    1833 · The Town of Chicago is Founded

    Age 1

    Chicago became an incorporated town after the Potawatomi Native Americans and the United States Government signed the Treaty of Chicago. The name comes from the indigenous word shikaakwa meaning onion, or something similar, because of the wild garlic that grew abundantly in the area.

    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.

    1855 · Lager Beer Riot

    Age 23

    The Lager Beer Riot came at a time in Chicago's history where large waves of Irish and German immigrants moved to the city. The Riot was started because the Mayor of the city renewed enforcement of an old liquor ordinance mandating that taverns be closed on Sundays and to raise the cost of a license to sell liquor from $50 to $300 each year. This didn't sit well with the German immigrants because they felt like it was directed towards them and their heritage. There was only one death throughout the time of the riot, though protesters claimed that it was more.
