Age 1

Yellowstone National Park was given the title of the first national park by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant. It is also believed to be the first national park in the world.

Age 8

Thomas Edison had been seeking to create a more practical and affordable version of the lightbulb, primarily for home use. Edison had attempted several different materials, including platinum and other metals, before ultimately deciding on a carbon filament. On October 21, 1879, Edison finally carried out the first successful test of this new light bulb in Menlo Park, New Jersey.

Age 23

Mary Philbrook was the first woman in New Jersey to become a lawyer. She had applied for admission to the New Jersey Bar in 1894, but was rejected because the New Jersey Court stated that women were not vested with any right to be attorneys. Mary lobbied with the Jersey City Woman's Club for an update to the law, which was passed in 1895 and allowed women to become lawyers. Mary Philbrook was the first woman to be admitted after the law change.
