On This Day
In 1896, Henry Ford took his first gas-powered vehicle, the Quadricycle, for a test drive around Detroit.
In 1912, Massachusetts instituted the first minimum wage law in the U.S.
In 1917, the Pulitzer Prizes were awarded for the first time.
In 1919, the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote, was approved by Congress and sent to the states for ratification.
In 1943 (following two previous racially charged incidents) 200 U.S. Navy men took around 20 taxis and drove into East L.A., intending to kick some Latino ass. Their first victims were a group of 12-13 year old boys. They stripped anyone wearing a zoot suit and burned the suits. The violence in the wake of the attacks became known as the Zoot Suit Riots.
In 1989, the protests in Tiananmen Square ended in violence as Chinese troops moved in to quash them, killing hundreds (the exact number is unknown, but could be as high as 1000).
