World Events (8)

1881 · The Assassination of James Garfield

Age 1

Garfield was shot twice by Charles J. Guitea at Railroad Station in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1881. After eleven weeks of intensive and other care Garfield died in Elberon, New Jersey, the second of four presidents to be assassinated, following Abraham Lincoln.
1898 · Sinking of USS Maine

Age 18

During the Cuban War for Independence, the USS Maine had been sent to Havana to look out for the interests of the United States. On February 15, 1898, at approximately 21:40, an explosion on USS Maine was caused by roughly 5 long tons of powder. The front of the ship was demolished and the remains quickly sunk to the bottom of the ocean. 260 men lost their lives in the explosion itself, with at least six more dying afterwards from related injuries. The event kicked off an atmosphere of contention that would eventually lead to the Spanish-American War.
1905 · Squaw Mountain Fire Lookout

Age 25

In 1905, a fire lookout tower (among the first of its kind) was constructed in Piscataquis County on Squaw Mountain. Due to Maine's abundance of lumber and paper mills, it was essential that a system be developed to help spot fires as quickly as possible.
