Almanac – June 19th

1820 – A baton was first used to conduct an orchestra in England, by Ludwig Spohr.

1862 – Slavery became illeagal in US territories.

1963Valentina Nicolayeva Tereshkova completed the first space mission by a woman, having circled the Earth 48 times in Vostok VI. There seems to be evidence that she wasn’t actually the first female cosmonaut, but was certainly the first to get back alive.
