1896 · Plessy vs. Ferguson

Age 1

A landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of racial segregation laws for public facilities if the segregated facilities were equal in quality. It's widely regarded as one of the worst decisions in U.S. Supreme Court history.
1898 · The Kensington Runestone

Age 3

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.
1912 · The Girl Scouts

Age 17

Like the Boy Scouts of America, The Girl Scouts is a youth organization for girls in the United States. Its purpose is to prepare girls to empower themselves and by acquiring practical skills.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish: from Middle English abbott ‘abbot’ (Old English abbod) or Old French abet ‘priest’. Both the Old English and the Old French term are derived from Late Latin abbas ‘priest’ (genitive abbatis), from Greek abbas, from Aramaic aba ‘father’. This was an occupational name for someone employed in the household of or on the lands of an abbot, and perhaps also a nickname for a sanctimonious person thought to resemble an abbot. In the U.S. this name is also sometimes a translation of a cognate or equivalent European name, e.g. Italian Abate , Spanish Abad , or German Abt .
