1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

Age 1

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.

Age 9

Besides farming and shipping with the trolley up to Ogden Valley, there was an effort to convince the state of Utah to have a summer capitol near the town of Huntsville. Even though it didn’t happen, the Ogden Rapid Transit Company extended the Trolley route to Huntsville, so others could vacation there.

Age 20

The Prohibition Era. Sale and manufacture of alcoholic liquors outlawed. A mushrooming of illegal drinking joints, home-produced alcohol and gangsterism.
