Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire 1911 On March 25, 1911, 146 employees of the Triangle Shrtwaist Company in New York City--mostly female Jewish immigrants--perished when fire engulfed their factory. Death came in many hideous ways: Some workers were trampled to death in the panic. Others suffocated on the smoke-filled ninth floor. More than 50 chose to jump to their deaths rather than burn once they discovered the emergency doors had been locked by their employer to keep them from leaving work early. Though nearly forgotten today, the Triangle Shirtwaist fire was responsible for many fire safety regulations and labor laws that exist today.

FDR Assassination Attempt 1933 In February 1933, less than three weeks before being sworn in as the chief executive of the United States, president-elect Franklin Roosevelt survived an assassination attempt in Miami. Unfortunately, Chicago's mayor Anton Cernak, was struck by a shot intended for Roosevelt. He died of his wounds. The assassin said he didn't personally dislike Roosevelt. He just hated all rich people.

Frances Folsom Cleveland Reputed to be America's most attractive American First Lady, Frances Folsom was the wife of Grover Cleveland. Cleveland was a bachelor when he became president in 1885. He married Folsom in 1886 when he was 49 and she was not quite 22, making her the youngest First Lady ever. (Attaboy, Grover!) Her father, Herbert Folsom, had been Cleveland's best friend. When Herbert died in 1875, Cleveland became the executor of his estate and 11-year-old Frances became Cleveland's ward. That Cleveland's relationship with Frances eventually evolved from guardian to romantic interest would likely be considered scandalous today, but little was made of it in 1886. They had a happy 22-year marriage that ended with the former president's death in 1908. She died in 1947.

Jack Johnson Vs James Jeffries The most socially significant boxing match ever contested pitted world heavyweight champion Jack Johnson against former champ James Jeffries. Jeffries, who had hung up his gloves in 1904, had been coaxed out of retirement by big money to take on the cocky black champion in Reno, Nevada on July 4, 1910. The fight proved to be no contest as Johnson won easily. Race riots erupted all over the United States when the result was announced.
