World Events (8)

1833 · The Town of Chicago is Founded

Chicago became an incorporated town after the Potawatomi Native Americans and the United States Government signed the Treaty of Chicago. The name comes from the indigenous word shikaakwa meaning onion, or something similar, because of the wild garlic that grew abundantly in the area.

1835 · Second Seminole War

The Second Seminole War, often called the Florida War, was a conflict between Native Americans and the United States. Taking place from 1835 until 1842, it is regarded as the lengthiest, most expensive conflict that the United States had with the Native American people. There were roughly 1,600 US military casualties and over 3,000 deaths among the Seminole people. The war was followed by a brief period of peace, but the government's insistence on removing Native Americans from Florida would eventually result in further conflicts.

1851 · Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad

The Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad started running in February 1851, 15 years after it was charted for construction. It later absorbed a small bankrupt railroad in 1861 to help expand its services beyond just Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati. In May 1868, the railroad merged with the Bellefontaine Railway to connect the current cities with Indianapolis.

Name Meaning

Scottish, English, and northern Irish: of Norman origin, from Anglo-Norman French armurer, Old French armurier, hence an occupational name for a maker of arms and armor. The collective noun armure denoted offensive weapons as well as the more recently specialized sense of protective gear.
