1976 Greyhound Bus Commercial This commercial suggests you celebrate America's bicentennial year by...riding on a Greyhound Bus. Makes sense to me.

Expo 67 Montreal One of the most successful world's fairs ever held was Expo '67 in Montreal. It happened to coincide with Canada's centennial year. The fair was held on two artificial islands built in the St. Lawrence River. The islands were created using the dirt excavated from Montreal's subway construction. Expo was the place to be that summer!

Civil War News Trading Cards Civil War News was a set of 88 collectible trading cards issued in the early 1960s by Topps. The set featured the colorful artwork of Norman Saunders, as well as three other artists. The card set was characterized by vivid colors, graphic depictions of violence, death, and blood (card #21 'Painful Death' being a prime example) and exaggerations of warfare. On the reverse, each card contained a brief history of a campaign, battle, or person. The information was presented in newspaper-article fashion complete with a headline. The complete set of cards, including a checklist, was first printed for the American market in 1962 to coincide with the centennial of the Civil War. A similar series with the same artwork was later issued in Canada. A&BC produced the sets in England. The cards came five to a wax pack with a stick of bubble gum. Also included in each package was a facsimile of Confederate paper currency. The original selling price was a nickel per package. Topps later issued the cards in cellophane-wrapped strips.

Rick Monday Saves American Flag 1976 At a time when the USA was experiencing a resurgence of patriotism with the Bicentennial, a pair of protesters apparently didn't get the message that the 1960s were over: The Cubs and Dodgers were playing in Los Angeles and with the Dodgers batting in the bottom of the 4th inning, two men ran onto the field, intending to burn an American flag. The men spread the flag on the outfield grass, and one of them soaked it in lighter fluid as the other was about to ignite it. A quick-thinking Rick Monday ran towards the men, grabbing the flag and preventing the desecration of the Stars and Stripes.

LHOP - Centennial Finale Here's another favorite clip from Little House on the Prairie. It's the final six minutes of an episode titled Centennial. Here's the plot: As America's centennial approaches in 1876, few adults in Walnut Grove are in the mood to celebrate. They have just been informed of a tax hike made necessary to build an improved road system. Furthermore, newly arrived immigrants from Tsarist Russia, Yuli Pyatakoff and his family, are being evicted from their farm because they cannot pay the back taxes accrued by the previous owner. Everyone is grumpy about taxes and the government--until Yuli tells them how good they've got it.

Brampton Centennial HS School Shooting - 1975 The first school shooting in Canada in 73 years occurred on Wednesday, May 28, 1975 at Centennial High School in Brampton, Ontario. Just before noon, 16-year-old Michael Slobodian walked onto the campus with two high-powered hunting rifles and at least two ammunition belts. He killed John Slinger, a 17-year-old student, and Margaret Wright, a teacher in the English and art departments. Slobodian wounded 13 others before taking his own life with one of the firearms. “It was a beautiful spring day,” recalled Lorna (Matthews) McClusky, a Grade 10 student at the time. She walked into a hallway and heard what sounded like fire crackers. Then a girl who had been grazed by a bullet encountered her and yelled, “There’s someone shooting at people out there!” She and others quickly retreated to a nearby classroom. They remained there, hidden, until police gave the all clear to leave. She still remembers hearing wounded students moaning and calling out for help. That morning, 14-year-old Pam (Read) Hand was headed to her locker across from the first-floor boys' washroom. In one of those washroom stalls, Slobodian was loading his rifles to begin his deadly shooting spree. Hand remembers stopping in the cafeteria just long enough to greet a friend and take a bite of her donut. Meanwhile, in that washroom across from room 112, Slobodian had already fatally shot Slinger. The young victim managed to stagger into the hallway, where he collapsed and died. Nineteen-year-old Michael Gibeault was also in the washroom at the time. He was shot three times in the stomach and once in the arm at close range. He was able to stumble out before collapsing. Critically wounded, he would survive. Slobodian then opened fire on another boy as he made his way into the hallway, firing randomly at students in that section of the building. He walked around the corner to an art room, where he shot Mrs. Wright and another student. A note police found in his home indicated Slobodian planned to kill Wright, science teacher Ross Bronson, and anyone who got in his way. It is unclear what the teachers had done to trigger such hostility. The school was reopened shortly afterwards and the students were urged not to dwell on the tragedy. According to a news report on the 37th anniversary of the shooting, a movement is afoot to erect a permanent memorial to the two victims killed by Slobodian.
