    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 2

    The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin - Sept 3, 1836 Treaty Treaty of the Cedars was concluded on the Fox River on September 3, 1836. The Menominee Nation ceded nearly 4 million acres of land for the following items every year for twenty years: $3,000 worth of food provisions, 2,000 lbs. of tobacco, 30 barrels of salt, agricultural supplies, and $500 per year.

    1854 · The Creation of the Republican Party

    Age 20

    A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim that the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.

    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name from Middle English fermo(u)r, fermer and Anglo-Norman French fermer (Old French fermier, medieval Latin firmarius). The term denoted in the first instance a tax farmer, one who undertook the collection of taxes, revenues, and imposts, paying a fixed (Latin firmus) sum for the proceeds, and only secondarily someone who rented land for the purpose of cultivation; it was not applied to an owner of cultivated land before the 17th century.

    Irish: Anglicized (part translated) form of Gaelic Mac an Scolóige ‘son of the husbandman’, a rare surname of northern and western Ireland.

    Americanized form (translation into English) of French Terrien ‘owner of a farmland’ or of its altered form Therrien . Compare Pharmer .
