So here are some New Years 2020 time facts:When World War 2 started, the Civil War felt as far away to Americans as WW2 feels to us now. Speaking of World War 2, the world wars were pretty close together. If World War 2 were starting today, World War 1 would feel about as far back to us as 9/11. As for you, if you’re 60 or older, you were born closer to the 1800s than today. Worth mentioning that my 94-year-old grandmother was born closer to the Andrew Jackson administration than to today.
