2Day in History

Today is Saturday, Jan. 1, the first day of 2011. There are 364 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 1, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring that slaves in rebel states were free.

Ten years ago: It was announced that Tyson Foods Inc. would buy beef and pork giant IBP Inc. in a deal valued at $3.2 billion in cash and stock. (Tyson later tried to back out, but IBP sued, and a judge ordered Tyson to complete the deal.)

Five years ago: President George W. Bush strongly defended his domestic spying program, calling it legal as well as vital to thwarting terrorist attacks. One year ago: A suicide bomber detonated a truckload of explosives on a volleyball field in northwest Pakistan, killing at least 97 people.
