In 1898, in the year that Sampson Bradford was born, magnate and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company controlled 84% of the oil and pipelines in the United States.

In 1938, when he was 40 years old, on October 30th, a Sunday, The Mercury Theatre on the Air broadcast Orson Welles' special Halloween show The War of the World's. A clever take on H.G. Wells' novel, the show began with simulated "breaking news" of an invasion by Martians.

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