Age 1

The Korean War was a civil war between North and South Korea. North Korea had support of China and the Soviet Union while South Korea gained support from the United States. The war broke out as a product of the Cold War because of the different ideologies that each side had for what government is. The fighting stopped when an armistice was signed but no peace treaty was ever established. To some the war is still progressing but it is in a stage of frozen conflict.

1956 · The Federal Aid Highway Act

Age 7

With the construction of 41,000 miles of the Interstate Highway System, the Federal Aid Highway Act made way for the largest public works project in American history at that time. One of the purposes was to provide military access to places in case of an attack.
