ON THIS DATE: In 1776, the Continental Congress formally declared the name of the new nation to be the “United States” of America. In 1850, California became the 31st state to join the union. In 1926, the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) was created by the Radio Corporation of America (RCA). In 1942, a Japanese floatplane dropped incendiary bombs on an Oregon state forest—the first and only air attack on the U.S. mainland in the war. In 1956, Elvis Presley made his first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” In 1957, the first civil rights bill to pass Congress since Reconstruction was signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower. The new act established the Civil Rights Section of the Justice Department and empowered federal prosecutors to obtain court injunctions against interference with the right to vote. In 1979, Tracy Austin, at 16, became the youngest player to win the U.S. Open women’s tennis title. In 1994, the space shuttle Discovery blasted off on an 11-day mission. In 2007, the NFL caught the New England Patriots illegally videotaping coaching signals of the New York Jets from an unauthorized location in a Week 1 game in East Rutherford, New Jersey—a scandal the media soon dubbed “Spygate.”
