Thirty-five years ago, Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. But the moon landing didn’t make the Library of Congress’s Today in History page, points out Tom McMahon. The only astronaut to qualify for Today in History is Sally Ride, first U.S. female in space. The July 20 page also misses the plot to kill Hitler. Instead, Today in History memorializes the baptism of evangelist Anne Marbury Hutchinson and the second day of the Seneca Falls women’s rights convention. The first day is featured on July 19.
