By October 6th, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany held full control of the previously Polish lands. Eventually, the invasion of Poland lead to World War II.

1956 - By the time she was 17 years old, this was the year that the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, became an international sensation.

Elvis scandalized adults and thrilled teens.

1961 - At the age of 22 years old, Evelyn was alive when on May 5th, Navy Cmdr. Alan B. Shepard, Jr., made the first manned Project Mercury flight, MR-3, in a spacecraft he named Freedom 7. He was the second man to go into space, the first was Yuri Gagarin - a Soviet cosmonaut.

An allegedly drunk African-American driver was stopped by LA police and, after a fight, police brutality was alleged - and the riots began. 34 people died in the rioting and over $40 million in property damage occurred. The National Guard was called in to help the LA police quell rioting.

1970 - Evelyn was 31 years old when on May 4th, four students at Kent State University in Ohio were shot and killed by National Guardsmen.
