World Events (8)

1862 · Battle of Shiloh

The battle of Shiloh took place on April 6, 1862 and April 7, 1862. Confederate soldiers camp through the woods next to where the Union soldiers were camped at Pittsburg Landing on the Tennessee River. With 23,000 casualties this was the bloodiest battle of the Civil War up to this point.


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

1870 · The Fifteenth Amendment

Prohibits the federal government and each state from denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's race, color, or previous condition of servitude. It was the last of the Reconstruction Amendments.

Name Meaning

Americanized form of German Hauser or its Dutch equivalents Huijser, Huiser and Huizer.

English (Middlesex): perhaps an occupational name from Middle English housere ‘builder’, though no medieval bearers have been found, and so in Britain the name may alternatively be exclusively of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) origin (see Hauser , compare 1 above).
