On October 22, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Highway Beautification Act, which attempted to limit billboards and other forms of outdoor advertising, as well as junkyards and other unsightly roadside messes, along America’s interstate highways. The act also encouraged “scenic enhancement” by funding local efforts to clean up and landscape the green spaces on either side of the roadways. Check out these resources from the CGP:

On October 27, 1858, future President Theodore Roosevelt is born in New York City. He served in the New York state legislature from 1881 to 1884, as U.S. Civil Service commissioner from 1885 to 1889 in Washington, D.C., and then as New York City’s police commissioner from 1895 to 1897. President William McKinley chose Roosevelt as assistant secretary of the Navy later that year. The Republican Party nominated him to be William McKinley’s vice-presidential running mate in 1900. Roosevelt began the first of his two terms in the White House after President McKinley was shot by an assassin in 1901. Check out these resources from the CGP:
