The Wright Brothers were not the first to dream of flying machines or even the first to experiment and/or claim success. What we definitely know is that even before their aeronautic engineering began, they designed and built bicycles. How cool is that? #onthisday #history #science #engineering #pioneers #takeflight #thewrightbrothers #bicycles #biplanes #airplanes #aeronautics #inventors #takingchances #orvilleandwilbur

On this day in 1990, Father Jean-Bertrand Aristide won Haiti's first democratic presidential election, by a landslide, ending Haiti's long dictatorial rule by the U.S. backed Duvaliers. He had a turbulent Presidency, falling in and out of power until he was exiled in 2004, but still stands as a symbol of democracy, especially in the face of Western interference. #TodayInHistory #OnThisDay #HaitianPride #AmericanHistory #KnowYourHistory
