1942 · Germans Sink Ships Near St. Simons Island

Age 13

Lights from homes along the coast of St. Simons Island provided a clear view of the SS Oklahoma for German U-boat Captain Reinhard Hardegen on April 8, 1942. A German torpedo was fired at the SS Oklahoma shortly after midnight. An hour later, a second torpedo was fired at the oil tanker Esso Baton Rouge. Both ships sunk and the attacks left 22 seamen dead. After the incident, residents of the Golden Isles panicked over concern of a German Invasion of the coast and were stringently observant of a nighttime blackout.  

Age 21

United States military forces play a leading role against North Korean and Chinese troops in Korean War.

Name Meaning

Americanized form of Dutch Wijngaerd, a topographic name meaning ‘vineyard’. This is also a common place name in the Netherlands, and the surname may be a habitational name from one of these places. Also, it could be a metonymic occupational name for a wine producer.
