Timeline

1916 - In the year that Belle Gonzalez was born, in June, the U.S. Congress authorized a plan to expand the armed forces over the next five years. Called the National Defense Act of 1916, the national law expanded the National Guard and Army (the Army added an aviation unit), created the Reserves, and gave the President expanded authority to federalize the National Guard. It also allowed the government to stockpile, in advance, materiel to be used in wartime.

1967 - She was 51 years old when on October 2nd, Thurgood Marshall was sworn in as the first black US Supreme Court justice.

After an exhaustive (and long) investigation it came to be believed that two individuals from Libya had planted the bomb.
