American and Canadian railroads enacted time zones — a concept that schedules all aspects of life today — on this day in history, Nov. 18, 1883.
The rail industry’s creation of time zones was a brazen attempt to bend time to its will.
It brought sanity to a sprawling patchwork system of local timekeeping based on the ancient method of following the sun, the system used since human time began.
“Back in the early 1800s, the sun served as the official ‘clock’ in the U.S., and time was based on each city’s own solar noon, or the point when the sun is highest in the sky,” Union Pacific railroad writes in its history of time zones.
“This timekeeping method resulted in the creation of more than 300 local time zones across the country — not to mention disparity in local time depending on your location. So, for example, while it could be 12:09 p.m. in New York, it could also be 12:17 p.m. in Chicago.”
The system that railroads pioneered did not become federal law until the passage of the Standard Time Act on March 19, 1918, amid World War I.
With an estimated 100,000 Americans alive today over the age of 100, tens of thousands of U.S. citizens still alive now were born into a world without uniform time.
Charles F. Dowd, an educator at what’s now Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, first proposed the concept of time zones across the U.S. in 1870.
“Dowd’s plan divided the country into four time zones. He used the 75th meridian, which runs through New York State, as the base for his Eastern Standard Time,” explains the Madison Historical Society from the Connecticut hometown of the time pioneer.

January 6th “insurrection” pales in comparison
On this day in 1970, Japanese novelist Mishima Yukioand four members of his Shield Society, a private army formed to preserve Japan’s martial spirit, seized a military headquarters in Tokyo, and he later committed seppuku.
Whoa, whoa, no need to insult neanderthals.

On this day, Nov 26:
1863 - Confederate troops under General Braxton Bragg retreated from Chattanooga. Bragg resigned shortly thereafter.
On this day in Civil War History:
"** 1864 - In Georgia, Union General Judson Kilpatrick began pursuing Confederate General Joseph Wheeler between Waynesboro and Millen. The engagment ended on December 4. The battle allowed Union General Sherman to march to Savannah, Georgia on his famous “March to the Sea.”**
I delight in these stories of the Confederates losing as much I enjoy the stories of allied troops whomping Nazis.
I see some interesting comparisons with Sherman’s march to the sea and Israel’s current push to rid Gaza of Hamas. The action may have been/may be necessary but the collateral damage and diaspora did/will create impacts that were/will be felt for generations.
