Oh, and back on the 19th of January...
1847 - Charles Bent, New Mexico pioneer (assassinated)

Has anyone thought to mention that Charles Bent was the appointed governor of the newly-formed New Mexico Territory, or that he was assassinated during the Taos Revolution? (Incidentally, the succession box at the bottom of the Charles Bent article is wrong: Stephen W. Kearny succeeded Juan Bautista Vigil y Alarid, as a military governor, before appointing Charles Bent as a civilian governor.)
