World Events (8)


Age 1

Charles Lindbergh makes the first solo nonstop transatlantic flight in his plane The Spirit of St. Louis.
1941 · The Tuskegee Airmen

Age 15

The first African-American military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps were known as the Tuskegee Airmen, after the Tuskegee Army Air Field where they trained. The group flew over 15,000 individual sorties during World War II which earned them over 150 Distinguished Flying Crosses.  
1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 22

The Berlin Blockade was the first major crises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked all access to the sectors of Berlin under Western control and offered to drop the blockade if the newly introduced Deutsche Mark was removed from West Berlin. The Berlin Blockade showed the different ideological and economic visions for postwar Europe. Even though there wasn't any fire fight during the cold war, many of these skirmishes arose and almost caused nuclear war on multiple occasions.

Name Meaning

English: occupational name for a maker of string or bow strings, from an agent derivative of Middle English streng ‘string’. In Yorkshire, where it is still particularly common, Redmonds argues that the surname may have been connected with iron working, a stringer having operated some form of specialist hearth.
