Today’s Holiday: Chief Seattle Days


Today’s Holiday:
Chief Seattle Days

This three-day inter-tribal festival honors Chief Seattle (1786-1866), for whom Seattle, Washington, is named. He was head of the Suquamish and Duwamish Indian tribes in the Puget Sound area of Washington.

Today’s Birthday: Antonio Salieri (1750)


Today’s Birthday:
Antonio Salieri (1750)

Italian composer and conductor Antonio Salieri moved to Vienna, Austria, in 1766 with his music teacher, imperial court composer Florian Gassmann.
