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.
1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 19

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.
