    1857 · 7.9 Earthquake In Fort Tejon
    Age 3
    The Fort Tejon earthquake, on January 9, 1857, registered at 7.9, making it one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in the United States. Only two people were killed, largely due to the sparse population in the area where the earthquake occurred. As a result of the large scale shaking, the Kern River was turned upstream and fish were stranded miles from Tulare Lake as the waters were rocked so far from its banks.
    Age 9
    Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
