Oregon State Capitol Jessica Ridderbusch Arts/100 11/26/2012 Doris Doyon `Oregon State Capitol After a lot of thought and consideration of the different buildings and attractions here in the Willamette Valley, I have decided to discuss our very own State Capitol. On the night of April 25, 1935, the capitol was destroyed by a fire that speeds quickly from the bottom story up through dome-supporting column shafts. An investigation determined that the fire was accidental and that it originated in the storeroom-service area in the basement of the east entrance wing. Officials wasted no time preparing plans for the new building. The Designed by Francis Keally with the New York firm of Trowbridge & Livingston and dedicated on October 1,

Phineas Gage was a survivor of a horrific injury to the frontal lobes in an industrial accident in 1848. His subsequent personality change provides some of the earliest evidence for the role of the frontal cortex in mental activity. Gage was working as a construction foreman for the Rutland and Burlington Railroad, rock blasting for a new railway line in Vermont. An accidental explosion drove a tamping iron, 3 cm (1¼ in) in diameter and 109 cm (45 in) long, through Gage's head. It entered at the left cheek, passed upwards through the brain and exited the skull through the frontal bone close to the midline.
I am from a small farming community in southern Indiana, Ellettsville. Ellettsville is located 50 miles south of the state capitol, Indianapolis, and 8 miles West of Indiana University. Ellettsville was founded by limestone merchants in 1837; Edward Ellett was the very first limestone merchant to become established. Due to this heritage the town motto is “Builders of American History”, due to the amount of limestone that has been shipped from the town all over the United States used in many structures. In the 2010 census, the population of Ellettsville was 6378.
Abraham Lincoln (February 12 1809 – April 15 1865) was the 16th President of the United States. He served as president from 1861 to 1865, during the American Civil War. Just six days after most of the Confederate forces had surrendered and the war was ending, John Wilkes Booth assassinated Lincoln. Lincoln has been remembered as the "Great Emancipator" because he worked to end slavery in the United States.  Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12 1809, in Hardin County (now LaRue County), Kentucky.

When the fire company broke into the marshal’s office where the draft was being held the smashed the selection wheel and set fire to the building which is ironic because they put out fires. A deputy begged for the company to put out the fire but they refused and he was beaten and the draft was officially on hold. Workers from railroads, artisans, industrial workers, machine shops, laborers, and other employees didn’t show up for work that day as they were marching up 8th and 9th Ave and they gathered more people as they continued (Weil 147). The mob met in Central Park to discuss the situation and split up into two columns and went on their way (Bernstein 18). Some people started to bring down telephone poles and lines and this began this terrible insurrection that was to
The community responded by the miners doing a 23-day black lung strike. The coal miners also held a series of demonstrations in Charleston, West Virginia at the capitol. This was held in February in 1969. This strike was held because the coal miners wanted legislation in West Virginia to recognize black lung as a compensable occupational disease. Finally congress passed the 1969 federal Mine Safety and Health Act (West Virginia Division of Culture and History, 2011).
