    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 4
    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 14
    Iowa is the 29th state.
    1857 · The State Capital moves to Des Moines
    Age 25
    The Capitol was located in Iowa City until the 1st General Assembly of Iowa recognized that the Capitol should be moved farther west than Iowa City. Land was found two miles from the Des Moines River to start construction of the new building. Today the Capitol building still stands on its original plot.

    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English personal name Hulle, a pet form of Hugh or of its common diminutives Hulin, Hulot (see Hewlett and Huling ).English: in southwest England and the west and central Midlands sometimes a topographical or habitational name for someone who lived on or by a hill (Middle English atte hulle, from Old English hyll), or from a place with this name. However, this word and the derived names will have usually assumed the standard form Hill in modern times, as in the case of Hill (Gloucestershire), which was usually spelt Hull or Hulle during the Middle Ages. Hull with this origin was also once the name of two other places, now lost, one in Great Budworth (Cheshire), and the other in Inkpen (Berkshire). See also Hell .English: perhaps a habitational name from Kingston upon Hull in East Yorkshire, which takes its name from the river Hull (perhaps related to Danish hul ‘hole, hollow’, or perhaps a British name based on the root seul- ‘mud’).
