A government shutdown last week would’ve been the 13th in all of U.S. government shutdown history. It was narrowly avoided when a stopgap measure passed through Congress just hours before the Sept. 30 midnight deadline.

You see, the stopgap legislation finances the government through Dec. 11.
Since 1980, there have been 12 government shutdowns.
