1941 · Florida Involvement in World War II

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.

1951 · The Twenty-Second Amendment

Before the Twenty-second Amendment, the Presidency didn’t have a set number limit on how many times they could be elected or re-elected to the office of President of the United States. The Amendment sets that limit to two times, consecutively or not, and sets additional conditions for presidents who succeed to the unexpired terms of their predecessors.

Name Meaning

Transferred use of the surname, in origin denoting a migrant from the province of Lorraine in eastern France. This derives its name from Latin Lotharingia ‘territory of the people of Lothar’. The latter is a Germanic personal name derived from hlud ‘fame’ + heri, hari ‘army’. Lorraine began to be used as a girl's name in Scotland in the 19th century, and for a time in the second half of the 20th century enjoyed great popularity, which has since waned.
