1949 · 1950s Texas Drought

Age 20

One of most intense, costly, and devastating droughts ever recorded in the state of Texas. The entire state was in a state of drought by the summer of 1951. Less than 30-50% of the normal rainfall was received during this period. The state was plagued with dust storms similar to those from the infamous Dust Bowl. The drought ended in a destructive manner throughout 1957; storms, hail, tornadoes, and deadly floods.
1951 · The Twenty-Second Amendment

Age 22

Before the Twenty-second Amendment, the Presidency didn’t have a set number limit on how many times they could be elected or re-elected to the office of President of the United States. The Amendment sets that limit to two times, consecutively or not, and sets additional conditions for presidents who succeed to the unexpired terms of their predecessors.
