Age 1

A strike involving more than 2,000 workers from 20 textile mills in Paterson, New Jersey. Many of those involved were children, Irish, or both. The primary goal of the strike was to reduce the daily working hours from 13.5 to 11. Employers refused to negotiate, but the strike ended with a declaration that the workdays would now be 12 hours during the week and 9 hours on Saturdays. Paterson employers also blacklisted many of the strike leaders and their families.
1836 · Remember the Alamo

Age 2

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.

Age 10

The 1844 revision of the New Jersey State Constitution made some significant changes. Suffrage rights were revoked from women and non-whites, meaning that only white men could vote. A separation of powers was established between executive, legislative, and judicial branches. A new bill of rights was provided, and the state now had the right to elect the governor.
