1836 · Remember the Alamo

Age 2

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.
1836 · The Bridge War

Age 2

On Halloween, tension between Cleveland and Ohio City began to boil over. Both sides of the river armed themselves with muskets and a cannon over the Columbus Street Bridge. These tensions were brought about because the bridge's location was diverting commercial attention away from Ohio City completely and the way that their concerns were being treated. Cleveland's mayor tried to reason with the enraged citizens but was greeted with a volley of rocks. No deaths were recorded but three men were injured.
1860 · Perry Monument on Public Square

Age 26

The Perry Monument was erected at the center of Public Square to commemorate the victory of the Battle of Lake Erie by Oliver Hazard Perry. It was Ohio's first monumental sculpture. It has since been moved to Fort Huntington Park.
