Timeline

1898 - In the year that Frances Allen was born, on March 24th, Robert Allison of Pennsylvania became the first person to buy an American-built car.

The Winton, built in Ohio, was made by hand and came with a leather roof, padded seats, gas lamps, and tires made by B.F. Goodrich.

1913 - She was just 15 years old when ratified in February the 16th Amendment, establishing a Federal income tax, became law.

Rates rose to 7% for incomes over half a million dollars. Less than 1% of the population was subject to income tax.

Eight helicopters had been sent for the mission, but only 5 arrived in operating condition., Since the military had advised that the mission be aborted if there were fewer than 6 helicopters, President Carter stopped it. Upon leaving, a helicopter collided with a transport plane and the men were killed.
