On this episode of This Day in History, Tony and Armand are here to tell us about the historical events, births, and deaths that have taken place on this day in history. On this day in 1803, the Supreme Court decides the case of Marbury v. Madison, in which the principle of judicial review is established under Article III of the Constitution. Also on this day in 1917, the U.S. ambassador to the U.K. is given the Zimmermann Telegram, often called the Zimmermann Note, in which Germany proposes to ally with Mexico and return to them the lost territories of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona in the event of the U.S. entering into WWI.
Happy Birthday to Wilhelm Karl Grimm, Honus Wagner, and Steve Jobs.
