Timeline

1922 - In the year that Virginia Rice was born, on June 22, coal miners in Herrin Illinois, were on strike (coal miners had been on strike nationally since April 1). The striking miners were outraged at the strikebreakers (scabs) that the company had brought in and laid siege to the mine. Three union workers were killed when gunfire was exchanged. The next day, union miners killed 23 strikebreakers and mine guards. No one, on either side, ever faced jail time.

1936 - At the age of only 14 years old, Virginia was alive when on November 3rd, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was reelected to a second term.

The president of the Automobile Manufacturers Association said “The automotive industry is in this war all the way". Some dealerships had to close and others expanded their repair shops. The used car market boomed (as did a black market in used cars).

1962 - At the age of 40 years old, Virginia was alive when on February 20th, Lt. Col. John H. Glenn, Jr. became the first American to orbit the Earth.
