World Events (8)

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.
1931 · The Bagnell Dam and Lake of the Ozarks

Age 14

The Bagnell Dam on the Osage River was completed in 1931. The dam was built to generate hydroelectric power to the Osage Power Plant. The building of the dam created Lake of the Ozarks, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, and over 1,000 miles of shoreline.
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 Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.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

North German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from Middle Low German stēn ‘stone(ware)’ + krōs, krūs ‘jug’, German Stein + Krauss, hence a metonymic occupational name for a potter or an occupational name for an innkeeper.
