Timeline

1895 - In the year that Rosalia Serena was born, on March 15th, in County Tipperary, Ireland, Michael Cleary killed his wife of 8 years, Bridget, and burned her body.

He spent 15 years in prison.

It also allowed the government to stockpile, in advance, materiel to be used in wartime.

1953 - At the age of 58 years old, Rosalia was alive when on July 27th, the Korean Armistice Agreement was signed. The Armistice was to last until "a final peaceful settlement is achieved". No peaceful settlement has ever been agreed upon.
