World Events (8)

1870 · The Fifteenth Amendment

Age 2

Prohibits the federal government and each state from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's race, color, or previous condition of servitude. It was the last of the Reconstruction Amendments.
1872 · Montgomery Ward Inc.

Age 4

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. 
1877 · The First Workers Strike

Age 9

The country was in great economic distress in mid-1877, which caused many workers of the Railroad to come together and began the first national strike in the United States. Crowds gathered in Chicago in extreme number to be a part of the strike which was later named the Great Railroad Strike. Shortly after the strike began, the battle was fought between the authorities and many of the strikers. The conflict escalated to violence and quickly each side turned bloody.
