John Nance Garner IV became the Vice-President in this election.

With the support of Canada and the United Kingdom, the Project came to employ more than 130,000 people and cost nearly $2 billion.

The first artificial nuclear explosion took place near Alamogordo New Mexico on July 16, 1945.

Orval Faubus had previously prevented the students from entering the school at the beginning of the term with the Arkansas National Guard - they blocked the door. President Eisenhower ordered federal troops - the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army - to guard the students and allow them entry.
