I'm currently writing an application which displays historic events happening on this actual day. (So say, today is October 1st, the application displays events from the past which also happened on October 1st).
What do you call such a thing? I Germany we call it a "Kalenderblatt" (Calendar sheet), because such information was printed on the back of (daily-) calendar sheets. Is there such a word in English? What would be the best title for such an Application? I selected "Today in History", is this appropriate? I thought of "Historic events", but this doesn't imply the relevance for today. "On This Day" also came to my mind.
If so, what would you write for "Today in History" in the application-title? Capitalized "Today In History"?
Another question on the same application: Does the sentence "150 years ago today: Something happened" sound better than "Today, 150 years ago: Something happened". So, where to put the "today"? Does this sentence make sense (in the context explained above?)
