    It would be nice, as a module on sidebar. (for xenporta or another) It would connect a source or we can manually add events.

    Not quite a full blown add-on and you may already have something like this... but here's a quicky I whipped up:
    A feed from: http://www.brainyhistory.com/link/
    ___________________________________________________

    1.) Create new template called "todayinhistory"

    2.) Insert the following code in the new "todayinhistory" template:

    Code:
    <div class="section">
        <div class="secondaryContent">
    <h3>Today in History</h3>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://rss.brainyhistory.com/link/historyevents.js"></script><small><i>more <a href="http://www.brainyhistory.com/" target="_blank">History</a></i></small>
    
        </div>
    </div>
    
    Then go to page_container:

    3.) Find:
    Code:
    {xen:raw $sidebar}
    
    4.) Right after put:

    Code:
    <xen:include template="todayinhistory" />
    
    With this you get:
    today.png
