    1850 · Compromise of 1850

    Age 1

    The United States Congress passed a package of five separate bills in an attempt to decrease tensions between the slave states and free states. The compromise itself was received gratefully, but both sides disapproved of certain components contained in the laws. Texas was impacted in several ways; mainly, the state surrendered its claim to New Mexico (and other claims north of 36°30′) but retained the Texas Panhandle. The federal government also took over the public debt for Texas.


    Age 14

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


    Age 16

    Abraham Lincoln is assassinated by John Wilkes Booth.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish: habitational name from Grantham in Lincolnshire, recorded in Domesday Book as Graham (as well as Grantham, Grandham, and Granham). See also Grantham .

    Irish (especially Ulster): in Ireland Graham is generally the Scottish name, but it has additionally been adopted as an Anglicized form of both Ó Creacháin (see Crehan ) and Ó Gormghaile (see Gormley ).

    History: The surname Graham was taken to Scotland at the beginning of the 12th century by the Norman baron William de Graham, holder of the manor of Grantham in Lincolnshire, from whom many if not all modern bearers are probably descended. The chief of Clan Graham is the Duke of Montrose.
