Washington’s “Purple Heart” was awarded to only three known soldiers during the Revolution- Elijah Churchill, William Brown and Daniel Bissell, Jr. The award was largely forgotten about until the 1930’s when it was reestablished. US forces invaded Guadalcanal in 1942. In 1959, the first US satellite to photograph the Earth was launched.
These are kind of interesting, in 1947 a Norwegian explorer completed a 4,300 mile ocean voyage on a wooden raft. In 1987, Lynne Cox swam the Bering Strait from the US to the Soviet Union.
