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.

Name Meaning

Italian: in Calabria this word denotes a horse born and raised in a stall, elsewhere a gelding; in Sicily it can be derived from mannara ‘axe’; it can also mean a sheepfold and may even be derived from lupo mannarino ‘werewolf’. These meanings mostly suggest nicknames, though in the case of the sheepfold, an indirect occupational name for a shepherd is more likely.
