In 1904, in the year that Vera Grace Wilson was born, the Russo-Japanese war began. The Russian Empire and the Japanese Empire began fighting over the territories of Manchuria and Korea. Russia wanted a warm water port on the Pacific Ocean while Japan feared growing encroachment from Russia into Asia. So the Japan fleet launched a surprise attack on the Russian Navy and a one year war began. President Roosevelt of the United States brokered peace between the two nations. It was the first time in the modern era that an Asian power showed its dominance over a European power.

In 1935, at the age of 31 years old, Vera was alive when on September 8th, Louisiana Senator Huey Long was shot by Dr. Carl Weiss.

He was a powerful and controversial figure in Louisiana politics (and probably gained power through multiple criminal acts).
