George Washington BridgeOn this day in 1901, a 63-year-old schoolteacher named Annie Edson Taylor becomes the first person to take the plunge over Niagara Falls in a barrel. She survived, which is not easy to do. On this day in 1931, eight months ahead of schedule (people worked hard back in the day), New York governor Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicated the George Washington Bridge over the Hudson River. The 4,760-foot-long suspension bridge, the longest in the world at the time, connected Fort Lee, New Jersey with Washington Heights in New York City. On this day in 1945, the United Nations Charter, which was adopted and signed on June 26, 1945, became effective and ready to be enforced.
