The Panic of 1893, and the resulting depression, hit coal miners hard and the miners only struck for 8 weeks - they couldn't afford to live without their wages any longer.

1907 - When she was just 13 years old, the showman Florenz Ziegfeld introduced his Ziegfeld Follies.

For almost a quarter of a century, the Ziegfeld follies were the toast of Broadway.

He was released in 1962 after 1 year, 9 months and 10 days in prison.

1978 - At the age of 84 years old, Ellamae was alive when on July 25th, Louise Brown, the first "test-tube baby", was born at Oldham Hospital in London. Louise was conceived through IVF (in vitro fertilization), a controversial and experimental procedure at the time.
