    Age 34

    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

    English (Warwickshire and Northamptonshire): from the Middle English personal name Sabin (from Latin Sabinus; see 2 below) or its female equivalent Sabine (from Latin Sabina). In medieval England the feminine form was always more popular as a personal name.

    French: from the Old French personal name Sabin, from Latin Sabinus. The name was originally referred to the Sabines, an ancient Italic people of central Italy whose name is of uncertain origin. In the 8th century BC the Romans slaughtered the Sabine menfolk and carried off the women. More influential as far as name-giving is concerned was the existence of several early Christian saints named Sabinus.

    Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Sabháin ‘descendant of Sabhán’, a personal name based on sabh ‘cub’. As an Irish surname, this has mostly been absorbed into Savage .
