Recent historic events have not been added to the calendars. This patch adds the September 11th attacks, the event that has sparked major changes not just for America, but across the middle-east as well.
Other events in recent history are also worthy of entry here. The two mentioned in this patch are the death of the Queen Mum and the death of Thomas Kelly, who lead the team that built the LM for the Apollo program.
Surely, there are more. These are but three that have touched me.
