1937 · The Neutrality Act

Age 2

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 Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
1938 · Electrification of Rural Kansas

Age 3

Power was supplied to rural Kansas, which had been hit hard by the depression, in March 1938. Many farmers could not afford the $5 hookups for electricity. As a result, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Rural Electrification Act which provided loans to farmers who wanted electricity. Brown County became the first to receive service.
1951 · The Twenty-Second Amendment

Age 16

Before the Twenty-second Amendment, the Presidency didn’t have a set number limit on how many times they could be elected or re-elected to the office of President of the United States. The Amendment sets that limit to two times, consecutively or not, and sets additional conditions for presidents who succeed to the unexpired terms of their predecessors.
