1836 · Remember the Alamo

Age 0

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

French (Lefèvre): occupational name for an ironworker or smith, Old French fevre. One of the most common names in France from an early date, this was taken to Britain and Ireland by the Normans, by the French to Canada, and by the Huguenots (with the variant form Lefebre) to colonial America and elsewhere.In Canada, there were so many bearers of this name that many nicknames and epithets (secondary surnames or ‘dit’ names) were employed to distinguish between one family and another. Thus, for example, the Lefevre called Descoteaux became Hill by translation, and the Lefevre called Boulanger became Baker . Since fevre ‘smith’ had ceded as a general vocabulary word to forgeron in French, the meaning of the name was no longer understood; in some cases it was reconstructed as Lafeve (Latin faba) and translated as Bean .
