    1934 · Alcatraz Island Becomes Federal Penitentiary

    Age 4

    Alcatraz Island officially became Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary on August 11, 1934. The island is situated in the middle of frigid water and strong currents of the San Francisco Bay, which deemed it virtually inescapable. Alcatraz became known as the toughest prison in America and was seen as a “last resort prison.” Therefore, Alcatraz housed some of America’s most notorious prisoners such as Al Capone and Robert Franklin Stroud. Due to the exorbitant cost of running the prison, and the deterioration of the buildings due to salt spray, Alcatraz Island closed as a penitentiary on March 21, 1963.

    Age 20

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

    Name Meaning

    Scottish and northern Irish: probably a variant of MacAuslan, which is believed to be an Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Ausaláin ‘son of Absolom’, from the name of an early 13th-century cleric. The addition of -d may be due to English speakers’ perception of the devoicing of Gaelic final -n. The surname was taken to Ulster from Scotland in the 17th century.
