World Events (8)

1850 · Compromise of 1850

Age 4

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 15

Mississippi became the second state to leave the Union at the start of the Civil War in 1861.
1870 · Texas Is Restored to the Union

Age 24

Congress restored Texas to the Union on March 30, 1870, despite not yet meeting all of the requirements established for re-admittance.

Name Meaning

English and Welsh: patronymic from the Middle English personal name Jon(e) ( see John ). The surname is especially common in Wales and southern central England. In North America this name has absorbed various cognate and like-sounding surnames from other languages. (For forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 ).
