1867 · Sorry Mr. President, You can't do that.

Age 0

This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The Amendment was later repealed.
1879 · New State Capitol Building Dedicated

After the second state capitol had been destroyed, Michigan Governor Henry P. Baldwin initiated the passing of a bill that would cover the costs for a new building. The bill was adopted and raised over $1 million by a six year state income tax. Architect Elijah E. Myers' design named Tuebor, or I will defend, was selected and he was commissioned to design the new capitol building. The renaissance revival brick and sandstone building soared 267 feet from the ground and was dedicated on January 1, 1879.
1903 · Ford Motor Company

Age 36

"Henry Ford built his first gasoline-powered vehicle, named the Quadricycle, in 1896, at his home in Detroit. Ford sold the Quadricycle for $200 and used the money to build a second car. In 1901, Ford raced his car ""Sweepstakes"" against Alexander Winton and won. The victory resulted in publicity for Ford which allowed him to gain investors for his new company, Ford Motor Company. The first Model A was sold on July 23, 1903, and the company was incorporated on November 13, 1903."
