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.
1848 · Slavery is Abolished

Age 15

In 1840, the American Anti-Slavery Society split and slavery started being outlawed in the state. In Canterbury, Connecticut, Prudence Crandall started a school for young African American girls. The people got mad and Crandall was taken to court. The case was lost and that was the beginning of many other cases that would be lost, but it was also the start of having slavery abolished.

Age 30

Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
