Hello welcome to Fun Fact of the Day this is something I want to try every week giving out little tidbits and facts. Any ways on this day in history in 1607 Colonists land at Cape Henry, Va., They would found Jamestown the next month, in 1865 John Wilkes Booth, Lincoln’s assassin, was surrounded by federal troops in a barn in Virginia. He was shot and killed by one of the soldiers that had snuck around back and shot him. He was then paralyzed and later bleed to death (a fitting end if you ask me), in 1937 The German Luftwaffe (air force) destroyed the Spanish town of Guernica, and finally in 1986 The worst nuclear power plant accident in history occurred at Chernobyl, near Kiev, U.S.S.R.
