        <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-10 col-sm-offset-1 col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
            <li><strong>1810</strong> - Lorenzo Lorraine Langstroth was born in Philadelphia on Christmas Day.</li>
            <li><strong>1831</strong> - Langstroth graduated from Yale Univeristy's Divinity College.</li>
            <li><strong>1836</strong> - Langstroth became a pastor at the South Congregational Church in Andover, Massachusetts.</li>
            <li><strong>1838</strong> - After seeing a honeycomb in a large glass globe on a friend’s table, his childhood curiosity of insects was revived; that same day he returned home with two colonies of bees and thereafter devoted himself to apiculture.</li>
            <li><strong>1843</strong> - Langstroth resigned from South Congregational Church because of a serious illness -- “head troubles” and severe bouts of depression -- that would stay with him throughout the rest of his life. Beekeeping was his refuge.</li>
            <li><strong>1843 - 1848</strong> - He served as pastor of Second Congregational Church and as principal of a young ladies' school in Greenfield, Massachusetts.</li>
            <li><strong>1848</strong> - Langstroth moved his family back to Philadelphia, where he set up a two-acre apiary in West Philly.</li>
            <li><strong>1851</strong> - Working with Philadelphia cabinetmaker Henry Bourquin, Langstroth constructed a wooden hive with moveable frames, giving him unprecedented control over the honeycombs.</li>
            <li><strong>1852</strong> - Recevies first patent for a <a href="https://www.google.com/patents/US9300" target="_blank">Bee Hive</a>. Langstroth never profited from his patent, since it proved too difficult to defend. The simplicity of the Langstroth
              Hive made it easy to copy and modify.</li>
            <li><strong>1853</strong> - Published the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bUJ41om5rA" target="_blank"> Hive and the Honey Bee</a>; forty editions later it is still in print today.</li>
            <li><strong>1858</strong> - Langstroth moved his family to Oxford, Ohio.</li>
            <li><strong>1861</strong> - The first issue of the American Bee Journal was published, for which Langstroth wrote the lead column.</li>
            <li><strong>1863</strong> - Langstroth's patent for <a href="https://www.google.com/patents/USRE1484" target="_blank">Bee Hive</a> was reissued.</li>
            <li><strong>1863</strong> - Langstroth received his first Italian bees (Apis mellifera ligustica); he would go on to ship thousands of them all across the world by mail.</li>
            <li><strong>1895</strong> - Langstroth died on October 6th while giving a sermon.</li>
            <li><strong>1976</strong> - Langstroth Cottage in Oxford, Ohio was named a National Historical Landmark. Today it is home to the Miami University Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching.</li>
            <li><strong>2010</strong> - An <a href="" target="_blank">Historical Marker</a> was dedicated to Langstroth at 106 South Front Street, Philadelphia.</li>

            <p>“Born here, Langstroth revolutionized the beekeeping industry with his 1852 patented moveable frame hive and his manual, <em>The Hive and the Honey Bee</em>. Both remain in use today. His innovations advanced beekeeping, pollination, and honey
              production worldwide.”</p>
