Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
1868 · The Railroad Refrigerator Car

Age 12

During the mid-19th century, attempts were made to ship perishable products by rail. The Western Railroad of Massachusetts was the first to experiment with the concept, but it was only functional in cold weather. In 1868, William Davis, of Detroit, patented a refrigerator car that used a frozen mixture of ice and salt to keep everything cold for shipment. It could be used in all weather and in all seasons. He sold the design to George H. Hammond, a Detroit meat packer, who built a set of cars to transport his products to Boston using ice from the Great Lakes for cooling.
1881 · The Assassination of James Garfield

Age 25

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.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish: occupational name for a tailor, from Old French tailleur (Late Latin taliator, from taliare ‘to cut’). The surname is extremely common in Britain and Ireland, and its numbers have been swelled by its adoption as an Americanized form of the numerous equivalent European names, most of which are also very common among Ashkenazic Jews, for example Schneider , Szabó , and Portnov .
