World Events (8)

1850 · Compromise of 1850

Age 1

The United States Congress passed a package of five separate bills in an attempt to decrease tensions between the slave states and free states. The compromise itself was received gratefully, but both sides disapproved of certain components contained in the laws. Texas was impacted in several ways; mainly, the state surrendered its claim to New Mexico (and other claims north of 36°30′) but retained the Texas Panhandle. The federal government also took over the public debt for Texas.

Age 14

Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
1881 · Construction of the Fort Worth & Denver Railway

Age 32

Grenville M. Dodge oversaw the construction of the Fort Worth & Denver Railway. Work began at Hodge Junction, and eventually extended to the New Mexico border by 1888. Service began on April 1, 1888, with trains travelling between Fort Worth and Denver.

Name Meaning

English (Northumbria): occupational name for a breeder or keeper of horses, from Old English stōd ‘stud’ or stott ‘inferior kind of horse’ + hierde ‘herdsman’, ‘keeper’. There is a difficulty in deriving this name from Old English stōd in that stud is not recorded in the sense ‘collection of horses bred by one person’ until the 17th century; before that it denoted a place where horses were kept for breeding, but that sense does not combine naturally with ‘herdsman’.
