1829 · Missouri State Library
Age 3
The first Missouri State Library was established by law on January 22, 1829. This law was created due to the large amount of public documents which had been collected in the office of Missouri's secretary of state. The library included documentation of the actions of the Missouri senate and house. The documents were cataloged and made available to the public. The public had access to any of the books in the library from sunup to sundown on any day except Sunday.
1832 · Black Hawk War
Age 6
"The Black Hawk War was a brief conflict between the United States and Native Americans led by Black Hawk, a Sauk leader. The war erupted soon after Black Hawk and a group of other tribes, known as the ""British Band"", crossed the Mississippi River, into Illinois, from Iowa Indian Territory in April 1832. Black Hawk's motives were ambiguous, but records show that he was hoping to avoid bloodshed while resettling on tribal land that had been given to the United States in the 1804 Treaty of St. Louis."

Name Meaning

English and German: from Randolf, an ancient Germanic personal name composed of the elements rand ‘rim (of a shield), shield’ + wolf ‘wolf’. This was introduced into England by the Normans in Old French forms of two different ancient Germanic personal names which became confused with each other: Randulf (from rand ‘(shield-)edge’ + wulf ‘wolf’) and Rannulf (from hraf(a)n ‘raven’ + wulf ‘wolf’).History: An American family bearing this surname are descended from William Randolph (c. 1651–1711), a planter and merchant, a member of a family that originally came from Sussex, England. William Randolph emigrated from Warwickshire to VA c. 1673. He was a forebear of Thomas Jefferson and Robert E. Lee. Randolph had seven sons, each of whom inherited an estate, the name of which was sometimes added to their own, such as Sir John Randolph of Tazewell. His great-grandsons included Edmund Randolph (1753–1813), first attorney general of the US and one of the framers of the US Constitution, and the diplomat and statesman John Randolph of Roanoke (1773–1833), who served as US minister to Russia.
