1835 · Second Seminole War

Age 1

The Second Seminole War, often called the Florida War, was a conflict between Native Americans and the United States. Taking place from 1835 until 1842, it is regarded as the lengthiest, most expensive conflict that the United States had with the Native American people. There were roughly 1,600 US military casualties and over 3,000 deaths among the Seminole people. The war was followed by a brief period of peace, but the government's insistence on removing Native Americans from Florida would eventually result in further conflicts.
1836 · Remember the Alamo

Age 2

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.

Age 31

Abraham Lincoln is assassinated by John Wilkes Booth.
