1917 - The Storming of the Winter Palace: The Russian October Revolution

The Russian Revolution of 1917 was a political movement in Russia that climaxed in 1917 with the overthrow of the provisional government that had replaced the Russian Czar system, and led to the establishment of the Soviet Union, which lasted until its collapse in 1991. The Revolution can be viewed in two distinct phases. The first was that of the February Revolution of 1917, which displaced the autocracy of Czar Nicholas II of Russia, the last Czar of Russia, and sought to establish in its place a liberal republic. The second phase was the October Revolution, in which the Soviets were inspired and increasingly controlled by Vladimir Lenin.

1919 - Treaty of Versailles: the peace treaties at the end of World War I

The 1919 Treaty of Versailles is the peace treaty created as a result of the twelve-month-long Paris Peace Conference in 1919 which put an official end to World War I between the Allies and Central Powers. The ceremonial signing of the treaty with Germany occurred on June 28, 1919. The treaty was ratified on January 10, 1920 and required that Germany and its allies accept responsibility for causing the war and pay large amounts of compensation (known as war reparations). Like many other treaties, it is named for the place of its signing: the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles, the very place where the German Empire had been proclaimed, January 18, 1871. The choice of venue was not coincidental.

1920 - The Ban: The beginning of Prohibition in the USA

Prohibition began on January 17, 1920, when the Eighteenth Amendment went into effect. A total of 1,520 Federal Prohibition agents (police) were given the task of enforcing the law. At midnight on the night of January 16th, 1920, one of the personal habits and customs of most Americans suddenly came to a halt. Prohibition was meant to reduce the consumption of alcohol, seen by some as the work of the devil, and thereby reduce crime, poverty, death rates, and improve the economy and the quality of life. National prohibition of alcohol was undertaken to reduce crime and corruption, solve social problems, reduce the tax burden created by prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and hygiene in America. This, however, was undoubtedly to no avail. The Prohibition amendment of the 1920s was ineffective because it was unenforceable, it caused the explosive growth of crime, and it increased the amount of alcohol consumption.

1924 - Death of Lenin: Stalin's grip on power

January 21, 1924 - Vladimir Lenin dies and Joseph Stalin begins to purge his rivals to clear way for his leadership. Stalin had become the General Secretary of the Soviet Communist Party in 1922; following the death of Vladimir Lenin, he prevailed over Leon Trotsky in a power struggle during the 1920s and fully consolidated his authority with the Great Purge, a period of severe repression which reached its peak in 1937. He remained in power through World War II and until his death in 1953. Stalin molded the features that characterized the new Soviet regime; his policies, based on Marxist-Leninist ideology, are often considered to represent a political and economic system called Stalinism.

1925 - The Gold Rush: Charlie Chaplin in Hollywood

The Gold Rush is a 1925 silent film comedy written, directed, and starring Charlie Chaplin in his Little Tramp role. He goes to the Klondike in order to find gold, and falls in love. It also stars Mack Swain, Tom Murray, Henry Bergman, Malcolm Waite and Georgia Hale. One famous scene shows the Little Tramp starving and having to eat his boot; another famous scene shows a house sliding off a cliff in the snow with Chaplin inside. The movie was originally released before the invention of sound film. For the 1942 re-release, Chaplin composed and recorded a musical score and narration and tightened the editing. One sequence is altered so that instead of the Tramp finding a note from Georgia Hale”s character, which he mistakenly believes is for him, he actually receives the note from her. Another major alteration is the ending, in which the now-wealthy Tramp originally gave Georgia a lingering kiss; the sound version ends before this scene. Since the film was originally shot at 18 frames per second, the sound version, shown at 24 frames per second, is both shorter and faster than the original silent screenings. This has the side effect of making Chaplin”s slapstick routines appear more frantic than before, a fact that probably influenced Chaplin”s decision to shoot Modern Times at silent speed. The Gold Rush is the 5th highest grossing silent film in cinema history, taking in more than $4,250,000 at the box office in 1925. The film has been selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

1929 - The Stock Market Crash: beginning of the 12-year Great Depression, Wall Street Crash

Black Frida: The Stock Market Crash: The Stock Market Crashy or the Wall Street Crash refers to October 29, 1929, the day when the New York Stock Exchange crashed; this event eventually led to the Great Depression. The crash followed a speculative boom which had taken hold in the late 1920s and which had led millions of Americans to invest heavily in the stock market.This investment drove share prices up to artificially high levels; the rising share prices encouraged more people to invest, as they hoped the shares would rise further, thus fueling further rises and creating an economic bubble. The banks lent heavily to fund this share-buying spree. On October 29, 1929, the bubble finally burst and panic selling set in. Thirteen million shares were sold in the space of one day, as people desperately tried to dispose of their shares before they became worthless. Over the following few days another thirty million shares were sold, and share prices collapsed, ruining millions of investors.The banks who had lent heavily to fund share buying found themselves saddled with debt and this led to the failure of many banks.While millions of people lost their savings, businesses lost their credit lines and were forced to close, causing massive unemployment.The crash dramatically worsened an already fragile economic situation, and was a major contributing factor to the Great Depression. There is a good deal of controversy among economists and historians about the nature of that contribution, though. Some hold that political over-reactions to the crash, such as in the passage of the draconian Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act through the US Congress, caused more harm than the crash itself. After the experience of Black Friday, stock markets around the world instituted measures to temporarily suspend trading in the event of rapid declines, so as to prevent such panic sales. As a result, later stock market crashes, such as the crash of 1987 (Black Monday), have never been quite as severe as that of 1929.

1936 - Jesse Owens: Hero of the Olympic Games

James Cleveland "Jesse" Owens was an American track and field athlete who specialized in the sprints and the long jump. He participated in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, where he achieved international fame by winning four gold medals: one each in the 100 meters, the 200 meters, the long jump, and as part of the 4x100 meter relay team. He was the most successful athlete at the 1936 Summer Olympics, a victory more poignant and often noted because Adolf Hitler had intended the 1936 games to showcase his Aryan ideals and prowess.

1936 - Moments of death in the Spanish Civil War

The Spanish Civil War (1936 - 1939) was the result of complex political differences between the Republicans and the Nationalists. The Republicans were supporters of the government of the day, the Second Spanish Republic, mostly subscribing to electoral democracy and ranging from centrists to those advocating leftist revolutionary change, and with primarily an urban power base. The Nationalists, on the other hand, rebelled against that government and their power base was primarily rural and more conservative. The war took place between July 1936 and April 1939 (although the political situation had already been violent for several years before) and ended in the defeat of the Republicans, resulting in the fascist dictatorship of Francisco Franco. The number of casualties is disputed; estimates generally suggest that between 500,000 and 1,000,000 people were killed.
