World Events (8)

1828 · Michigan Capitol Building Constructed

Age 1

The first capitol building for Michigan was built in Detroit in 1828 and served the territory until it became a state in 1847. The old building was turned into a high school until it was demolished in 1893 after a fire engulfed the building. Today the land serves as a park for the community with a monument in remembrance of the first capitol building of Michigan.
1829 · Missouri State Library

Age 2

The first Missouri State Library was established by law on January 22, 1829. This law was created due to the large amount of public documents which had been collected in the office of Missouri's secretary of state. The library included documentation of the actions of the Missouri senate and house. The documents were cataloged and made available to the public. The public had access to any of the books in the library from sunup to sundown on any day except Sunday.
1854 · Creation of the Republican Party

Age 27

A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.
