1777 · Washington's Troops Spent the Winter at Valley Forge

Age 0

The winter that Washington’s troops spent at Valley Forge was horrible. Most the troops that had come in with General Washington were injured and dying already. There was little food for the soldiers. They were dying from starvation, disease, and the cold. Horses were dying and the men had to take their place in moving the supply wagons. Washington stayed with his men while all others were leaving and abandoning the struggling troops. This helped Washington gain the support, admiration, and loyalty of his troops.
1781 · The First Constitution

Age 4

Serving the newly created United States of America as the first constitution, the Articles of Confederation were an agreement among the 13 original states preserving the independence and sovereignty of the states. But with a limited central government, the Constitutional Convention came together to replace the Articles of Confederation with a more established Constitution and central government on where the states can be represented and voice their concerns and comments to build up the nation.

Age 31

Atlantic slave trade abolished.

Name Meaning

Probably in most cases an Americanized spelling of the German habitational name Bieler or of the topographic name Piehler , a variant of Biehler (of which this may also be an altered spelling) or of Bühler ( see Peel ).
