1956 · The Federal Aid Highway Act

Age 1

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.
1957 · Troops are sent to Central High School

Age 2

In September 1957, troops were sent to Central High school in Little Rock, Arkansas. The reason was that nine African American children were going to start going to this school and putting the new law of Brown v Board of Education into action. These nine children became known as the Little Rock nine.
1971 · The Twenty-Sixth Amendment

Age 16

The Twenty-sixth Amendment prohibits the states and the federal government from using age as a reason for denying the right to vote to citizens who are eighteen years old or older.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name for someone from either of two places called Mildenhall, in Suffolk and Wiltshire. The place in Suffolk may have been named in Old English as ‘middle nook of land’, from middel + halh, or it may be of the same origin as the Wiltshire place name, ‘Milda's nook of land’, from an unattested Old English personal name + halh. The spelling Mendenhall does not appear in English sources, and this may be a U.S. variant.
