World Events (8)

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 Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
1941 · The Tuskegee Airmen

Age 6

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.  
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.

Name Meaning

English: occupational name for a driver of horses or oxen attached to a cart or plow, or of loose cattle, from a Middle English agent derivative of Old English drīfan ‘to drive’.
