Summary
  • The 1950s: "If you were born in the 50s your parents spurred the biggest story of the 20th century-- the rise of the middle class. Millions of Americans left the cities for the suburbs to own a home of their own and a building boom began. Electricity was generated from nuclear power for the first time, yet milk was still delivered to the doorstep. Those born in the early fifties are known as Baby Boomers, which is the most influential and powerful group of Americans ever born"--Container
