The idea to spring forward and fall back was first suggested in an essay by  Benjamin Franklin  in 1784, and later proposed to British Parliament by Englishman William Willett 1907. It did not become a standard practice in the United States until 1966.  Daylight  Saving  Time  was originally instituted in the United States during World War I and World War II in order to take  advantage  of longer  daylight  hours and save energy for the war production.

In the years after World War II, individual states and communities decided whether they wanted to continue observing  Daylight  Saving  Time  and when to do so. This meant some cities were an  hour  behind others even though they were only separated by a few miles on a map.
In order to minimize the confusion,  Congress  passed the Uniform  Time Act in 1966, which standardized the length of  Daylight  Saving  Time  for the country.
