next year when "I Want to Hold Your Hand" rocketed up the charts to No. 1. "She Loves You" eventually spent five weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard chart, behind "I Want to Hold Your Hand," and then replaced it for two weeks at No. 1 beginning on March 21, 1964.
