1836 · Remember the Alamo

Age 3

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 · Arc de Triomphe

Age 3

The Arc de Triomphe was made specifically right before Napoleon I victory in Austerlitz in 1806 and took 30 years to build. Sadly Napoleon I would not live to see the creation finished. It’s name means triumphal arch. Assassination attempts were made on both Charles De Gaulle and Jacques Chirac from this location. Even though its name means triumph it has seen many times where Germans triumphally marched under it after winning battles.
1852 · The Second Empire

Age 19

During the second empire Emperor Napoleon III reigned. The country experienced economic growth and gained favorable foreign policies.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish: status name or occupational name from Middle English, Old French maresc(h)al ‘marshal’. The term is of Germanic origin (compare Old High German marah ‘horse’, ‘mare’ + scalc ‘servant’). Originally it denoted a man who looked after horses, but by the heyday of medieval surname formation it denoted on the one hand one of the most important servants in a great household (in the royal household a high official of state, one with military responsibilities), and on the other a humble shoeing smith or farrier. It was also an occupational name for a medieval court officer responsible for the custody of prisoners. An even wider range of meanings is found in some other languages: compare for example Polish Marszałek ( see Marszalek ). The surname is also borne by Jews, presumably as an Americanized form of one or more likesounding Jewish surnames.
