1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 1

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.
1948 · The Dixiecrats

Age 1

Dixiecrats were members of a right-wing splinter group who opposed federal intervention on state matters such as race and labor relations. After failing to prevent the nomination of Harry Truman at the Democratic National Convention, over 6,000 people from 13 southern states met at the Dixiecrat Convention in Birmingham on July 17, 1948. Here, Governor Strom Thurmond was nominated for president and Governor Fielding L. Wright was nominated for vice president. The Dixiecrats hoped to win enough electoral-college votes in the southern states to prevent either Republican or Democrat nominee from winning enough electoral votes for election. Truman was elected on November 2, 1948, and the Dixiecrats received only 39 electoral votes.

Age 16

President John F. Kennedy is assassinated in Dallas, Texas.
