1855 · Lager Beer Riot

Age 5

The Lager Beer Riot came at a time in Chicago's history where large waves of Irish and German immigrants moved to the city. The Riot was started because the Mayor of the city renewed enforcement of an old liquor ordinance mandating that taverns be closed on Sundays and to raise the cost of a license to sell liquor from $50 to $300 each year. This didn't sit well with the German immigrants because they felt like it was directed towards them and their heritage. There was only one death throughout the time of the riot, though protesters claimed that it was more.

Age 13

Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
1867 · Sorry Mr. President, You can't do that.

Age 17

This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The Amendment was later repealed.
