World Events (8)

1872 · The First National Park

Age 1

Yellowstone National Park was given the title of the first national park by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant. It is also believed to be the first national park in the world.
1872 · Montgomery Ward Inc.

Age 1

Montgomery Ward was founded by Aaron Montgomery Ward after he observed that rural customers often wanted goods from the city but couldn’t get them because of distance and cost. Ward believed that he could cut costs and make a wide variety of goods available to rural customers. Ward and two partners used $1,600 to issue the first catalog in August 1872 and with its publication, rural retailers considered Ward a threat and publicly burned his catalog. Despite the opposition, however, the business grew at a fast pace over the next several decades and was almost as successful as Sears. In April 1944, U.S. Army troops seized the Chicago offices of Montgomery Ward & Company after President Roosevelt ordered it because of an unsettled strike request made by the workers. Eight months later, with Montgomery Ward continuing to refuse to recognize the unions, President Roosevelt issued an executive order seizing all of Montgomery Ward's property nationwide. 
1893 · The World's Columbian Exposition

Age 22

The  Chicago World's Fair was held to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the New World. The centerpiece of the Fair was a large water pool that represented Columbus's voyage across the Atlantic to the Americas. The Fair had a profound effect on new architecture designs, sanitation advancement, and the arts. The Fairgrounds were given the nickname the White City due to its lavish paint and materials used to construct it. Over 27 million people attended the fair during its six-month of operation. Among many of the inventions exhibited there was the first Ferris wheel built to rival the Eiffel Tower in France.
