1918 · Attempting to Stop the War

Age 1

1926 · Mammoth Cave is Discovered

Age 9

In 1926, in central Kentucky, Mammoth Cave was discovered. It dates back to Mississippian times and consists of over four hundred miles of passageway. On July 1, 1941, the cave was made a National Park.
1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 31

The Berlin Blockade was the first major crises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked all access to the sectors of Berlin under Western control and offered to drop the blockade if the newly introduced Deutsche Mark was removed from West Berlin. The Berlin Blockade showed the different ideological and economic visions for postwar Europe. Even though there wasn't any fire fight during the cold war, many of these skirmishes arose and almost caused nuclear war on multiple occasions.

Name Meaning

Scottish and English (of Norman origin): habitational name from a place in Normandy which has not been certainly identified. Traditionally, it is believed to be derived from Brix near Cherbourg, but Le Brus in Calvados and Briouze in Orne have also been proposed as candidates.
