Prior to 1877, the Gridley-Biggs Cemetery was known as the "Wharton Burial Grounds" named after John O. Wharton, a local farmer who deeded the first portion of land to the community for burials. On March 17, 1877, the Wharton Burial Grounds became the Live Oak Cemetery Association. The Association was formed as the Gridley-Biggs Cemetery District on June 29, 1927. The first known burial occurred in November 1855.
1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War
Age 22
The Berlin Blockade was the first major crises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked all access to the sectors of Berlin under Western control and offered to drop the blockade if the newly introduced Deutsche Mark was removed from West Berlin. The Berlin Blockade showed the different ideological and economic visions for postwar Europe. Even though there wasn't any fire fight during the cold war, many of these skirmishes arose and almost caused nuclear war on multiple occasions.
