1928 - At the age of 35 years old, Bessie was alive when aviatrix Amelia Earhart, age 31, became the first woman to fly solo across North America and back in August. In June, she had been part of a 3 man crew that flew the Atlantic Ocean but since she had no instrument training, she couldn't fly the plane - she kept the flight log.

The states quickly ratified the Amendment and it was signed into law on July 1st by President Richard Nixon.
