Timeline

1937 - In the year that Leroy Delaney was born, on May 6th, the German zeppelin the Hindenburg caught fire and blew up. The Hindenburg was a passenger ship traveling to Frankfurt Germany. It tried to dock in New Jersey, one of the stops, and something went wrong - it blew up. Thirty-six people were killed out of the 97 on board - 13 passengers, 22 crewmen, and one ground worker. The reasons for the explosion are still disputed.

1956 - At the age of 19 years old, Leroy was alive when this was the year that the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, became an international sensation.

Elvis scandalized adults and thrilled teens.

It's believed that the accident was caused when Princess Grace, who was driving, had a mild stroke.
