Timeline

1917 - In the year that Lewis L Jackson was born, Russian government offices were seized and the Romanov's Winter Palace was stormed in the Russian February and October Revolutions.

It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

1980 - At the age of 63 years old, Lewis was alive when on April 24th, a rescue attempt was begun in the Iranian Hostage Crisis. The attempt failed and 8 US servicemen were killed. 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.

AT&T lost 70% of its book value due to this move.
