It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 19, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Can't Feel My Face by The Weeknd. Room, directed by Lenny Abrahamson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Plunder And Deceit by Mark R. Levin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bloodbath Kavkaz or Code Name: S.T.E.A.M..
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at August 19 across the years.
