1918 · Attempting to Stop the War

Age 1

To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.
1929 · The Great Depression Arrives

Age 12

Like most of the country, the economy of Texas suffered greatly after the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Thousands of city workers were suddenly unemployed and relied on a variety of government relief programs; unemployed Mexican citizens were required to take one-way bus tickets to Mexico.
1942 · The Japanese American internment

Age 25

Caused by the tensions between the United States and the Empire of Japan, the internment of Japanese Americans caused many to be forced out of their homes and forcibly relocated into concentration camps in the western states. More than 110,000 Japanese Americans were forced into these camps in fear that some of them were spies for Japan.

Name Meaning
