Battle of Little Bighorn, which happened on this day in 1876. If General Custer was anything like Kevin Thompson, then I can understand Mack's good mood here.
Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Boxing Daria," which aired on this day in 2001. There weren't any epic battles or charges, but Daria did end up in a horrific multi-car crackup, whispering Tom's name over and over in a desperate bid not to slip into a coma. Oh, wait. That was only in Tom's imagination.
- And You Are? (Iron Chef : Daria and Helen have the same age), by neonhomer (part 2): "Helen sat up, and shook her head, trying to clear the fog in her mind. 'What a nightmare!' As she forced herself to focus, she could see she was sitting on what seemed like a park bench. 'Where am I?'"

- Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (parts 16c and 17): "When they reached Sonora, they didn't go directly to their motel; instead Jake drove to the caverns. The caverns weren't actually in the town of Sonora, but west of it. To get to the Caverns, they had to drive west of town on Interstate 10 for 14 miles." (Part 17)
- Decisions, by elainefr (part 16): "'I have something to tell- well, show you- and don't freak out okay?' Daria said into the phone that she held level with her face."

- Of Inhuman Bonding, by Kristen Bealer (part 3): "'...and no one told her! She did the entire interview with a giant hunk of spinach wedged between her teeth!'
