1836 · Remember the Alamo

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.


U.S. acquires vast tracts of Mexican territory in wake of Mexican War including California and New Mexico.


Tennessee was known as the Volunteer State because during the Mexican War the government asked Tennessee for 3,000 volunteer soldiers and 30,000 joined.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name, probably a variant of Dewsbury, a habitational name from a place so named in Yorkshire, with loss of the medial s, no doubt reflecting loss of association with the original Yorkshire placename following migration.
