On June 2nd, the Philippines officially declared war on the United States.

In 1902, at the age of merely 13 years old, Lottie was alive when about 150 thousand United Mine Workers went on strike in eastern Pennsylvania for a wage increase and more suitable hours. They eventually got a 10% raise and their workday was reduced from 10 hours to 9. Because winter was coming and most people at the time heated their homes with coal, President Teddy Roosevelt arbitrated between the owners and the workers - the first time that the Federal government arbitrated in a strike.

In 1936, when she was 47 years old, on November 3rd, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was reelected to a second term.

John Nance Garner IV became the Vice-President in this election.
