On This Date
In 1692 – What would become the Salem (Massachusetts) Witch Trials begins when three women -Sarah Good, Sarah Osborne and a slave known only as Tituba – are brought before two local magistrates. History records that Tituba actually confessed, implicating Good and Osborne. All three would be tried and convicted of witchcraft. Good would be hanged in July, Osborne would die in jail in May and Tituba was ultimately released, sold to an anonymous buyer for the price of her jail fees.

In 1988 – Wayne Gretzky of the Edmonton Oilers has one goal and one assist as the Oilers defeat the Los Angeles Kings 5-3. The assist is Gretzky’s 1,050th of his career, breaking the all-time record that had been held by Gordie Howe. Gretzky would retire 1,963 assists, an NHL record that still stands. Howe’s mark of 1,049 assists is now good for 10th on the all-time list.

In 1975 – The Eagles are at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the only week with Best of My Love. Though initially hesitant to release it as a single, the song became the first of five #1 songs for the Eagles and also went to #1 in Canada. Best of My Love was the seventh of a Hot 100 of record twelve consecutive #1 songs that would spend only one week at #1.
