1898 · War with the Spanish

After the explosion of the USS Maine in the Havana Harbor in Cuba, the United States engaged the Spanish in war. The war was fought on two fronts, one in Cuba, which helped gain their independence, and in the Philippines, which helped the US gain another territory for a time.

1906 · The Atlanta Race Riot

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.

1922 · Women Granted the Right to Vote

The 19th Amendment, which allowed women the right to vote, was passed and became federal law on August 26, 1920. Georgia law prevented women from voting until 1922. The amendment wasn’t officially ratified until 1970.

Name Meaning

English: ethnic name from Old French aleman(d) ‘German’ or alemayne meaning ‘from Germany’, which was called Almeyne in the 14th century (from Late Latin Alemannia, from an ancient Germanic tribal name that probably originally meant ‘all the men’; see Allemann ). In some cases the surname may be from the region of Normandy known as Allemagne (south of Caen), probably named as an ancient Germanic-speaking enclave in a Celtic area in Roman times.

English: variant of Oldman .

Americanized form of German Allmann or Ahlmann (see Ahlman 1), Swedish Ahlman 2, and Dutch, Flemish, or French Alleman . Compare Allmon .
