This day in history

I have long found it slightly disturbing that Kate Moss and I share exactly the same birthday.

But Wikipedia also tells me that on this day:

- The title Augustus is bestowed upon Gaius Julius Caesar Octavian by the Roman Senate.
- Vermont declared its independence from New York.
- The United States ratified the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, authorizing Prohibition in the United States.
