In 1880, Europeans industrializes food with a new technology replacing the stone grinding of grains; the oil in flour now turns rancid so it is removed, removing with it valuable nutrients. Tsar Alexander II is assassinated in 1881. Segregation is mandated on US railroads in Tennessee. US President James Garfield is shot and dies two months later after an infection is caused by doctors repeatedly sticking their fingers into the bullet hole looking for the bullet. European powers meet in Berlin in 1885 and make arrangements to rape the commonwealth of Africa by giving King Leopold of Belgium control over the Congo; Tanzania, Southwest Africa and Cameroon is given to Germany; Botswana is annexed and France colonizes Central Africa and establishes a colony on the northern tip of Madagascar. Geronimo, the Apache Chieftain, is finally captured in 1886 after a four-year attempt. Wyoming becomes the 44th state to join the Union in 1890, after it had been denied statehood because it allowed women the right to vote. Sitting Bull is shot and killed and 300 men, women and children are massacred at Wounded Knee, after whites feared that Sitting Bull would lead a rebellion in his old age because an Indian woman named Wovoka foresees a messiah rescuing Indians and killing whites. The state of Mississippi creates a poll tax, literacy tests and other measures to prevent blacks from voting.

 

Journalist Ida B. Wells begins to investigate the lynching of blacks in 1892 after three of her friends are lynched in Tennessee. In 1893, Hawaiian Queen Liliuokalane plans a constitution that will deprive white businessmen of their power in government, before she is over-thrown by an armed militia of whites. The US economy is plunging: the Reading Railroad collapses financially, money in circulation declines and an agricultural depression spreads in the West and South; and by 1894 the unemployment rate jumps from 3 percent in 1892 to 18.4 percent. A “separate but equal” US Supreme Court ruling on public facilities for whites and blacks are deemed legal in 1896. More than 100 black women’s clubs are united at the forming of The National Association of Colored Women. Alarmed by the French influence in Sudan, the Brits lead an army into Sudan, while the Ethiopians defeat an Italian army, saving themselves from colonial rule. Hawaii is annexed in 1898 by President McKinley. After suing for peace, Spain loses all of its colonies, including the Philippines, Guam and Puerto Rico to The United States; Cuba is recognized as independent. By the end of its total devastation, the European pestilence of the bubonic plague kills 3 million during an outbreak in China and India. In 1899, Germany acquires islands in the northern Mariana and Caroline Islands, while a treaty recognizes Western Samoa as a German colony and American Samoa as being under the control of The United States; and Britain gains power over the island of Tonga.
