Trolling history

Current events not enough to inspire your next story? How about trolling history? For example, the History Channel website lists the following interesting events for March 1st.

1961: President Kennedy establishes the Peace Corps

1932: The Lindbergh baby is kidnapped

1910: Trains are buried by an avalanche in Wellington, Washington

1692: The Salem Witch Hunt begins

1872: Yellowstone Park is established

1917: The Zimmerman Telegram (proposing an alliance between Germany-Mexico against the US) is published in US newspapers

Even if you don’t write historical settings, past events might spark a new idea. Play with it. Have fun!
