1980: John Lennon shot dead
Former Beatle John Lennon was shot dead by an unknown gunman who opened fire outside the musician's New York apartment.
The 40-year-old was shot several times as he entered the Dakota, his luxury apartment building on Manhattan's Upper West Side, opposite Central Park, at 23:00 local time.
He was rushed in a police car to St Luke's Roosevelt Ho...
In days of old, shot for rifles was made in the "Shot Tower." Molten lead was dropped from the top of the tower into a vat of water at the bottom. The lead droplets, like raindrops, would form into perfect spheres, cool and solidify as they fell into the cooling water vat below.
This base has gone through an extensive history, first being one of Saddam's palaces, then being partly responsible for the War in Iraq, then becoming Cobra Base, then Camp Victory, and finally was known as Camp Liberty.
