1898 · War with the Spanish

Age 2

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.
1903

Age 7

The Public Service Corporation (PSC) was formed on May 6, 1903. The company began as a merger of a power company with four different trolley companies. PSC would ultimately combine with over 400 other companies.
1916

Age 20

During a deadly heat wave, thousands of residents were at the seaside resorts of Jersey Shore. Between July 1 and July 2 of 1916, five different people were attacked by sharks, and four of them ultimately died. Scientific knowledge about sharks was limited at this time, so these tragic incidents started a wave of "shark panic" that was spread by telephone calls, letters, newspapers, and other media.
