1915 - When she was merely 10 years old, the Germans first used poison gas as a weapon at the second Battle of Ypres during World War I.

Subsequently, the French and British - as well as the United States when they entered World War 1 - developed and used lethal gas in war.

1916 - By the time she was only 11 years old, the Battle of Verdun was fought from February through December. It was the largest and longest battle of World War I, lasting 303 days.

The Battle of the Somme was also fought from July through September of the same year. Original estimates were 485,000 British and French casualties and 630,000 German casualties.

1968 - In the year of Minnie Benner's passing, on April 4th, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the civil rights leader, was shot and killed by an assassin in Memphis. James Earl Ray was apprehended and plead guilty to shooting Dr. King. Ray died in jail in 1998.
