1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

Age 1

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.
1906 · The End of Capital Punishment

Age 6

Between the state's entry into the Union and 1906, 27 people were executed by hanging in Minnesota. Public opinion soon shifted against the death penalty in the state and was formally abolished in 1911. Since its abolishment, there have been 23 attempts to reinstate the death penalty, but none of these bills passed the state legislature.

Age 27

Charles Lindbergh makes the first solo nonstop transatlantic flight in his plane The Spirit of St. Louis.
