1836 · Remember the Alamo
Age 0
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.

Age 10
Tennessee was known as the Volunteer State because during the Mexican War the government asked Tennessee for 3,000 volunteer soldiers and 30,000 joined.
1867 · Sorry Mr. President, You can't do that.
Age 31
This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The Amendment was later repealed.

Name Meaning

(1997: 158845;2007: 349315; 2010: 482607)English and Scottish: from the Middle English, Old French personal name Alain, Alein (Old Breton Alan), from a Celtic personal name of great antiquity and obscurity. In England the personal name is now usually spelled Alan, the surname Allen; in Scotland the surname is more often Allan. From 1139 it was common in Scotland, where the surname also derives from Gaelic Ailéne, Ailín, from ail ‘rock’. The present-day frequency of the surname Allen in England and Ireland is partly accounted for by the popularity of the personal name among Breton followers of William the Conqueror, by whom it was imported first to Britain and then to Ireland. Saint Alan(us) was a 5th-century bishop of Quimper, who was a cult figure in medieval Brittany. Another Saint Al(l)an was a Cornish or Breton saint of the 6th century, to whom a church in Cornwall is dedicated.English: occasionally perhaps from the rare Middle English femaje personal name Aline (Old French Adaline, Aaline), a pet form of ancient Germanic names in Adal-, especially Adalheidis (see Allis ).
