On November 18, 1978, a charismatic Peoples Temple founder
Jim Jones 
(inert) lead hundreds of his followers in a mass murder-suicide at their
agricultural commune in a remote part of the South American nation of
Guyana. Many of Jones’ followers willingly ingested a poison-laced punch
while others were forced
 to do so at gunpoint. The final death toll at the
compound that day was 909; a third of those who perished were children.

The Girl Scout organization was founded on this day in 1912 by 
Juliette Gordon Low (above) (1860-1927). The original name was 
Girl Guides.

A meeting in 1912 with Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of
Boy Scouts, inspired Juliette to establish Girl Scouts that same
year. The first gathering was a small troop of 18 culturally and
ethnically diverse girls. The organization serves millions of girl
members today.
