1923 · The Last Indian War

Age 1

The Posey War was to be considered the final Indian War in American history. It was a minor conflict, but it involved a mass exodus of Ute and Paiute from their land around current day Bluff, Utah. The natives were led by a chief named Posey, hence the name, who took his people into the mountains to try and escape his pursuers. The war ended after a skirmish at Comb Ridge. Posey was badly wounded, and his band was taken to a prisoner-of-war camp in Blanding. When Posey's death was confirmed by the authorities, the prisoners were released and given land allotments to farm and raise livestock.
1937 · The Neutrality Act

Age 15

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 Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
