World Events (3)

1941 · Florida Involvement in World War II

Age 9

Similar to the first World War, Florida's location and temperature served as an ideal location for military training; in fact, Florida would end up having 172 military installations. As a result of World War II growth, Camp Blanding became the fourth largest city in Florida, capable of housing over 55,000 soldiers. Many Floridians sacrificed their lives among other Americans to win the war; it's estimated that about 3,000 U.S. deaths were from Floridian troops.
1953 · Ohio state oficially admitted into the Union

Age 21

President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a law recognizing that Ohio was admitted into the Union, since it had previously slipped through the cracks. The official date of admittance was agreed upon as March 1, 1803, ratified as of May 19, 1953.
1962 · The Cuban Missile Crisis

Age 30

"One of the most direct confrontations of the Cold War was the Cuban Missile Crisis in October of 1962, which primarily took place just south of Florida. Soviet Leader Nikita Khrushchev had crafted a secret agreement with Cuba (under Fidel Castro) to create nuclear missiles in Cuba to deter further invasions. U.S. intelligence agents discovered evidence of this activity, so President Kennedy issued an official warning against Cuba's creation of these weapons. Cuba and the Soviet Union did not comply. After much debate regarding the correct course of action, Kennedy opted to create a naval ""quarantine"" around Cuba. This initiated a series of intense communications between Kennedy and Khrushchev, both publicly and directly. The conflict escalated to the point that a U.S jet was shot down over Cuba as the countries made increasingly stern ultimatums. Kennedy instructed the Soviets to remove missiles with the promise that the U.S. would not attack Cuba, and the Soviets agreed."
