1907 - Rasputin and the Romanovs

Rasputin was a Russian mystic with an influence in the latter days of the Romanov dynasty in Russia. He was believed to have been a psychic and faith healer and though he can be considered one of the more controversial characters in 20th century history, Rasputin is viewed by most historians today as a scapegoat. He played a small but extremely pivotal role in the downfall of the Romanov dynasty that finally led to Bolshevik victory and the establishment of the Soviet Union. Rasputin played an important role in the lives of the Tsar Nicholas II, his wife, the Alexandra and their only son, the Tsarevitch Alexei, who was a haemophiliac. Tsarina Alexandra thought that their son was kept from death by Rasputin.

1930 - Gandhi: The Salt March

On March 12th, 1930 Mahatma Gandhi sets off with 78 followers on a 200-mile protest march towards the sea to protest the British monopoly on salt. More will join them during the Salt March that ends on April 5th. He gained worldwide publicity through his policies of civil disobedience, non-cooperation, and the use of fasting as a form of protest. The British authorities repeatedly imprisoned him. His longest term of imprisonment began on March 18th, 1922 when he was sentenced to six years for civil disobedience; he only served 2 years of that sentence, however. Gandhi spent a total of 2,338 days in prison during his lifetime. His philosophy of non-violence, for which he coined the term satyagraha, has influenced both national and international movements for peaceful change.
