1910 · The BSA is Made

Age 1

Being modeled after the Boy Scout Association in England, The Boy Scouts of America is a program for young teens to learn traits, life and social skills, and many other things to remind the public about the general act of service and kindness to others.


Age 2

The Standard Oil Company had reached a point of almost complete monopoly, managing over 90% of oil flows in the United States. The Standard Oil Company of New Jersey was a large, integrated association that produced, transported, refined, and marketed the product. In 1911, the Supreme Court declared that the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey was in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. As a result, it was split into 34 smaller companies.

1918 · Attempting to Stop the War

Age 9

To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.

Name Meaning

German: from Middle High German zinke ‘peak’, acquired either as a topographic name by someone who lived on or near a crag or on a pointed piece of land or as a nickname for a man with a singularly pointed nose. Compare modern German slang Zinken ‘hooter, nose’. The same word was used to denote the cornet, although the semantic development is not clear, and the surname may sometimes have been metonymic for a player of this instrument. It was not until the 16th century that the metal zinc was discovered and named (apparently from its jagged appearance in the furnace), so this is unlikely to be the origin of the surname.

German: from the old personal name Jacinctus, which derives from Hyacinthus, a Christian saint's name (see Jacinto ). Compare Sink .

In some cases also a Germanized or Americanized form of Czech and Slovenian Cink .
