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 13

U.S. acquires vast tracts of Mexican territory in wake of Mexican War including California and New Mexico.

Age 28

Arkansas supplied an estimated 50,000 men to the Confederate Army andabout 15,000 to the Union Army.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from either of two places called Walworth, in Greater London and County Durham, both named with Old English w(e)alh ‘Briton’, genitive plural wala ( see Wallace ) + worð ‘enclosure’. The present-day concentration of the name in Yorkshire suggests the latter is the more likely source. Compare Wallwork .
