1941 · The Four Freedoms

Age 3

President Roosevelt spoke in front of Congress and gave a speech on what Freedoms everyone should be granted. First being the Freedom of Speech. Second, the freedom of Religion, Third, The Freedom from Want, and Fourth, the Freedom from Fear. Being a big deal, FDR didn't just say that all people should have these freedoms because Americans already expected these freedoms.
1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 10

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

From the personal name Virgil, a vernacular form of the Latin personal name Vergilius, Virgilius, which was probably of Etruscan origin. The name is famous in particular as that of the Latin poet Publius Vergilius Maro ( 70–19 bc ), author of the Aeneid. Virgil was much admired in medieval Europe; there were attempts to make him into an honorary Christian (even though he actually lived before the time of Christ), and Dante made him his guide through the Inferno and Purgatorio, a model of classical moderation and reason. This was also the name of an early saint, a 6th-century bishop of Arles. The forename is popular mainly in the U.S., and it is possible that the surname was coined here in at least some cases.
