1918 · Attempting to Stop the War

Age 1

To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.
1929 · The Great Depression Arrives

Age 12

Like most of the country, the economy of Texas suffered greatly after the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Thousands of city workers were suddenly unemployed and relied on a variety of government relief programs; unemployed Mexican citizens were required to take one-way bus tickets to Mexico.
1937 · The Neutrality Act

Age 20

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 Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

Name Meaning

Spanish (Hernández) and Jewish (Sephardic): patronymic from the personal name Hernando ( see Fernando ). This surname also became established in southern Italy, mainly in Naples and Palermo, since the period of Spanish dominance there, and as a result of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and Portugal at the end of the 15th century, many of whom moved to Italy.
