1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

Age 2

Alcatraz Island officially became Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on August 11, 1934. The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable. Alcatraz became known as the toughest prison in America and was seen as a “last resort prison.” Therefore, Alcatraz housed some of America’s most notorious prisoners such as Al Capone and Robert Franklin Stroud. Due to the exorbitant cost of running the prison, and the deterioration of the buildings due to salt spray, Alcatraz Island closed as a penitentiary on March 21, 1963. 
1935 · The FBI is Established

Age 3

1951 · The Twenty-Second Amendment

Age 19

Before the Twenty-second Amendment, the Presidency didn’t have a set number limit on how many times they could be elected or re-elected to the office of President of the United States. The Amendment sets that limit to two times, consecutively or not, and sets additional conditions for presidents who succeed to the unexpired terms of their predecessors.
