The Lincoln penny was so popular that it soon had to be rationed and it sold on the secondary market for a quarter.

This penny was also the first U.S. cent to include the words "In God We Trust.".

1924 - At the age of just 15 years old, Truby was alive when on January 21st, Vladimir Lenin, a leader of the Russian Revolution and the first leader of the Soviet Union died. He had survived two assassination attempts but had subsequent physical problems, suffering 3 strokes. He was in such great pain, it is said that he asked Stalin to poison him. The circumstances of his death are still disputed. He did oppose Stalin as the next leader - nonetheless, Stalin won a power struggle and ruled as a Soviet dictator until his death in 1953.

The North American flight became one of her many "firsts" as a female pilot.

1947 - When this person was 38 years old, on April 15th, Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, playing first base. He was the first black man to play in the Major Leagues.
