1872 · The First National Park
Age 2
Yellowstone National Park was given the title of the first national park by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant. It is also believed to be the first national park in the world.
1884 · There is now a Capital Building
Age 14
The capitol building in Des Moines originally had a budget of $1,500,000 but complications arose because of the need of a redesign. The building was dedicated on January 17, 1884, but it wasn’t completed until 1886. On January 4, 1904, a fire started and swept through the areas that housed the Supreme Court and Iowa House of Representatives. A major restoration was performed and documented, with the addition of electrical lighting, elevators, and a telephone system. By the early 1980s, the sandstone exterior of the Capitol had started deteriorating and prompted the installation of canopies to protect pedestrians from falling rubble. The entire reconstruction process took around 18 years to complete.
1898 · War with the Spanish
Age 28
After the explosion of the USS Maine in the Havana Harbor in Cuba, the United States engaged the Spanish in war. The war was fought on two fronts, one in Cuba, which helped gain their independence, and in the Philippines, which helped the US gain another territory for a time.

Name Meaning

English:of Norman origin, from Old French and Middle English roche ‘rock, cliff, promontory’, sometimes a translation of Stone . The surname may have been topographic, denoting someone who lived on or by a prominent rock or rocky place, or a habitational name for someone who lived or came from a place so named, such as one of those called Roque or Roche(s) in Normandy and neighboring regions, or Roche in Cornwall, Roach Farm in Clyst Hydon (Devon), or Roch in Pembrokeshire (see Roch ).in Lancashire perhaps referring to the River Roch, which runs through Rochdale; the river name is probably a back-formation from Recedham, an early name for Rochdale recorded in 1086, derived from Old English reced ‘building, house, hall’ + hām ‘village, homestead’. Alternatively, the Lancashire name could be a shortened form of the now rare or extinct surname Rochdale alias Rachedale, Rachdall, a habitational name from Rochdale (Lancashire). From the 18th century onward the name is difficult to distinguish from Roch , borne by Irish migrants to South Lancashire, especially Liverpool.
