1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Age 3

Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.
1830 · The Oregon Trail

Age 3

Many people started their 2,170-mile West trek to settle the land found by Louis and Clark. They used large-wheeled wagons to pack most of their belongings and were guided by trails that were made by the previous trappers and traders who walked the area. Over time the trail needed annual improvements to make the trip faster and safer. Most of Interstate 80 and 84 cover most of the ground that was the original trail.
1844 · German Immigration to Texas

Age 17

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.
