1919 · The Eighteenth Amendment

Age 0

The Eighteenth Amendment established a prohibition on all intoxicating liquors in the United States.

Making it the first and only amendment that has been repealed.

Age 1

The Prohibition Era. Sale and manufacture of alcoholic liquors outlawed. A mushrooming of illegal drinking joints, home-produced alcohol and gangsterism.
1937 · The Neutrality Act

Age 18

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 Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.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

English: probably a habitational name from some lost place named Childerhouse, from Old English cildra, genitive plural of cild ‘child’ + hūs ‘house’. This may have referred to some form of orphanage perhaps run by a religious order, or perhaps the first element is to be understood in its later sense as a term of status ( see Child ).
