Age 21

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

Possibly an altered spelling of the English family name Godber, from the medieval personal name Godebert ( see Gobert ), or of Goodbeer, Godbear, when not a variant of Godber, an occupational nickname for a brewer or a nickname for a toper. Alternatively, it may be an Americanized form of the German cognate Gutbier (‘good beer’).
