It's January 3rd already. Time moves so quickly. But what happened in years past on this same date? In 1521, Martin Luther was excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church. In 1938, the "March of Dimes" campaign to fight polio was established. In 1959, President Eisenhower signed a proclamation admitting Alaska to the Union as the 49th state.

The March of Dimes was likely a result of FDR's polio.

You are probably right about that . A neighbor of mine had polio when I lived in West Virginia in the 1950s

I'm not sure what that means about Martin Luther but the rest are very important things in history that happened on this date.

Martin Luther of the 16th century objected to the Catholic church's teachings so they kicked him out or shunned him.
