1917 · The Green Corn Rebellion

Age 6

A farmer’s revolt known as the Green Corn Rebellion resulted due to frustration toward landowners and local authorities. A small group of wealthy landowners obtained property by fraudulent means which forced many Oklahoma farmers into a tenancy in 1917. Many farmers joined the Working Class Union who became hostile toward county officials. Hundreds of men gathered on the farm of John Spears in Sasakwa where they planned to march to Washington to repeal the draft act and end the war. Their plan included eating green corn and beef along the way, which gave the rebellion its name. An informer alerted authorities and their effort was halted as several groups collided with the rebels, firing shots into the air. The men scattered, three were killed, over 400 were arrested, and 150 were convicted and received federal prison sentences.
1935 · The FBI is Established

Age 24

The Bureau of Investigation's name was changed to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to help citizens know that the Government is helping protect from threats both domestically and abroad.
