On this day in history: May 3, 1945 - British torpedo bombers attack the Cap Arcona and the Thielbek in the Baltic Sea. Both vessels are flying white flags, as there are almost 7,000 concentration camp prisoners aboard. In the process of abandoning ship, the German captain of the Arcona uses a machete to hack his way through the mass of people. When the ships sink, virtually all of the prisoners drown, making this the single largest loss of life in the history of ocean travel.
Born on this day in history: May 3, 1933 - James Brown (1933 - 2006) Born in Barnwell, South Carolina, musician James Brown is one of the most significant figures in Motown. Combining gospel and blues roots with a distinctive performing style, Brown earned the title "The Godfather of Soul." In the 1970s, he was one of the first black entertainers to take control of his own career.
