Timeline

1892 - In the year that Martha A Nicholson was born, on October 5th, the Dalton Gang was shot.

Four members of the gang were killed - only Emmett Dalton survived his wounds and spent 14 years in prison.

1906 - Martha was only 14 years old when President Theodore Roosevelt received the Nobel Prize for Peace. The award was considered controversial at the time because many thought that he was an imperialist.

For these two reasons, the Nobel Prize committee chose him for the Peace Prize.

He was a powerful and controversial figure in Louisiana politics (and probably gained power through multiple criminal acts). His opponents became frustrated with their attempts to oust him and Dr. Weiss was the son-in-law of one of those opponents. His funeral was attended by 200,000 mourners.
