On This Day

On this day in 1913, the 16th Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, giving Congress the power to collect income taxes. This pivotal moment in American history paved the way for the modern tax system and the funding of government programs. In 1959, rock and roll musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson died in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa. The tragic event, known as “The Day the Music Died,” had a lasting impact on the music industry and popular culture.
