I intend to feature historic events and people from each day. Given that most of these people and events have had long books and extensive coverage these will be more like blurbs with links to more information.
My hope is that I might feature something that gets a person to be interested in history - maybe I'll even help a person find something unusual.
Besides, it's a great excuse to play with history sites every day!
Speaking of, here are a bunch of links you may find interesting.
BBC - On This Day
Tristan Louis - Today In History
The History Channel - This Day In History
Scope Systems - Any Day In History
