A German telegram that was decoded by the British, and when made public, helped to draw America into WWI. (It was an offer made to Mexico, to try and establish a bond between them and Germany, with the promise of helping Mexico to regain at least some of the land they has lost during the Mexican-American war.)

Who was the President when America entered WWI?

Black Kettle's camp was attacked by Custer and his calvary along the Washita River. Dr Quinn Medicine Woman actually has an episode about Washita and how the Cheyenne were pretty much wiped about by Custer. It's one of the most emotional episodes of the entire series.

When was the first Transcontinental Railroad completed?
