1906 · The Atlanta Race Riot

Age 9

The Atlanta Race Riot of 1906 occurred on the evening of September 22 through September 24. A newspaper reported the rapes of four white women by African American men. Fueled by pre-existing racial tensions, these reports enraged white men who then arranged gangs to attack African American men. Over the next few days, several thousand white men joined in and in the end, 26 people were killed and many were injured.


Age 20

U.S. intervenes in World War I, rejects membership of League of Nations.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish: from Middle English wode ‘wood’ + side ‘side, hillside’ (Old English wudu + sīde). There are a number of minor places called Woodside, such as Woodside in Caddington (Hertfordshire) and Woodside in Bierley (Yorkshire), though their earliest forms tend to be from late medieval or post-medieval times, and so the surname is probably topographic. In Scotland the surname is from any of several places called Woodside, such as the one in Ayrs, and has the same etymology.
