Pope Clement V excommunicated Venice today (1309). Also, the U.S. Navy was established (1794), England and Scotland played the first international rugby match (1871), the Cincinnati Courthouse Riots erupted (1884), Geronimo surrendered (1887), and “Typhoid Mary” Mallon was quarantined for life (1915). And at least 12 million Poles took part in the Solidarity warning strike (1981).
