World Events (8)

1896 · Plessy vs. Ferguson

Age 2

A landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of racial segregation laws for public facilities if the segregated facilities were equal in quality. It's widely regarded as one of the worst decisions in U.S. Supreme Court history.
1898 · The Kensington Runestone

Age 4

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.
1918 · Attempting to Stop the War

Age 24

To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.

Name Meaning
