June 12th in History
On June 12th, 1987, President Reagan, during a visit to the divided German city of Berlin, publicly challenged Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev to "tear down this wall."

On this date:
In 1665, England installed a municipal government in New York, formerly the Dutch settlement of New Amsterdam.

In 1776, Virginia's colonial legislature became the first to adopt a Bill of Rights.

In 1838, the Iowa Territory was organized.

In 1898, Philippine nationalists declared independence from Spain.

In 1937, the Soviet Union executed eight army leaders as a purge under Josef Stalin continued.

In 1939, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum was dedicated in Cooperstown, New York.

In 1963, civil rights leader Medgar Evers was fatally shot in front of his home in Jackson, Mississippi.

In 1967, the Supreme Court struck down state laws prohibiting interracial marriages.

Ten years ago: In a speech to the Supreme Soviet legislature, President Mikhail S. Gorbachev eased his objection to a reunified Germany holding membership in NATO.

Five years ago: The Supreme Court dealt a potentially crippling blow to federal affirmative action programs, ruling Congress was limited by the same strict standards as states in offering special help to minorities. Air Force Captain Scott O'Grady, rescued after being shot down over Bosnia, was treated to lunch at the White House and a hero's welcome at the Pentagon.
