World Events (8)

1944 · The G.I Bill

Age 2

The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.
1948 · The Dixiecrats

Age 6

Dixiecrats were members of a right-wing splinter group who opposed federal intervention on state matters such as race and labor relations. After failing to prevent the nomination of Harry Truman at the Democratic National Convention, over 6,000 people from 13 southern states met at the Dixiecrat Convention in Birmingham on July 17, 1948. Here, Governor Strom Thurmond was nominated for president and Governor Fielding L. Wright was nominated for vice president. The Dixiecrats hoped to win enough electoral-college votes in the southern states to prevent either Republican or Democrat nominee from winning enough electoral votes for election. Truman was elected on November 2, 1948, and the Dixiecrats received only 39 electoral votes.
1958 · The First U.S. Satellite in Space

Age 16

Explorer 1 was the first satellite of the United States to be launched and successfully orbit the Earth.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish: occupational name for a tailor, from Old French tailleur (Late Latin taliator, from taliare ‘to cut’). The surname is extremely common in Britain and Ireland, and its numbers have been swelled by its adoption as an Americanized form of the numerous equivalent European names, most of which are also very common among Ashkenazic Jews, for example Schneider , Szabó , and Portnov .
