World Events (8)

1836 · Remember the Alamo

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.

1836 · The Bridge War

On Halloween, tension between Cleveland and Ohio City began to boil over. Both sides of the river armed themselves with muskets and a cannon over the Columbus Street Bridge. These tensions were brought about because the bridge's location was diverting commercial attention away from Ohio City completely and the way that their concerns were being treated. Cleveland's mayor tried to reason with the enraged citizens but was greeted with a volley of rocks. No deaths were recorded but three men were injured.

1860 · Perry Monument on Public Square

The Perry Monument was erected at the center of Public Square to commemorate the victory of the Battle of Lake Erie by Oliver Hazard Perry. It was Ohio's first monumental sculpture. It has since been moved to Fort Huntington Park.

Name Meaning

English: topographic name from Middle English dene ‘valley’ (Old English denu), or a habitational name from any of several places in various parts of England named Dean or Dene from this word.

English: nickname or occupational name for the servant of a dean or nickname for someone thought to resemble a dean. A dean was an ecclesiastical official, the head of a chapter of canons or a church official with jurisdiction over a sub-division of an archdeaconry. Though no doubt some deans had illegitimate children, they were officially celibate, and in the main the surname is probably a nickname in origin, similar to Bishop , Prior , Priest , and Monk . The Middle English word deen, dien, dein, is a borrowing of Old French d(e)ien, doien from Latin decanus (originally a leader of ten men, from decem ‘ten’), and thus is a cognate of Deacon .

English: from the Middle English personal name Deyne (or Dene) a rhyming pet form of Reynald (see Reginald ).
