A drilling derrick at Spindletop Hill near Beaumont, Texas, produces an enormous gusher of crude oil, coating the landscape for hundreds of feet and signaling the advent of the American oil industry.

In the first flight of its kind, American aviatrix Amelia Earhart departs Wheeler Field in Honolulu, Hawaii, on a solo flight to North America. Hawaiian commercial interests offered a $10,000 award to whoever accomplished the flight first. The next day, after traveling 2,400 miles in 18 hours, she safely landed at Oakland Airport in Oakland, California.

January 11, 1864 The morning after the hanging of Sheriff Plummer and his deputies a group of Bannack citizens went to the cabin of Joe Pizanthia to question him about his possible involvement with the Road Agents. Mary Edgerton writes of the incident in a letter: "On Monday they attempted to arrest another of the band, a Mexican, and two of our men were shot by him (one died the next day, the other was not seriously wounded,) which so exasperated the people that they came to our house and got the howitzer that had been left in Mr. Edgerton's care, and with that threw shells into the house which exploded and injured the man. They then took him out and shot and hung him. They then tore down the house and set it on fire and threw his body on and burned it up." This was not the actions of the well organized Vigilantes but an angry mob of Bannack citizens.

On this day in 1888, the so-called "Schoolchildren's Blizzard" kills 235 people, many of whom were children on their way home from school, across the Northwest Plains region of the United States. The storm came with no warning, and some accounts say that the temperature fell nearly 100 degrees in just 24 hours.
