On This Day In History for November 26, 2014

November 26 is the 330th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. There are 35 days remaining in 2014.

  • It was on this date in 1778, In the Hawaiian Islands, Captain James Cook becomes the first European to visit Maui.
  • Official opening of Thomas Telford’s Pontcysyllte Aqueduct was 209 years ago today.
  • 151 years ago today, United States President Abraham Lincoln proclaims November 26 as a national Thanksgiving Day, to be celebrated annually on the final Thursday of November. (Since 1941, it has been on the fourth Thursday.)
  • Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon become the first people to enter the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun in over 3000 years on this date in 1922.
  • Also today in 1922, The Toll of the Sea debuts as the first general release film to use two-tone Technicolor. (The Gulf Between was the first film to do so, but it was not widely distributed.)
  • The Delta II rocket makes its maiden flight on this date in 1990.
  • Concorde makes its final flight, over Bristol, England 11 years ago today.
