    1918 · Attempting to Stop the War
    Age 1
    To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.
    1920 · Woman's Suffrage Referendum 1920
    Age 3
    The voting ballet from September 13, 1920 included a veto referendum that would give women the right to vote in the presidential elections. The referendum won, with 88,080 votes (74.30%) supporting the change. This resulted in women from Maine being among the first in the country to obtain suffrage.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish (Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire): habitational name from the lands of Cochrane in the parish of Paisley, near Glasgow. The placename is of uncertain derivation, perhaps from Welsh coch ‘red’, although this etymology is not supported by the early spelling Coueran.
