Happy Birthday Berlin

In honor of Rick Berlin’s birthday today, I thought I would put up a short post of some significant events that occurred on April 19.

Short video link: THIS DAY IN HISTORY.

On April 19, 1775, the American Revolution began.

In 1897, the first Boston Marathon was held.

In 1956, Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III of Monaco.

Berlin also shares his birthday with cultural luminaries such as Maria Sharapova, Kate Hudson, Paloma Picasso and Alan Price.

Rick was born on April 19, 1945. Check out this original page one from the India-Burma Theater Roundup from that day. It was from the week that President Franklin D. Roosevelt was buried.
