World Events (8)

1836 · Remember the Alamo

Age 4

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.
1836 · The Bridge War

Age 4

On Halloween, tension between Cleveland and Ohio City began to boil over. Both sides of the river armed themselves with muskets and a cannon over the Columbus Street Bridge. These tensions were brought about because the bridge's location was diverting commercial attention away from Ohio City completely and the way that their concerns were being treated. Cleveland's mayor tried to reason with the enraged citizens but was greeted with a volley of rocks. No deaths were recorded but three men were injured.
1851 · Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad

Age 19

The Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad started running in February 1851, 15 years after it was charted for construction. It later absorbed a small bankrupt railroad in 1861 to help expand its services beyond just Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati. In May 1868, the railroad merged with the Bellefontaine Railway to connect the current cities with Indianapolis.

Name Meaning

1 English: unexplained.2 Possibly a Americanized spelling of French Duthie or Dutey, both variants of Dutil , or a translation of French Dudevoir, which is probably a dit-name in origin, from one of the regiments that served in New France, perhaps a nickname for someone obsessed with duty.
