1912 · The Girl Scouts

Age 1

Like the Boy Scouts of America, The Girl Scouts is a youth organization for girls in the United States. Its purpose is to prepare girls to empower themselves and by acquiring practical skills.

Age 2

A strike led by silk mill workers in Paterson, New Jersey. The primary demands of the strike were focused on improved quality of working conditions and establishing an eight-hour workday limit. Two protestors were killed during the strike, and over 1,850 workers were arrested. The strike ultimately ended in failure, due to the manufacturers' inability to accept the demands of the strikes.

Age 22

"New Jersey was severely impacted by the Great Depression. In response to the economic woes of the country, President Franklin D Roosevelt issued a series of programs and regulations referred to as the ""New Deal"". One-tenth of the New Jersey population was already using New Deal programs by 1933."

Name Meaning

English (very common in England, especially in the south Midlands, and in Wales) and German (especially northwestern Germany): patronymic from the personal name Adam . In the U.S. this form has absorbed many patronymics and other derivatives of Adam in languages other than English. (For forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 .)
