If you're going to watch any videos today, make sure this is on your list.

Digging down a rabbit hole on YouTube, I came across the coolest video of Franklin D. Roosevelt (our 32nd President) dedicated the Mark Twain Bridge in 1936. The new bridge was not only dedicated by the president, but he was the first to drive over it.

In the video, you will see thousands of people just waving at the president as he drives down Broadway (I think), before heading to the bridge to make a speech and officially cutting the ribbon. You can't hear the speech, it's more like a silent movie, but still pretty cool to watch.

It's just so cool to see the people from the era, the music in the background, and knowing that the bridge has so much history. We've all driven on that bridge especially if you driving from Illinois to Missouri, and to know that it was dedicated by a president is a really cool part of Hannibal's history. FDR also help construct the Mark Twain Light House in 1933, which has been lit by Presidents Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Bill Clinton during ceremonial occasions.

More fun fact, FDR was not the only president to visit America's Hometown. President Jimmy Carter and the First Family visited the cave in 1979, and signed its guest book, which you can see for yourself in the gift shop.

So much history in the small town on the Mississippi River, and I know there is so much more to come.

LOOK: Milestones in women's history from the year you were born

Women have left marks on everything from entertainment and music to space exploration, athletics, and technology. Each passing year and new milestone makes it clear both how recent this history-making is in relation to the rest of the country, as well as how far we still need to go. The resulting timeline shows that women are constantly making history worthy of best-selling biographies and classroom textbooks; someone just needs to write about them.

Scroll through to find out when women in the U.S. and around the world won rights, the names of women who shattered the glass ceiling, and which country's women banded together to end a civil war.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
