Age 16

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


from Middle English basket ‘basket’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a basket maker, or perhaps for someone who carried a basket or pannier as part of his work, for example, carrying baskets of stone to a lime kiln. In some cases it appears to have been a topographic or habitational name referring to a house distinguished by the sign of a basket (probably owned by a basket maker).

variant of Bascott, a habitational name from Bascote in Warwickshire, probably so named with an unattested Old English personal name Basuca + cot ‘cottage’.
