January 1. On January 1, 1863, Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation took effect in the states of the United States that had seceded to form the Confederate States of America. Issued under his authority as Commander in Chief, the Emancipation Proclamation initially had the unusual effect of freeing only those slaves that were in states that the Union did not control. The Union slave-holding border states, Kentucky, Missouri, Maryland, West Virginia and Delaware, were not initially effected by the proclamation.

Slavery was not completely abolished in the United States until the ratification of the 13th Amendment, in December, 1865.

January 2. On January 2, 533, one Mercurius was elevated to Pope, and took the name Pope John II. Mercurius, born in Rome, was named after the old Roman God of Mercury. An obviously inappropriate name for a Catholic Pope, he changed it to John II upon elevation to the papacy.

He was thus the first person to change his name upon being elevated to Pope.

Thanks. That's the plan at least.

In all seriousness, I have no idea what you're referring to. I would never claim that this is an original idea, however. I'm sure others have done it in many, many ways.

What are the rules here? Will Amnorix post, or anyone who's interested? And is the post the one most significant event of the day, or the oddest, or a mere random selection?

No rules. I'm posting one interesting historical event for each day. I will generally try to post events of true historical significance or odd interest, not useless factoids about movie stars or whatever.

Whether others wish to comment or them, or not, or post other factoids, is obviously up to them.

Oh, and P.S., I'm in the Eastern Time Zone, so I may post such facts after midnight here, but before midnight in KC. C'est la vie.

On January 3rd of 1973 CBS sells the Yankees to Steinbrenner aswell as minority owners that contributed a total of $10 million. CBS reportedly took a loss on the transaction. Steinbrenner said that he would not be that involved in the Yankees organized and would mostly be focusing on his ship building business. A business that would later file for bankruptcy in 1993.

January 3. The Meiji Restoration in Japan was completed on January 3, 1868. The Meiji Restoration is the name typically given to the period in which the Tokugawa Shogunate, which had effectively ruled Japan since 1603, was overthrown and the Emperor restored to supreme power in Japan.

The restoration of Imperial power and the oligarchy that replaced the former individual-specific Shoguns paved the path to the end of the Samurai class and a feudal structure, the adoption of a capitalist economy, and the industrialization and modernization of Japan and its rise to status of world power.
