Image: Submarines UP CLOSE (Up Close (Sterling Hardcover)) | Hardcover: 28 pages | by Andra Serlin Abramson (Author). Publisher: Sterling (February 5, 2008)Submarine Day (1898)
-- Celebrates the day John Philip Holland, an Irish engineer, successfully demonstrated his submarine, the Holland VI. On March 17, 1898, his submarine made her first successful submerged run, impressing observers by the US Navy Department. John Philip Holland designed submarines which, for the first time, made use of internal combustion engines on the surface and electric battery power when submerged. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) made sketches of a submarine and William Bourne, a British mathematician, drew plans for a submarine in 1578. But it was only in 1620 that Cornelius van Drebbel, a Dutch inventor, managed to build a submarine. The first submarine used for military purposes was built in 1776 by David Bushnell (1742-1824) of the US. Two rival inventors from the US developed the first true submarines in the 1890s.

National Green Beer Day (1952)
- Green Beer Day is a holiday celebrated by students at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. It is often thought to be the best event which takes place during the school year. The holiday began in the early 1950s when the United States was experiencing grain shortages after World War II. A 1952 Miami University Student newspaper article says students would not be imbibing dark green-colored beer due to the lack of grain available to breweries for beer production.

Boys and Girls Campfire Founded (1910)
- Founded on March 17, 1910, in Thetford, Vermont, by Luther Gulick M.D. and his wife Charlotte Vedder Gulick. Camp Fire Girls, as it was known at the time, was created as the sister organization to the Boy Scouts of America. The organization changed its name in 1975 to Camp Fire Boys and Girls when membership eligibility was expanded to include boys.

Rubber Band Invented (1845)
- Stephen Perry, of the rubber manufacturing company Messers Perry and Co., invented the rubber band to hold papers or envelopes together. On March 17, 1845, Perry patented the rubber band. These first rubber bands were made of vulcanized rubber.

Doctor-Patient Trust Day
- Trust isn't just a warm and fuzzy feeling – it can result in serious health benefits. Patients who trust their doctor are more likely to take their medication, more likely to go in for follow-up care, and more likely to have their health needs met.
