Timeline

1894 - In the year that George Edmondson was born, large reserves of oil were discovered on the Osage Indian reservation in Oklahoma.

1909 - He was merely 15 years old when the NAACP was founded by W. E. B. Du Bois. The organization focused on legal strategies designed to confront the critical civil rights issues of the day - which included lynching and segregation in schools.
