1942 · Germans Sink Ships Near St. Simons Island

Age 17

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.  
1947 · The Presidential Succession Act

Age 22

Name Meaning

Some absurdly translate this name 'home- free, home-peace, or peace at home.' It is without doubt the same with Cundfrid, which Wachter renders 'defensor notus,' i.e. illustrious protector. Kun-frid would translate 'strong protector.' The nicknames are Humps, Nump, and Numps.
