World Events (8)

1872 · The Modoc War

Age 1

Hostilities between Modoc Indians and white settlers resulted in the Modoc War during 1872-1873. A Modoc band of nearly 200 people, led by Captain Jack Kintpuash, was fleeing a forced relocation to a reservation occupied by their enemies, the Klamaths. The band had returned to their former land on Lost River, which now had white settlers occupying the area. The conflict erupted on November 29, 1872, when 40 troops were sent to move the Modocs back to the reservation. An argument erupted and shots were fired. Several were killed and the Modocs fled to “The Stronghold,” a large, cavernous lava bed. The holdout went on for months with several clashes. On April 11, 1873, General Edward Richard Sprigg Canby and Reverend Eleazar Thomas were killed by the Modocs during a negotiation. The Modocs lacked resources and supplies and eventually surrendered on July 4. In total, 2 Modocs and 71 enlisted military men lost their lives.
1883 · The Newhall House Hotel Fire

Age 12

A fire erupted on January 10, 1883, at the Newhall Hotel in Milwaukee. The fire began at 4:00 am in an elevator shaft and raced up through the building. The fire spread so quickly that many could not escape. General and Mrs. Tom Thumb, stars of P.T. Barnum's circus, were guests in the hotel at the time of the fire. A firefighter reached them by ladder and they were able to escape safely. The exact number of deaths remains unknown as the hotel register was destroyed in the fire, however, the death toll is estimated between 75-90.
1906 · Great San Francisco Earthquake

Age 35

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook San Francisco for approximately 60 seconds on April 18, 1906. A 1906 report by US Army Relief Operations recorded the death toll for San Francisco and surrounding areas at 664. Later reports record the number at over 3,000 deaths. An estimated 225,000 people were left homeless from the widespread destructuction as 80% of the city was destroyed.

Name Meaning

1 English: from a medieval personal name brought to England by the Normans, of uncertain origin. It may be the Hebrew personal name Lot ‘covering’, which was relatively popular in northern France, or a reduced form of various names formed with the diminutive suffix -lot (originally a combination of -el + -ot), commonly used with women's names.2 English: from Middle English lot(t)e ‘lot’, ‘portion’ (Old English hlot), in the sense of an allotted share of land, hence a status name for someone who held such a plot.3 Dutch: metonymic occupational name for a plumber or lead roofer, from lood ‘lead’.
