December 2, 1859 – Militant abolitionist leader John Brown is hanged for his October 16th raid on Harper's Ferry. Ironically, he had been captured by a small group of Marines led by Robert E. Lee. Present at his execution were, among others, Stonewall Jackson and, oddly enough John Wilkes Booth. One wonders if this incident was in part responsible for Booth's attitude of hatred towards the North, which culminated in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
December 3, 1984 – Bhopal Disaster: A methyl isocyanate leak from a Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal, India, kills more than 3,800 people outright and injures 150,000–600,000 others (some 6,000 of whom would later die from their injuries) in one of the worst industrial disasters in history.
