1872 · Montgomery Ward Inc.
Age 3
Montgomery Ward was founded by Aaron Montgomery Ward after he observed that rural customers often wanted goods from the city but couldn’t get them because of distance and cost. Ward believed that he could cut costs and make a wide variety of goods available to rural customers. Ward and two partners used $1,600 to issue the first catalog in August 1872 and with its publication, rural retailers considered Ward a threat and publicly burned his catalog. Despite the opposition, however, the business grew at a fast pace over the next several decades and was almost as successful as Sears. In April 1944, U.S. Army troops seized the Chicago offices of Montgomery Ward & Company after President Roosevelt ordered it because of an unsettled strike request made by the workers. Eight months later, with Montgomery Ward continuing to refuse to recognize the unions, President Roosevelt issued an executive order seizing all of Montgomery Ward's property nationwide. 
Age 21
Young William (Wilhelm) II dismisses Bismarck.
