    During the years 1799 to 1827, New York went through a period of gradual emancipation. A Gradual Emancipation Law was passed in 1799 which freed slave children born after July 4, 1799. However, they were indentured until 25 years old for women and 28 years old for men. A law passed 1817 which freed slaves born before 1799, yet delayed their emancipation for ten years.

    1836 · Remember the Alamo

    Age 12

    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

    Scottish (Lanarkshire) and English (East Anglia): from Middle English prentis, prentiz, a shortened form of apprentis ‘apprentice’ (Anglo-Norman French apprenti(e)z, prentiz, prentice, from Old French aprendre ‘to learn, to understand’, Latin appre(he)ndere ‘to understand, grasp’), denoting someone learning a craft or trade, but probably originating as a nickname in the case of the surname.
