World Events (8)

1937 · The Neutrality Act

Age 2

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 Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

Age 3

The infamous radio debut of War of the Worlds (an adaptation of the novel by Orson Welles) was broadcast from New Jersey. The drama program was framed as a news broadcast describing an alien invasion, which reportedly caused panic among a small subset of listeners that tuned in late. However, the newspaper industry exaggerated reports of the confusion to make it sound widespread. It's believed that the newspaper industry was attempting to take advantage of the situation to discredit the reliability of radio broadcasting.
1956 · The Federal Aid Highway Act

Age 21

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.
