The first American raid on Berlin during World War II occurred on March 6th according to Russ Mitchell in this video clip from "This Day in History". Along with this first raid, Bayer trademarked the name aspirin which became a miracle drug. However the trademark eventually expired, and the name became universal. Famous TV person Walter Cronkite made his last appearance on television this day, and inventor Clarence Birdseye introduced the first pre-packaged, frozen foods to the American people on this day.
