In 1945, Iva Toguri D'Aquino, a Japanese-American suspected of being wartime broadcaster "Tokyo Rose," was arrested in Yokohama. Convicted of treason because she was still a U.S. citizen, D'Aquino served six years in prison; she was pardoned in 1977 by President Ford.
In 1905, the Treaty of Portsmouth, ending the Russo-Japanese War, was signed in New Hampshire.
In 1977, the U.S. launched the Voyager I spacecraft two weeks after launching its twin, Voyager II.
