The American Civil War begins, FDR dies, a Soviet cosmonaut becomes the first human to travel into space, and the first space shuttle lifts off, all on this day.

1966: In an eerie recreation of the duo's hit single from two years before, Jan Berry (left) of Jan & Dean crashes his Corvette into a parked truck on Beverly Hills' Whittier Drive, near a stretch of road in Los Angeles known as Dead Man's Curve. Berry was in a coma for two months and suffered paralysis and extensive brain damage. He required four years of rehabilitation to be able to talk and a full decade in order to perform live again.
