1888 - In the year that Elizabeth Woods was born, on January 12th, the 'Schoolhouse Blizzard' blanketed Dakota Territory. Montana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas were hit, leaving 235 dead. Many of those who perished were children on their way home from school. The day was relatively warm when it began and the blizzard hit unexpectedly, catching most by surprise.

1916 - At the age of 28 years old, Elizabeth was alive when the Battle of Verdun was fought from February through December. It was the largest and longest battle of World War I, lasting 303 days.

At the time, the Teapot Dome scandal was seen as "greatest and most sensational scandal in the history of American politics".

1961 - By the time she was 73 years old, on May 5th, Navy Cmdr. Alan B. Shepard, Jr., made the first manned Project Mercury flight, MR-3, in a spacecraft he named Freedom 7. He was the second man to go into space, the first was Yuri Gagarin - a Soviet cosmonaut.
