1936 · The Last Public Hanging in Kentucky

Age 7

The hanging of Rainey Bethea on August 14,1936, in Owensboro, Kentucky was the last pubic hanging in the state and the United States. Anywhere from 15,000-20,000 people showed up for this event. The media was all over the hanging since the Sheriff of Davies county was a female, even though she did not pull levers. Because of the media coverage and the circus it caused, this was the last hanging.
1951 · The Twenty-Second Amendment

Age 22

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 (very common in England, especially in the south Midlands, and in Wales) and German (especially northwestern Germany): patronymic from the personal name Adam . In the U.S. this form has absorbed many patronymics and other derivatives of Adam in languages other than English. (For forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 .)
