October 28th is the 301st day of the Gregorian calendar. On this day Elvis Presley received a polio vaccination on national television; Italian fascists led by Benito Mussolini marched on Rome and took over the Italian government, and then U.S. President Grover Cleveland dedicated the Statue of Liberty. Famous October 28th birthdays include Bill Gates and Julia Roberts. Today is National Immigrants Day and National Chocolate Day.
