Timeline

1863 - In the year that Wilmot Ann Thomas was born, on June 20th, West Virginia was admitted as the 35th state of the United States. West Virginia was formed when the pro-Union citizens in northwest Virginia wanted to separate from Virginia - which had joined the Confederacy.

1867 - At the age of merely 4 years old, Wilmot was alive when on March 1st, Nebraska became the 37th state in the United States. Due to the Homestead Act, settlers had flooded into the area and the first wave of settlers was so large that Nebraska was immediately able to apply for statehood.

1908 - At the age of 45 years old, Wilmot was alive when Henry Ford developed the first Model T automobile, often called the Tin Lizzy or flivver.

Previously, cars were the province of the upper class and the introduction of the Model T and its availability changed U.S. culture. Within days of its release, over 15,000 cars had been ordered.

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