The USS Jamestown embarrassed itself on this date. ::)

February 22, 1855
Philadelphia, Delaware River

At 10 Commander John Marston delivered the ship over to the command of Francis B Ellison. Hoisted the Colors and put the ship in commission.
 :D

At 11 Commodore Tho's Crabbe came on board and was received by Commander F.B. Ellison and the officers of the ship. At 11 15 on the last of the ebb, cast off from the Navy Yard in tow of a steam tug. Parted the Hawser in towing and grounded immediately. At 12 cast off from the steam tug finding it impossible to move the ship.

It's just butter-side-down law! Typical for all of that to happen when there's top brass around  ;D

Check out Old Weather Talk > Contributions to History > This day in history...

My two favorites were the log keepers who celebrated the New Year by entering a whole comment page in poetry instead of prose, tho we didn't know of them in time for you to use that day.
