1937 · The Neutrality Act

Age 1

The Neutrality Acts were passed in response to the growing conflicts in Europe and Asia during the time leading up to World War II. The primary purpose was so the US wouldn't engage in any more foreign conflicts. Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

1938 · Electrification of Rural Kansas

Age 2

Power was supplied to rural Kansas, which had been hit hard by the depression, in March 1938. Many farmers could not afford the $5 hookups for electricity. As a result, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Rural Electrification Act which provided loans to farmers who wanted electricity. Brown County became the first to receive service.


Age 14

United States military forces play a leading role against North Korean and Chinese troops in Korean War.
