1884 · There is now a Capital Building

Age 1

The capitol building in Des Moines originally had a budget of $1,500,000 but complications arose because of the need of a redesign. The building was dedicated on January 17, 1884, but it wasn’t completed until 1886. On January 4, 1904, a fire started and swept through the areas that housed the Supreme Court and Iowa House of Representatives. A major restoration was performed and documented, with the addition of electrical lighting, elevators, and a telephone system. By the early 1980s, the sandstone exterior of the Capitol had started deteriorating and prompted the installation of canopies to protect pedestrians from falling rubble. The entire reconstruction process took around 18 years to complete.
1886

Age 3

Statue of Liberty is dedicated.
1896 · Plessy vs. Ferguson

Age 13

A landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of racial segregation laws for public facilities if the segregated facilities were equal in quality. It's widely regarded as one of the worst decisions in U.S. Supreme Court history.

Name Meaning

English: from Middle English pe, pa, po ‘peacock’, with the later disambiguating addition of cok ‘male bird’, hence a nickname for a vain, strutting person or for a dandy. In some cases it may be a habitational name from a house distinguished by the sign of a peacock. This surname is established in Ireland also.
