Timeline

Many had to be released in a few weeks and only 3 guns were found in their homes. The U.S. Department of Justice "red hunt" netted thousands of "radicals" and suspected "communists" and aliens were deported. But the "hunt" ended after Attorney General Palmer forecast a massive radical uprising on May Day and the day passed without incident.

President Warren G. Harding officiated at the interment ceremonies.

The North American flight became one of her many "firsts" as a female pilot.

1954 - At the age of 34 years old, Laura was alive when on May 17th, the Supreme Court released a decision on Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka.
