Letter from granddaughter of Billie Woodrow Wilson to great grandson

Contributor: doddemagen Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

You asked about family history. It is so exciting, I agree, to get caught up in the spirit of Elijah! Grandpa's dad was an exceptional man, who I knew for the first 26 years of my life. Billy Woodrow Wilson, born in 1913. He was a funny pessimist! For example he always said he never buys green bananas because he wouldn't want them to go to waste if he didn't live long enough to see them ripen! He always had a smirk and chuckled to himself when he thought of something funny. Sometimes he would chuckle himself into silent shaking because he couldn't talk he was laughing too hard! He always liked to go out on the porch to visit and always had a good story to share about mischief from when he was a boy. I remember one time he came to one of my college orchestra concerts and he looked around the concert hall and simply remarked to your dad, "They sure could fit a lot of hay in this building." And then he laughed at his own cleverness. :-) In the last few weeks of his life he was charting the stars by drawing on the windows to track them, his own little science experiment. :-) One of my favorite stories of when he was a boy was the Christmas his parents left him and his cousin alone for a whole week after Christmas. They had gotten bb guns and decided to try shooting a glass ornament on the tree. That was so much fun that they ended up shooting all the ornaments on the tree, to obliteration! haha!

1913
Billie Woodrow Wilson was born on 4 Mar 1913
Billie Woodrow Wilson was 15 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Billie Woodrow Wilson was 18 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Billie Woodrow Wilson was 31 years old when World War II: The Allied invasion of Normandy—codenamed Operation Overlord—begins with the execution of Operation Neptune (commonly referred to as D-Day), the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
Billie Woodrow Wilson was 45 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Billie Woodrow Wilson was 52 years old when Martin Luther King Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his death in 1968. Born in Atlanta, King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, tactics his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi helped inspire.
Billie Woodrow Wilson was 60 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
