Meyersdale Republican: May 6, 1915 - p. 8 CELEBRATED HIS REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT Charles Damico's Manner of Showing His Interest in and Loyalty to Meyersdale Charles Damico was host at an elaborate supper given Monday evening at his home to celebrate his recent investment in gilt-edge real estate. Within 48 hours after he purchased the Stein property on Main street he was offered a bonus of $2000 for his bargain. He declined it as he purchased for a permanent investment. Mr. Damico has prospered since engaging in business in Meyersdale. He has made many friends here and considers this as good a place as any in the country in which to live and bring up his children. "I have made up my mind to live here as long as I can. If the town dies, I'll die with it. I'm here to stay, no matter what others may do. If I can not make a living here, I'll stick just the same and starve if necessary. I am all for Meyersdale and intend to do all I can to keep it on the map," is the way Mr. Damico expresses himself, and his sincerity cannot be questioned. If some of our native citizens would show the same degree of loyalty to the town and be as energetic as this foreign born citizen, we would soon have a better and bigger town. Mr. Damico's guests included the following gentlemen: Rev. J.J. Brady, John Stein, Sr., W.H. Habel, F.A. Bittner, T.E. McKenzie, S.F. Smith, W.L. Dahl, R.F. Mason, H.E. Bauman, J.H. Bowman, Jacob Wasmuth, Thomas Downie and Santo Lucente. The supper was sumptuous and excellently served, the genial host being assisted in looking after the comfort and satiety of his guests, by Mrs. Damico, while their talented little daughter, Frances, helped in entertaining by playing several beautiful selections on the piano.

In 1884, when he was only 11 years old, on December 6th, the Washington Monument was completed. Building began in 1848 but was stopped because of lack of funds and also due to the Civil War. It would be dedicated in 1885. At the time of its completion, it was the tallest structure in the world.

In 1893, Diego was 20 years old when on May 5th, a crash on the New York Stock Exchange started a depression that lasted 4 years. It was the beginning of the Panic of 1893.

In 1917, he was 44 years old when "I Want You" became famous. James Montgomery Flagg's poster, featuring Uncle Sam and based on a 1914 British poster, attracted thousands of U.S. recruits to WWI duty. Over 4 million posters were printed in 1917 and 1918.

In 1927, in the year of Diego Francesco DAmico's passing, 10 years after the United States bought the U.S. Virgin Islands from the Danish government, the inhabitants were granted U.S. citizenship.
