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.

Over the next few days, several thousand white men joined in and in the end, 26 people were killed and many were injured.

Age 24

To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations.
