1909 - Arnie was merely 5 years old when the U.S. penny was changed to the Abraham Lincoln design. The Lincoln penny was so popular that it soon had to be rationed and it sold on the secondary market for a quarter.

This penny was also the first U.S. cent to include the words "In God We Trust.".

A madam from a brothel in which he was hiding became an informer for the FBI and, after a shootout with FBI agents, Dillinger was shot and died.

1947 - Arnie was 43 years old when in June, the Marshall Plan was proposed to help European nations recover economically from World War II.

The Allies didn't want this to happen again and the Marshall Plan was devised to make sure that those conditions didn't arise again.
