    World Events (8)

    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.
    1844 · German Immigration to Texas
    Age 9
    Over 7,000 German immigrants arrived in Texas. Some of these new arrivals died in epidemics; those that survived ended up living in cities such as San Antonio, Galveston, and Houston. Other German settlers went to the Texas Hill Country and formed the western portion of the German Belt, where new towns were founded: New Braunfels and Fredericksburg.
    1849 · Capitol Building Destroyed by Fire
    Age 14
    The capitol building in Montgomery was destroyed by fire on December 14, 1849, the 30th anniversary of the state.

    Name Meaning

    English: nickname from Middle English duk(ke), duck, doke, dook ‘duck’ (Old English dūce), either from a perceived resemblance (perhaps a waddling gait) or from association with wild fowling. Compare Duck , Drake .English: from the Middle English personal name Duk or Duke. In northern England this is usually a pet form of Marmaduke. It may alternatively be a survival of one or more Old English personal names, though it is uncertain whether they were still current in the period of surname formation. Old English Ducc(a) is attested in placenames like Duxford (Cambridgeshire) and Duckington (Cheshire), and was perhaps interchangeable with Docc, attested in Doxey (Staffordshire) and Doxford (Northumberland). Duke could also represent Old English Deowuc (as in Deuxhill, Shropshire). A surname from Marmaduke is on record until at least 1881 and derives from the personal name Marmaduke, apparently an Anglo-Norman French pronunciation of Old Irish Maolmaedóc ‘devotee of Maedóc’; see Duckett .Americanized form of Polish Duk: nickname from dukać ‘to stammer or falter’.
