1881 · The Assassination of James Garfield

Age 2

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.
1898 · The Ogden Utah Sugar Factory Opens

Age 19

The Ogden Utah Sugar Factory harvested sugar from beets because sugar cane was hard to grow in northern Utah. During World War, it was hard to get sugar beet seeds, so the company started to harvest the seeds of the beets they were using. The Company merged with a factory in Logan to create the Amalgamated Sugar Company which is still operational today.
1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

Age 22

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.
