    1941 · Comanche Code Talkers

    Age 3

    Many Native Americans from Oklahoma were once again employed as code talkers during WWII to create a code impenetrable by enemies. Rather than Choctaw, a Comanche-language code was developed. Several of these men were sent to invade Normandy to send messages. None of the men were killed and the Comanche code was never broken. 

    1945 · Peace in a Post War World

    Age 7

    The Yalta Conference was held in Crimea to talk about establishing peace and postwar reorganization in post-World War II Europe. The heads of government that were attending were from the United States, the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union. Later the Conference would become a subject of controversy at the start of the Cold War.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from one or more of various places so named, especially Holden in Haslingden (Lancashire), but also Holden in Bolton and Holden in Silsden (both Yorkshire), Holedean Farm in Henfield and Holden in Rotherfield (both Sussex), Holding Farm in Cheriton and Woolding Farm in Whitchurch (Hampshire), and Holden in Southborough (Kent). Most of the placenames derive from Old English hol ‘hollow’ + denu ‘valley’, though Holden in Rotherfield (Sussex) and Holden in Southborough (Kent) may have Old English denn ‘pasture’ as the final element. Compare Holcomb .

    Norwegian: habitational name from the name of several farms, most of them derived from Old Norse hǫll ‘slope, hillside’.
