I was looking at a list of events which occurred on August 10th in history, and came across some interesting parallels. Here are a few I noticed:
Two different Magellans, both the first to make very long exploratory journeys with similar goals.
This date appears to be an important day for several major revolutions.
And is also in important day when it comes to ending wars or revolutions.
Three of the world's greatest repositories of knowledge or art had their start today.
There you have it – a list of several patterns on this date in history. Now I’m motivated to look for similar patterns on other dates. I’d also love to hear of any other interesting historical patterns you have noticed!
I write historical fiction, and I invite you to share the journey to published author with me.
