On March 27th, the first Mormon temple was dedicated in Ohio. This is only one of the many historical events that occurred on March 27th. Russ Mitchell recaps these events for us in this video clip from This Day In History. In addition to the temple dedication, Marlon Brando refused an Oscar for his role in the Godfather which raised eyebrows. Also, President Andrew Johnson vetoed a Civil Rights Bill that would later become the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. Finally, the pill Viagra was approved by the FDA.
