    Age 22

    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.

    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Farrington in Lancashire, but perhaps occasionally from Farrington Gurney in Somerset. Both are named from Old English fearn ‘fern’ + tūn ‘settlement’. The surname also probably reached America via Ireland, where it is recorded as early as the 14th century.
