Germany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6868 words)
The medieval empire stemmed from a division of the Carolingian Empire in 843, which was founded by Charlemagne on 25 December 800, and existed in varying forms until 1806, its territory stretching from the Eider River in the north to the Mediterranean coast in the south.
Often referred to as the Holy Roman Empire (or the Old Empire), it was officially called the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation ("Sacrum Romanum Imperium Nationis Germanicæ") starting in 1448, to adjust the title to its then reduced territory.
The empire was a unification of all the scattered parts of Germany except Austria (Kleindeutschland, or "Lesser Germany").
New York Yankees (1903-Present) (11179 words)
Game 1 and 4 were close, the Yankees won each by one run, including win the final game in walk off fashion after Pirates pitcher Johnny Miljus uncorked a wild pitch in the bottom of the 9th.
The game was dubbed the All Star Game, and appropriately enough the star that shinned brightest was the Babe who hit the first Home Run in All Star history and aided the AL to a 4-2 win.
In Game 6 it was Martin who drove in the series' winning run in the bottom of the 9th of Game 6 to send the Yankees on to their 5th straight World Series, and 16th title over all.
