1971 - When she was 50 years old, in March, Congress passed the Twenty-sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which lowered the voting age to 18 (from 21).

The states quickly ratified the Amendment and it was signed into law on July 1st by President Richard Nixon.

1991 - By the time she was 70 years old, on January 16th, Allied forces began the first phase of Operation Desert Storm.
