Age 24

The Battle of Gettysburg involved the largest number of casualties of the entire Civil war and is often described as the war's turning point. Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers lost their lives during the three-day Battle. To honor the fallen soldiers, President Abraham Lincoln read his historic Gettysburg Address and helped those listening by redefining the purpose of the war.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a pair of villages in Northumbria named with Old English bēan ‘beans’ (a collective singular) or beonet ‘bent grass’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. The name is now most frequent in the West Midlands, however, so it may be that a place of the same name in that area should be sought as its origin.
