This Day in History March 4, 1924

Today's feature really uncovered some interesting facts.  On this date in 1924, Robert H. Coleman actually published the song Happy Birthday to You for the first time.  No, he did not write the song, but he published it.  And I found it interesting that AOL Time Warner actually holds the copyright for this song.  and every time it is sung on television, movies, and even in restaurants, royalties are technically supposed to be paid to them.  This means that they are raking in two million dollars a year!  Wow!
