Sometimes when I run out of clever things to say in my daily Wordle guide, or have nothing much to ruminate over, or am simply tired or lazy or have a bit of writer’s block, I turn to history for help. On this day—September 3rd—throughout history, these major historical events occurred:
- 1189 – Richard the Lionheart was crowned King of England at Westminster Abbey.
- 1658 – Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, died.
- 1783 – The Treaty of Paris was signed, officially ending the American Revolutionary War and recognizing the United States’ independence from Great Britain.
- 1838 – Frederick Douglass escaped from slavery in Maryland and went on to become a prominent abolitionist and civil rights activist.
- 1939 – World War II began when Britain and France declared war on Germany following the invasion of Poland.
- 1943 – Allied forces liberated Naples, Italy, during World War II.
- 1967 – The Swedish driving law switched from driving on the left side of the road to driving on the right side, known as Dagen H (“H Day”).
- 1976 – Viking 2, an American spacecraft, landed on Mars and transmitted images and data back to Earth.
- 2004 – The Beslan school siege in North Ossetia, Russia, ended tragically with the deaths of over 330 people, mostly children.
- 2017 – North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, leading to international condemnation and tensions.

Wordle Bot Analysis
After each Wordle I solve I head over to the Wordle Bot homepage to see how my guessing game was.
I didn’t start off that well today. Trope only got me one yellow box and 151 words remained. But chain slashed that number down to just two. I actually only came up with await but Wordle Bot informed me later that staid was also an option. Fortunately for me, I was right!
I get 1 point for guessing in three but 0 points for tying Wordle Bot, so 1 point total. Huzzah!
Today’s Wordle Etymology
The word “await” has its origins in the Old English language. It is derived from the Old English word “āwæitan,” which is a combination of “ā” (meaning “on”) and “wæitan” (meaning “to watch” or “to wait”). Over time, the word evolved and simplified into “await” in modern English.
