Alexander the Great died today (323 BCE). Also, Paris’ Jardin des Plantes opened (1793), crews from Oxford and Cambridge rowed in the first Boat Race (1829), New Zealand’s Mount Tarawera erupted (1886), Saab produced their first automobile (1947), and Apple shipped the first Apple II (1977). And scientists mapping the floor of New Zealand’s Lake Rotomahana announced the rediscovery of the Pink and White Terraces, thought to have been destroyed when Mount Tarawera erupted (2011).
