1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

Age 1

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.
1906 · The Atlanta Race Riot

Age 6

The Atlanta Race Riot of 1906 occurred on the evening of September 22 through September 24. A newspaper reported the rapes of four white women by African American men. Fueled by pre-existing racial tensions, these reports enraged white men who then arranged gangs to attack African American men. Over the next few days, several thousand white men joined in and in the end, 26 people were killed and many were injured.
1916 · The First woman elected into the US Congress

Age 16

Jeannette Pickering Rankin became the first woman to hold a federal office position in the House of Representatives, and remains the only woman elected to Congress by Montana.

Name Meaning

French: Some translate this name as "peace of the country," perhaps from Dutch "row," peace, and "land," meaning peacemaker of his country. It is another form of the Francic name Roland.
