Carloman I and his older brother Charlemagne were crowned Kings of the Franks today (768). Also, Supernova 1604 exploded (1604), the Collegiate School of Connecticut, now Yale, was chartered (1701), Francisco Palou founded the Mission San Francisco de Asis (1776), Costa Rica abolished slavery (1824), the Dublin and Kingstown Railway began operations (1834), the Washington Monument opened to the public (1888), and France abolished capital punishment (1981). And a fragment of the Peekskill meteorite landed in a driveway and destroyed a family car (1992).
