1941 · Florida Involvement in World War II

Similar to the first World War, Florida's location and temperature served as an ideal location for military training; in fact, Florida would end up having 172 military installations. As a result of World War II growth, Camp Blanding became the fourth largest city in Florida, capable of housing over 55,000 soldiers. Many Floridians sacrificed their lives among other Americans to win the war; it's estimated that about 3,000 U.S. deaths were from Floridian troops.

1942 · The Japanese American internment

Caused by the tensions between the United States and the Empire of Japan, the internment of Japanese Americans caused many to be forced out of their homes and forcibly relocated into concentration camps in the western states. More than 110,000 Japanese Americans were forced into these camps in fear that some of them were spies for Japan.

Name Meaning

English (Suffolk and Norfolk): variant of Toothill, primarily a Yorkshire habitational name from any of various places called with Old English tōt-hyll ‘lookout hill’, primarily Toothill in Rastrick (Yorkshire) and perhaps Tootle in Longridge (Lancashire), but also Tuttle Hill in Nuneaton (Warwickshire), and Tothill (Lincolnshire). There are several further minor placenames of this type that may have contributed to the surname. Also occasionally from Tottenhill (Norfolk), which derives from the Old English personal name Totta (genitive Tottan) + Old English hyll ‘hill’.
