1942 · Germans Sink Ships Near St. Simons Island
Age 16
Lights from homes along the coast of St. Simons Island provided a clear view of the SS Oklahoma for German U-boat Captain Reinhard Hardegen on April 8, 1942. A German torpedo was fired at the SS Oklahoma shortly after midnight. An hour later, a second torpedo was fired at the oil tanker Esso Baton Rouge. Both ships sunk and the attacks left 22 seamen dead. After the incident, residents of the Golden Isles panicked over concern of a German Invasion of the coast and were stringently observant of a nighttime blackout.  
1965 · Stone Mountain Monument
Age 39
A memorial carving on the side of a quartz monzonite dome in Stone Mountain depicts Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson. The dome rises 825 feet above ground and is the largest bas-relief sculpture in the world. Stone Mountain Park opened on April 14, 1965, 100 years to the day of Lincoln’s assassination. The park spans 3,200 acres and is Georgia’s most popular attraction.
