    1851 · First State to Attempt Prohibition
    Age 1
    In 1851, Maine outlawed the sale of alcohol, allowing exceptions only for "medicinal, mechanical, and manufacturing purposes". This made Maine the first state to experiment with prohibition. Neal Dow, mayor of Portland, believed that alcohol was linked to slavery and was also convinced by the Christian temperance movement. Dow ran into problems later for his anti-immigration rhetoric against the Irish, and also for breaking his own prohibition laws; although not a designated "purchaser", Dow personally purchased alcohol to distribute to local doctors, violating a technicality. As the citizens turned against him, Dow eventually ordered soldiers to fire on protesters. This marked a sharp decline in Dow's political career, and the Maine Law was repealed by 1856. Aspects of the law would remain in tact, however, and ultimately paved the way for the 18th Amendment, which prohibited alcohol on the national level.
    Age 13
    Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
    1870 · The Fifteenth Amendment
    Age 20
    Prohibits the federal government and each state from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's race, color, or previous condition of servitude. It was the last of the Reconstruction Amendments.
