1995: A budget standoff between Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. Congress forces the federal government to temporarily close national parks and museums and to run most government offices with skeleton staffs. The shutdown would last through Nov. 19 before ending, with another shutdown taking place Dec. 16, 1995, to Jan. 6, 1996, for a total of 28 days.
