    1830 · The Second Great Awakening

    Age 2

Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.

    1830 · The Oregon Trail

    Age 2

    Many people started their 2,170-mile West trek to settle the land found by Louis and Clark. They used large-wheeled wagons to pack most of their belongings and were guided by trails that were made by the previous trappers and traders who walked the area. Over time the trail needed annual improvements to make the trip faster and safer. Most of Interstate 80 and 84 cover most of the ground that was the original trail.


    Age 35

    Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.

    Name Meaning

    English (of Norman origin): from the Middle English personal names Everard and Everet. These might occasionally be from the Old English form of the name, Eoforheard (from eofor ‘boar’ + heard ‘hardy, brave’), but many bearers of this name were undoubtedly Normans, who took it from the cognate ancient Germanic Eburhard, Everhard.
