Age 11

Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.

Name Meaning

English:1. from a medieval personal name, Old Norse þórsteinn, composed of the elements þórr, name of the Scandinavian god of thunder ( see Thor ) + steinn ‘stone’, ‘rock’, hence ‘altar of Thor’ or perhaps ‘hammer of Thor’. 2. habitational name from Thurston in Suffolk, so called from the genitive case of the Old Norse personal name þóri ( see Thor ) + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’.
