1900 · The Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal

Historically known as the Chicago Drainage Canal, the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal is a canal system that connects the Chicago River to the Des Plaines River. It reverses the direction of the Chicago River, which now flows out of Lake Michigan rather than into it. It is one of two canals that helps navigation to ships traveling between the Great Lakes Waterway and the Mississippi River system.

1901 · Września Children Strike

In March of 1901, the German administration that ruled over the region of Greater Poland ordered all religion classes to teach in the German language. Students and parents were enraged by this decision. A group of roughly 118 students expressed their discontent in April; the teachers responded immediately with corporal punishment and detention. By May, a protest of 100 to 200 people began outside the school, consisting of children and adults. The administration threatened permanent suspension to individuals that rebelled, but the protests continued. The German government imprisoned 20 of these individuals over the following years and two children would end up dying from beatings. The last of the protesters would give up by 1904 and many parents ended up moving their children to other schools.

1920 · The First Fannie May

The first Fannie May shop was opened by H. Teller Archibald. It became so popular that after fifteen years Fannie May had opened 48 stores in the Midwest. During World War II, the ingredients for all of Fannie May's recipes were hard to come by. However, they chose to not change their recipes, while other competitors did. Fannie May's vision was to create handmade, delectable chocolates, without ever compromising the taste of the candy.
