The body of an unknown soldier - selected by Army Sgt. Edward F.

President Warren G. Harding officiated at the interment ceremonies.

Taking 5 years to build, the 4,200-foot-long suspension bridge was an engineering marvel of its time - 11 men died during construction.

The same summer, there were riots in Beaumont, Texas and Harlem, New York.

1953 - Dorothy was 32 years old when on January 20th, Dwight D. Eisenhower became the 34th President of the United States. Formerly the 1st Supreme Allied Commander Europe in World War II, Eisenhower had never previously held a political office.
