Age 8
On June 28, 1776, the Battle of Sullivan's Island takes place on Sullivan's Island, South Carolina.

1781 · The First Constitution
Age 13
Serving the newly created United States of America as the first constitution, the Articles of Confederation were an agreement among the 13 original states preserving the independence and sovereignty of the states. But with a limited central government, the Constitutional Convention came together to replace the Articles of Confederation with a more established Constitution and central government on where the states can be represented and voice their concerns and comments to build up the nation.

Name Meaning

English (Suffolk and Essex): habitational name, perhaps from Bittesby in Leicestershire. The village was depopulated in 1494 to make way for sheep pastures. The pronunciation of the surname as Bekysby (1459) and Bixby (1539) would have arisen when bearers of the name migrated away from Leicestershire. Alternatively, Bixby might be an altered form of Bigby or Bixley, a Suffolk name.
