    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.

    Name Meaning

    English (North Yorkshire) and German: from Horn 1 with the agent suffix -er; used either as an occupational name for someone who made or sold small articles made of horn (Middle English hornere), a metonymic occupational name for someone who played a musical instrument made from the horn of an animal, or a topographic name for someone who lived at a ‘horn’ of land. In the Middle Ages whole horns were used for many purposes: as drinking vessels, as containers, as wind instruments for sounding an alarm and for signalling to others (e.g. when hunting). Pieces of horn were used to make spoons, buttons, combs, handles, decorative tips for rods, and other things. The horner's craft could include making musical horns as well as sheets of translucent horn for windows and for covering books. For example, Thomas Hornar of Petergate in York was paid for ‘hornyng et naillyng’ the superscribed covers of books in York Minster library in 1421.German (also Hörner): from any of various places called Horn, referring to their location at a spur of land, at a horn shaped piece of land.Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Horn 5.
