It's all about time on March 19th, 1918. That's when the Standard Time Act went into effect in the United States.

The Standard Time Act went into effect on that day, introducing time zones and Daylight Saving Time across the United States.

After World War I, Daylight Saving Time was abolished and throughout the next few decades, it would come and go before finally becoming standard across much of the United States.
