This Day In History: Sept. 3, 2014 | News-gazette.com

Today's Highlight in History: On Sept. 3, 1939, Britain, France, Australia and New Zealand declared war on Germany, two days after the Nazi invasion of Poland; in a radio address, Britain's King George VI said, "With God's help, we shall prevail." The same day, a German U-boat torpedoed and sank the British liner SS Athenia some 250 miles off the Irish coast, killing more than 100 out of the 1,400 or so people on board. On this date: In 1189, England's King Richard I (the Lion-Hearted) was crowned in Westminster Abbey. In 1658, Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector of England, died in London; he was succeeded by his son, Richard. In 1783, representatives of the United States and Britain signed the Treaty of Paris, which officially ended the Revolutionary War. In 1868, the Japanese city of Edo was renamed Tokyo. In 1914, Cardinal Giacomo Della Chiesa became pope; he took the name Benedict XV. In 1923, the United States and Mexico resumed diplomatic relations. In 1944, British forces liberated Brussels during World War II. In 1951, the television soap opera "Search for Tomorrow" made its debut on CBS. In 1967, the original version of the television game show "What's My Line?," hosted by John Charles Daly, broadcast its final episode after more than 17 years on CBS. In 1976, America's Viking 2 lander touched down on Mars to take the first close-up, color photographs of the planet's surface. In 1989, a Cubana de Aviacion jetliner crashed after takeoff in Havana, killing all 126 aboard and 45 people on the ground. In 1994, China and Russia proclaimed an end to any lingering hostilities, pledging they would no longer target nuclear missiles or use force against each other. Ten years ago: A three-day hostage siege at a school in Beslan, Russia, ended in bloody chaos after Chechen militants set off bombs as Russian commandos stormed the building; more than 330 people, over half of them children, were killed.
