23 Little-Known Events That Changed America
Sometimes little events can have a big impact. That's the idea behind our
January issue. In these pages, we focus on different moments in U.S. history and see the ripple effect they created for future generations. From a war in New England in 1637 to the discovery of oil in Pennsylvania in 1859, from a law that gave the federal government the power to protect citizens by regulating meat, food, and drugs in 1906 to a law that helped returning World War II soldiers readjust to life as civilians in 1944, from the establishment of standard time in 1883 to the first efforts to make people aware of the dangers of pesticides in 1962, American history is full of fascinating, little-known but pivotal events that often get overlooked. You won't want to miss this issue that puts a spotlight on some interesting moments in our history.
