1862 · The Dakota Conflict/War

Age 2

The Dakota War was an armed conflict between the United States and several bands of Dakota Native Americans. It began along the Minnesota River four years after Minnesota was admitted as a state. The Dakota made attacks on hundreds of settlers, which resulted in their deaths. A military tribunal sentenced 303 Dakota men to death for their crimes but 264 of them were exonerated. The remaining 38 were apart of a mass hanging on December 26 that same year. It was the largest mass execution in United States history.

Age 3

Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
1883 · The Newhall House Hotel Fire

Age 23

A fire erupted on January 10, 1883, at the Newhall Hotel in Milwaukee. The fire began at 4:00 am in an elevator shaft and raced up through the building. The fire spread so quickly that many could not escape. General and Mrs. Tom Thumb, stars of P.T. Barnum's circus, were guests in the hotel at the time of the fire. A firefighter reached them by ladder and they were able to escape safely. The exact number of deaths remains unknown as the hotel register was destroyed in the fire, however, the death toll is estimated between 75-90.
