The Yalta Conference was held in Crimea to talk about establishing peace and postwar reorganization in post-World War II Europe.

Less than 30-50% of the normal rainfall was received during this period. The state was plagued with dust storms similar to those from the infamous Dust Bowl. The drought ended in a destructive manner throughout 1957; storms, hail, tornadoes, and deadly floods.

The Twenty-third Amendment gives the residents in the District of Columbia the right to vote in presidential elections and to give the district electors in the Electoral College.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places called Branton in South Yorkshire (formerly in West Yorkshire) and Northumberland or from Braunton in Devon. The first and last are named with Old English brōm ‘broom’ + tūn ‘farmstead’, ‘settlement’. The second is from an Old English word brēmen ‘overgrown with broom’ + tūn ‘farmstead’.
