1898 · The Kensington Runestone

A Swedish man, Olof Ohman, was farming on his land when he came across a 202-pound rock slab that had strange writing on it. Convinced it was proof that Scandinavian explorers came to that area before Columbus found the Americas, he had it looked at by scholars and linguists to find its translation. There has been a drawn-out debate on the stone's authenticity, with a scholarly consensus that classifies it as a hoax and the community which is convinced that it is authentic.

1913 · The Sixteenth Amendment

The Sixteenth Amendment allows Congress to collect an income tax without dividing it among the states based on population.
