1810: Composer Frédéric Chopin, considered one of the great masters of Romantic music, is born in the village of Zelazowa Wola in what is now Poland. However, while Chopin and his family gave the date as his birth date, the local parish baptismal record, discovered in 1892, gives his birthday as Feb. 22, 1810.
