    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 4
    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: habitational name from Croichlow in Bury (Lancashire), recorded in the surname de Cruchelowe in 1324 and Croichelay in 1563. The name is perhaps also derived from Crouchley Farm in Lymm (Cheshire), though this name is of uncertain age; or from an unidentified place in southern England whose name has a similar origin (from the British Celtic crouco- ‘hill, barrow’ in an English guise + Old English hlāw, hlǣw ‘hill, barrow’). The original -low has sometimes been replaced with -ley (compare Critchley ).
