1918 · Attempting to Stop the War

Age 1

To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.
1923 · The Manti Cheesery

Age 6

The Manti Cheesery was the first business in Sanpete county to bring milk, cheese, and butter to different towns in the surrounding area. It was originally made by the Manti Commercial Club and was set up mainly as a co-op so no one person could gain control of the company.
1937 · The Neutrality Act

Age 20

The Neutrality Acts were passed in response to the growing conflicts in Europe and Asia during the time leading up to World War II. The primary purpose was so the US wouldn't engage in any more foreign conflicts. Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

Name Meaning

This was adopted by the Scandinavians in the form Njal and was introduced into northern England and East Anglia by them, rather than being taken directly from Gaelic.2 Americanized spelling of the like-sounding Scandinavian names Nilsen , Nielsen , and Nilsson .
