    1923 · The Last Indian War

    Age 1

    The Posey War was to be considered the final Indian War in American history. It was a minor conflict, but it involved a mass exodus of Ute and Paiute from their land around current day Bluff, Utah. The natives were led by a chief named Posey, hence the name, who took his people into the mountains to try and escape his pursuers. The war ended after a skirmish at Comb Ridge. Posey was badly wounded, and his band was taken to a prisoner-of-war camp in Blanding. When Posey's death was confirmed by the authorities, the prisoners were released and given land allotments to farm and raise livestock.

    Age 22

    The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.
