  • Taking the plunge: On this day in 1901, the first barrel ride down Niagara Falls occurred. A 63-year-old schoolteacher named Annie Edson Taylor took the plunge in wooden pickle barrel. She survived the trip, although she was a bit battered, and landed ashore after a 20-minute ride. Going over the Falls in any way, shape or form, is illegal. But that hasn’t stopped many a cartoon character from following Taylor’s lead.
