1867 · Sorry Mr. President, You can't do that.

Age 1

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 The Amendment was later repealed.
1868 · The Railroad Refrigerator Car

Age 2

During the mid-19th century, attempts were made to ship perishable products by rail. The Western Railroad of Massachusetts was the first to experiment with the concept, but it was only functional in cold weather. In 1868, William Davis, of Detroit, patented a refrigerator car that used a frozen mixture of ice and salt to keep everything cold for shipment. It could be used in all weather and in all seasons. He sold the design to George H. Hammond, a Detroit meat packer, who built a set of cars to transport his products to Boston using ice from the Great Lakes for cooling.
1889 · The first Skyscraper in Detroit

Age 23

The Hammond Building was a high-rise building completed in 1889 and was 151 feet tall. It's considered the first skyscraper in the city and was the tallest in Michigan after it was built. The Hammond Building was demolished in 1956 to make way for the National Bank of Detroit Building.
