Age 1

The Korean War was a civil war between North and South Korea. North Korea had support of China and the Soviet Union while South Korea gained support from the United States. The war broke out as a product of the Cold War because of the different ideologies that each side had for what government is. The fighting stopped when an armistice was signed but no peace treaty was ever established. To some the war is still progressing but it is in a stage of frozen conflict.

Age 14

President John F. Kennedy is assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

Name Meaning

1 English: occupational name for a hunter, Old English hunta (a primary derivative of huntian ‘to hunt’). The term was used not only of the hunting on horseback of game such as stags and wild boars, which in the Middle Ages was a pursuit restricted to the ranks of the nobility, but also to much humbler forms of pursuit such as bird catching and poaching for food. The word seems also to have been used as an Old English personal name and to have survived into the Middle Ages as an occasional personal name. Compare Huntington and Huntley .2 Irish: in some cases (in Ulster) of English origin, but more commonly used as a quasi-translation of various Irish surnames such as Ó Fiaich ( see Fee ).3 Possibly an Americanized spelling of German Hundt .
