Today’s history – NYT:
- On this date in 1620, pilgrims aboard the Mayflower went ashore for the first time at present-day Plymouth, Mass. Great misery would later befall those of their descendants who became Red Sox fans.
- The great guitarist Albert Lee was born on this date in 1943.
- And on this date in 1970, Elvis Presley met with President Richard M. Nixon in the Oval Office to discuss fighting drugs. Except those drugs to which Elvis was addicted, of course.
