Events of 1886

My family seemed fairly isolated from US and world events around them. Here are just a few events from 1886 that they may or may not have been aware of.

Some facts I didn't know :)

Thanks for sharing these events, Apple! I wasn't aware of the April blizzard in Detroit. I'm definitely going to incorporate that story in my family history when I get around to writing it ;-)

There have been lots of events that caught my interest as I researched these. The problem was trying to keep the lists short. I specically included the fact about the blizzard as it most likely effected south/central Michigan too, but is not mentioned in the letters.

I'm happy you both found them interesting.
