Timeline

1882 - In the year that George Frederick Ellsworth was born, on March 22nd, the Edmunds Act - passed by Congress - made polygamy a felony.

1905 - George was 23 years old when the first movie theater opened in the United States in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was the first theater to show nothing but movies - silent films.

The first day, 450 people watched movies at the new theater - on the second day, more than 1500 people stood in line to get in.

1929 - At the age of 47 years old, George was alive when American Samoa officially became a U.S. territory. Although a part of the United States since 1900, the Ratification Act of 1929 vested "all civil, judicial, and military powers in the President of the United States of America".

1945 - When he was 63 years old, on August 15th, Imperial Japan announced its surrender. On September 2nd, a formal agreement of surrender was signed. Japan and nine other states signed the Japanese Instrument of Surrender in Tokyo Bay, calling for the return of all Allied prisoners of war and subordinating the authority of the emperor and the Japanese government to the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers. VJ (Victory in Japan) Day was celebrated in the United States on August 14th and 15th. World War II was over.
