    1906 · The Atlanta Race Riot

    Age 10

    The Atlanta Race Riot of 1906 occurred on the evening of September 22 through September 24. A newspaper reported the rapes of four white women by African American men. Fueled by pre-existing racial tensions, these reports enraged white men who then arranged gangs to attack African American men. Over the next few days, several thousand white men joined in and in the end, 26 people were killed and many were injured.


    Age 24

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

    Name Meaning

    History: Anne Marbury Hutchinson (1591–1643) and her husband William came from Lincolnshire, England, to MA in 1634. A religious dissident, she led the first attack on the Puritans and was banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. She moved to RI in 1638, and, after her husband's death in 1642, settled in NY, where the Hutchinson River was named in her honor. Ironically, the Hutchinson name stayed on in MA and one of her descendants, Thomas Hutchinson (1711–80), was royal governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony.
