World Events (8)

1920

Age 1

The Prohibition Era. Sale and manufacture of alcoholic liquors outlawed. A mushrooming of illegal drinking joints, home-produced alcohol and gangsterism.
1920 · Women Get the Vote

Age 1

In 1920, the 19th amendment was ratified making it so that women could vote. This achievement finally gave North Carolina the freedom to vote they had been fighting for since 1897.
1942 · The Japanese American internment

Age 23

Caused by the tensions between the United States and the Empire of Japan, the internment of Japanese Americans caused many to be forced out of their homes and forcibly relocated into concentration camps in the western states. More than 110,000 Japanese Americans were forced into these camps in fear that some of them were spies for Japan.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from the place in Bedfordshire (named in Old English as ‘settlement (Old English tūn) on the (river) Lea’), or, more plausibly in view of the pattern of distribution, from Luton in Devon (near Teignmouth), named in Old English as ‘Lēofgifu's settlement’ (from an Old English female personal name composed of the elements lēof ‘dear’, ‘beloved’ + gifu ‘gift’). A further possible source of the name is Luton in Kent, named as the ‘settlement of Lēofa’.
