    1898 · War with the Spanish
    Age 1
    After the explosion of the USS Maine in the Havana Harbor in Cuba, the United States engaged the Spanish in war. The war was fought on two fronts, one in Cuba, which helped gain their independence, and in the Philippines, which helped the US gain another territory for a time.
    1898 · The Kensington Runestone
    Age 1
    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.
    1914 · The Man With The First Air Conditioned Home
    Age 17
    Charles Gates was the first person in the United States to install air conditioning in his home. Funny thing was, Gates died a year before it was installed.
