Most of downtown Seattle burns to the ground, the first drive-in movie theater opens, Allied troops storm the beaches of Normandy, the Rolling Stones can't get no "Satisfaction," and "Tetris" is unleashed on the world, all on this day.

1755: Writer and soldier Nathan Hale is born Coventry, Conn. Hale was arrested in New York City on Sept. 21, 1776,  after going behind enemy lines to report on British troop movements for American rebels. He was hanged by British forces the following day and is best remembered for his purported last words: "I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country."
