USA adopts Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) worldwide

Wow, I had always thought that it was adopted much, much later than what history tells us.  1884 – The International Meridian Conference in Washington, D.C., USA adopts Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) worldwide, creating 24 international time zones with longitude zero at the Greenwich meridian  Did you already know that?  I didn’t learn that at school, or I was gone that day.vdomainhosting-if-it-isnt-tested-it-doesnt-work
