    1881 · The Assassination of James Garfield

    Age 3

    Garfield was shot twice by Charles J. Guitea at Railroad Station in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1881. After eleven weeks of intensive and other care Garfield died in Elberon, New Jersey, the second of four presidents to be assassinated, following Abraham Lincoln.

    1884 · There is now a Capital Building

    Age 6

    The capitol building in Des Moines originally had a budget of $1,500,000 but complications arose because of the need of a redesign. The building was dedicated on January 17, 1884, but it wasn’t completed until 1886. On January 4, 1904, a fire started and swept through the areas that housed the Supreme Court and Iowa House of Representatives. A major restoration was performed and documented, with the addition of electrical lighting, elevators, and a telephone system. By the early 1980s, the sandstone exterior of the Capitol had started deteriorating and prompted the installation of canopies to protect pedestrians from falling rubble. The entire reconstruction process took around 18 years to complete.

    1890 · The Sherman Antitrust Act

    Age 12

    This Act tried to prevent the raising of prices by restricting trade. The purpose of the Act was to preserve a competitive marketplace to protect consumers from abuse.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Bushey in Hertfordshire, so named with an Old English bysce or byxe ‘box’ + hæg ‘enclosure’.

    English: alternatively, a nickname from Middle English busshi ‘bushy, shrub-like, overgrown’, probably in the sense ‘having long, thick hair’ (well recorded in 17th-century usage). These English surnames are now rare in Britain.

    Americanized form of French Boucher . Compare Boushey , Busha 1, Bushee , and Bushy .
