[read] In 1946, President Harry S. Truman seized control of the nation's railroads, delaying but not preventing a threatened strike by engineers and trainmen. In 1961, Cuban leader Fidel Castro offered to release prisoners captured in the Bay of Pigs invasion in exchange for 500 bulldozers. (The prisoners were eventually freed in exchange for medical supplies.) In 1973, a special committee convened by the U.S. Senate began its televised hearings into the Watergate scandal. In 1974, four car bombs exploded in Dublin and Monaghan, Ireland, killing links 33 people (the Ulster Volunteer Force claimed responsibility two decades later). In 1980, rioting that claimed 18 lives erupted in Miami's Liberty City after an all-white jury in Tampa acquitted four former Miami police officers of fatally beating black insurance executive Arthur McDuffie. In 1987, 37 American sailors were killed when an Iraqi warplane attacked the U.S. Navy frigate Stark in the Persian Gulf.
