Timeline

1917 - In the year that Ruth Dorsky was born, Russian government offices were seized and the Romanov's Winter Palace was stormed in the Russian February and October Revolutions.

The October revolution resulted in Lenin and the Bolsheviks taking complete control.

1946 - At the age of 29 years old, Ruth was alive when on July 4th, the Philippines gained independence from the United States. In 1964, Independence Day in the Philippines was moved from July 4th to June 12th at the insistence of nationalists and historians.

1964 - By the time she was 47 years old, on June 11th, activist Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment in South Africa for conspiring to overthrow the state (because of his numerous anti-apartheid activities). He served 27 years in prison.

1971 - Ruth was 54 years old when 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.
