1754 · Seven Years' War

Age 24

The Seven Years' War began as a North American conflict then stretched between England and France. England, along with allies, battled France in America, India, and Europe, making it arguably the first global war. The conflict ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1763 and England was victorious. The Seven Years' war ultimately led to discontent in the colonies and the American Revolution.
1775 · The Shot Heard Around the World

Age 45

"On April 18, 1775, a shot known as the ""shot heard around the world"" was fired between American colonists and British troops in Lexington, Massachusetts. This began the American War for Independence. Fifteen months later, Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence. The Treaty of Paris was signed in September 1783 which ended the war. The colonies were no longer under British rule. Many who fought for the British fled to Canada, the West Indies, and some to England."

Name Meaning

English: from Middle English bullok ‘bullock’ (Old English bulluc), referring to a young bull rather than a castrated one, probably applied as a nickname for an exuberant young man, or a metonymic occupational name for a keeper of bullocks.
