1931 - By the time he was only 9 years old, in March, “The Star Spangled Banner” officially became the national anthem by congressional resolution. Other songs had previously been used - among them, "My Country, 'Tis of Thee", "God Bless America", and "America the Beautiful". There was fierce debate about making "The Star Spangled Banner" the national anthem - Southerners and veterans organizations supported it, pacifists and educators opposed it.

The disaster was so shocking that it replaced World War II in the headlines and lead to reforms in safety standards and codes.

A bystander saw her raise her arm, grabbed it, and the shot went wild.
