    1836 · Remember the Alamo

    Age 1

    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.

    1836 · The Massive Internal Improvements Act

    Age 1

    The Massive Internal Improvements Act of 1836 loaned Indiana $10,000,000 to create infrastructure such as canals, railroads, and roads across the state. The act was signed by Whig Governor Noah Noble and passed by the Indiana General Assembly. However, the financial crisis known as the Panic of 1837 thwarted these plans as costs ballooned. Construction on the infrastructure was not completed and the state debt rapidly increased.

    Name Meaning

    English and Scottish: from the usual vernacular English form (recorded from the 13th century onward) of the New Testament Greek personal name Andreas . In North America, the English form of the surname has absorbed many cognates from other languages, e.g. Czech Ondřej (see Ondrey ) and Albanian Ndreu , and also their patronymics and other derivatives (see examples at Andrews ).

    History: The surname Andrew was first brought to North America from England by Robert Andrew (died 1668), who settled in Boxford, MA.
