In 1939, to prevent Nazis to take it the Achilles transported the Stargate found in Giza from Egypt to the USA. There, Professor Langford, with the help of the US Air Force, made experiment on the Stargate as President Roosevelt thought it was some kind of weapon. But in 1945, after the disapearance of Dr. Ernest Littlefield through an activated Stargate, the military stopped all experiment and stored the Stargate inside a military warehouse located in Washington, D.C. (Stargate: Continuum, SG1: "The Torment of Tantalus", "1969").
