On this day in 2013, actor James Gandolfini passed away from a heart attack, after spending the day sightseeing in extreme heat while on vacation with his family in Rome. He was 51 years old. 
Gandolfini had a number of roles under his belt, including 'True Romance', 'Terminal Velocity', 'Get Shorty', 'Crimson Tide', William Friedkin's TV movie remake of '12 Angry Men', '8mm', 'Where the Wild Things Are', 'The Taking of Pelham 123', and 'Zero Dark Thirty'. His most recent movie was the 2014 film 'The Drop', based on the novel of the same name by Dennis Lehane. 
Of course, Gandolfini will always be remembered for his most important and star-making role as mob boss Tony Soprano on the seminal @hbo series ‘The Sopranos’. The show really allowed Gandolfini to showcase his range as an actor, as Tony was everything from menacing to sweet, from charming and funny to neurotic and sensitive.

#OnThisDay June 19, 1864, the Battle of Cherbourg was fought off of the coast of France. During this battle, the USS Kearsarge succeeded at sinking the CSS Alabama, making the engagement a decisive Union victory. As the Alabama sank, the captain of the USS Kearsarge, John Winslow arranged for the rescue of its remaining Confederate crew. After rescuing seventy or so of the crew by bringing them aboard the Kearsarge, Winslow enlisted the help of a nearby British yacht, the Deerhound to save the rest. The Deerhound picked up the remaining Confederate sailors, including the captain of the Alabama, Raphael Semmes. Instead of delivering the men to the Kearsarge for capture, the Deerhound instead returned to England, allowing Semmes and the rest of the Confederate crew to avoid Union capture.

#Onthisday in 1865, enslaved African Americans were notified of their freedom by Union troops in Galveston Bay, TX—two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued.

Known as #Juneteenth, this day is widely celebrated as the end of chattel slavery in the U.S. Juneteenth marks our country’s second independence day. Though it has long been celebrated among the African American community, it is a history that has been marginalized and still remains largely unknown to the wider public. The legacy of Juneteenth shows the value of deep hope and urgent organizing in uncertain times. 
This Museum is a community space where that spirit can continue to live on – where histories like this one can surface, and new stories with equal urgency can be told. #APeoplesJourney #ANationsStory 📸: Juneteenth Emancipation Day Celebration, June 19, 1900, Texas, Courtesy Austin History Center.

Happy 67th birthday to horror icon Daria Nicolodi! Daria starred in Dario Argento's Deep Red, Inferno, Tenebrae, Phenomena, and Opera, and co-wrote Suspiria. She was also in Mario Bava's final flick, Shock. Later in her life, she returned to the horror scene, and you can see her in Dario Argento's 2007 film, The Mother of Tears, with their daughter, Asia Argento. #onthisday #darianicolodi #celebritybirthday #Horror #darioargento #asiaargento #mariobava #graywhaleslc

"llegamos con una mano adelante y otra mano atrás, mis viejos sin saber una palabra de castellano, pero poco a poco empezaron a trabajar, les iba bastante bien...
hice un libro que se llamó 'raíces' para que esto no se repita y para que no pase nunca más"

saludos a enrique engel quien #undiacomohoy nació en 1937 en alemania. con solo 2 años, escapó junto a sus padres a chile y recopiló todas las cartas de sus parientes que recibía su madre. escribió un libro autobiográfico para preservar la memoria de su experiencia familiar.

These three buildings— a blacksmith shop (Pic 3) that was used as a rendezvous for Col. John S. Mosby's rangers, the smith's house (Pic 2), and a tavern (Pic 4)—were standing here on the Ashby's Gap Turnpike during the Battle of Middleburg #OTD in 1863.
—
Two days after the Battle of Aldie, cavalry troopers clashed again here as Confederate Gen. J.E.B Stuart continued to screen Gen. Robert E. Lee's march north from probing Union cavalry. Two Confederate artillery batteries were posted here and aimed east toward the Federals. After an artillery duel in the morning, Union Gen. David McMurtrie Gregg advanced two Union brigades across open fields, meeting determined resistance. Then they reached the woods on the ridge at Mount Defiance. The mounted and dismounted Federals fought their way southward through the woods, driving the Confederates
