Last year we looked at obscure holidays. This year, let’s look at major world events that occurred each week.  Make your best guess in the comments as to the years of each event.  No googling!

Week #29

July 20, ____ - An agreement in Geneva Switzerland ended hostilities between French forces in Vietnam and the People's Army of Vietnam.

July 20, ____ - Apollo 11 Astronaut Neil Armstrong took his first step on the moon.

July 21, ____ - Spain ceded Guam to the United States.

July 23, ____ - A revolution changed Egypt from a monarchy to a republic.


  1. 1) the Geneva Accord was signed in 1954

    2) A small step for man, a giant leap for mankind was in 1969

    3) Guam and Puerto Rico were ceded to the U.S. before 1900, I think 1898

    4) The false hope for the Coptic Christian Community was in 1953.

    Hope you are doing okay in this sweltering weather

    1. #4 was one year off, but that's close enough for me! 100%

      It's hot here but I'm sure FL is hotter. How are you holding up?
