Timeline

1935 - In the year that Laura Welborn was born, on August 14, the Social Security Act was signed into law. The purpose was to "provide federal assistance to those unable to work".

The Act survived many Supreme Court challenges and the Administration continues until today.

1944 - Laura was merely 9 years old when on June 6th, the largest amphibious invasion in history was launched - the Normandy landing (called D-Day).

Almost 5,000 landing and assault craft, 289 escort vessels, and 277 minesweepers were involved.

An invasion on mainland Japan had been planned but President Truman ordered the bombs dropped instead.

1948 - By the time she was merely 13 years old, on January 30th, Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in New Delhi by a member of a Hindu nationalist party who thought that Gandhi was too accommodating to Muslims.
