End of the Middle Ages Day

May 29, 1453 is considered by many historians to be the end of the Middle Ages, and therefore the beginning of the Renaissance. On this day the city of Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire after being under siege for about two months. This eventually led to a revival of learning based on classic Greek sources which in turn started the Renaissance period of history.

P.S. Today is also Memorial Day. RIP fallen soldiers…

On This Day in History – May 16

Today on May 16, 1975 the first woman conquered Mount Everest! Her name is/was Junko Tabei. The journey was 22 years after Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first to reach the summit.

Speaking of long hikes, I’m planning on going to Great Falls next month so stay tuned for some pictures in a couple of weeks.
