This Day in History (TDIH): 1883 – American and Canadian railroads begin using the four continental time zones that are still in use today. The power the railroads possessed at the time forced the governments of both countries to adopt the time zones.
Fact of the Day (FOTD): Before official time zones, time was kept by locating the sun at “high noon”, or when the sun was at its apex in the sky. This caused numerous problems for the railroads because of local differences, thus the need for the time zones.
