    1836 · Remember the Alamo

    Age 3

    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.


    Age 3

    The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin - Sept 3, 1836 Treaty Treaty of the Cedars was concluded on the Fox River on September 3, 1836.

Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.
