On #ThisDayinHistory 1953, Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a Nepalese Sherpa, become the f irst explorers to reach the summit of Mount Everest, which at 29,035 feet above sea level is the highest poi nt on earth: News of their achievement broke around the world on June 2, the day of Queen Elizabeth II ’s coronation, and Britons hailed it as a good omen for their country’s future #AceHistoryDe sk reports

#AceHistoryNews – May.29: Mount Everest sits on the crest of the Great Himalayas in Asia, lying on the border between Nepal and Tibet. Called Chomo-Lungma, or “Mother Goddess of the Land,” by the Tibetans, the English named the mountain after Sir George Everest, a 19th-century British surveyor of South Asia.

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8638: The first recorded attempt to climb Everest was made in 1921 by a British expedition that trekked 400 difficult miles across the Tibetan plateau to the foot of the great mountain: A raging storm forced them to abort their ascent, but the mountaineers, among them George Leigh Mallory, had seen what appeared to be a feasible route up the peak…………………It was Mallory who quipped when later asked by a journalist why he wanted to climb Everest, “Because it’s there.” Since Hillary and Norgay’s historic climb, numerous expeditions have made their way up to Everest’s summit……………………….In 1960, a Chinese expedition was the first to conquer the mountain from the Tibetan side, and in 1963 James Whittaker became the first American to top Everest: In 1975, Tabei Junko of Japan became the first woman to reach the summit………………Three years later, Reinhold Messner of Italy and Peter Habeler of Austria achieved what had been previously thought impossible: climbing to the Everest summit without oxygen. #MtEverest #TensingNorgay #EdmundHillary #history #Mountains #Tibet #Nepal #OTD #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1912, the RMS Titanic, billed as unsinkable, sinks into the icy waters of the North Atl antic after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage, killing 1,517 people: The Titanic was thought to be the world’s fastest ship and was seen as virtually unsinkable, but history attests to this as not being true even today #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Apr.15: On its first voyage, from Southampton, England, to New York with stops in Cherbourg, France, and Queenstown, Ireland, the Titanic was carrying 2,206 people, including a crew of 898: A relatively mild winter had produced a bumper crop of icebergs in the North Atlantic, but the crew, believing their ship was unsinkable, paid scant attention to warnings #AceNewsDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8334 On the night of Sunday, April 14, other ships in the area reported icebergs by radio, but their messages were not delivered to the bridge or the captain of the Titanic: The iceberg that struck the ship was spotted at 11:40 p.m: Although a dead-on collision was avoided, the Titanic‘s starboard side violently scraped the iceberg, ripping open six compartments……………The ship’s design could withstand only four compartments flooding………………Minutes later, the crew radioed for help, sending out an SOS signal, the first time the new type of help signal was used……………Ten minutes after midnight, the order for passengers to head for the lifeboats was given………………………..Unfortunately, there were only lifeboats for about half of the people on board…………………….Additionally, there had been no instruction or drills regarding such a procedure and general panic broke out on deck…………….The survivors–those who successfully made it onto the lifeboats–were largely women who were traveling first class. In fact, the third-class passengers were not even allowed onto the deck until the first-class female passengers had abandoned the ship. At 2:20 a.m., the Titanic finally sank…………….Breaking in half, it plunged downward to the sea floor………..Captain Edward Smith went down with the ship…………The Carpathia arrived about an hour later and rescued the 705 people who made it onto the lifeboats……….The people who were forced into the cold waters all perished: #Titanic #History #Unsinkable #OTD

On #ThisDayinHistory 1970, the world gets the first hints of The Beatles impending Break Up. Legendary rock band The Beatles began their meteoric rise to stardom in Liverpool in 1960, but, by the end of the decade, they had spent the better part of three years breaking up #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Apr.12: Each Beatle wanted to pursue solo projects, and conflict between members meant there were no plans to record as more albums as a band: On April 10th, 1970, Paul McCartney gave an ambiguous interview that lead the world to believe the Beatles were poised to break up #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8310 And, though at the time the breakup was unofficial, by year’s end, Paul would file suit to dissolve the Beatles’ business partnership. Their last performance together was a surprise concert in January 1969. #TheBeatles #JohnPaulGeorgeandRingo #FabFour #MusicHistory #OTD

ON #ThisDay Winston Churchill, the British leader who guided Great Britain through the crisis of World War II, was born 1874: Churchill came from a prestigious family with a long history of military service #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.30: He had an illustrious military career, serving in India, the Sudan, and South Africa In 1899, he resigned his commission, and in 1900 was elected to Parliament as a Conservative MP #AceNewsDesk reports

In 1915, the second year of World War I, Churchill was held responsible for the disastrous Dardanelles and Gallipoli campaigns, and was excluded from the war coalition government……..He resigned and volunteered to command an infantry battalion in France, but in 1917 returned to politics as a cabinet member in the government of Lloyd George…….After the outbreak of World War II in Europe, Churchill was called back to his post as First Lord of the Admiralty and eight months later replaced the Neville Chamberlain as prime minister of a new coalition government……..In the first year of his administration, Britain stood alone against Nazi Germany, but Churchill promised the country and the world that the British people would “never surrender.” He rallied the British people to a resolute resistance and expertly orchestrated Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin into an alliance that eventually crushed the Axis. In July 1945, 10 weeks after Germany’s defeat, his Conservative government suffered an electoral loss against Clement Attlee’s Labour Party, and Churchill resigned as prime minister………He became leader of the opposition and in 1951 was again elected prime minister……..Two years later, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his six-volume historical study of World War II and for his political speeches……..In 1955, he retired as prime minister but remained in Parliament until 1964, the year before his death #OTD #WinstonChurchill #WWII #BritishHistory #Parliament #AceHistoryNews
