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

Age 14

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.
1879 · New State Capitol Building Dedicated

Age 25

After the second state capitol had been destroyed, Michigan Governor Henry P. Baldwin initiated the passing of a bill that would cover the costs for a new building. The bill was adopted and raised over $1 million by a six year state income tax. Architect Elijah E. Myers' design named Tuebor, or I will defend, was selected and he was commissioned to design the new capitol building. The renaissance revival brick and sandstone building soared 267 feet from the ground and was dedicated on January 1, 1879.
