This Day in History - Video Website
There are plenty of sites that give you what happened in history, but the History Channel's one gives you a short video you could show your students as you can see from this link. One of the things it discusses is that Patty Hearst was kidnapped on February 4, 1974 - an event I well remember to this day. You could tie it into the Progressive era when her grandfather was one of the leading yellow journalists esp. regarding the USS Maine in Havana harbor.
