World Events (8)

1836 · Remember the Alamo

Age 1

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.
1846

Age 11

Iowa is the 29th state.
1857 · The State Capital moves to Des Moines

Age 22

The Capitol was located in Iowa City until the 1st General Assembly of Iowa recognized that the Capitol should be moved farther west than Iowa City. Land was found two miles from the Des Moines River to start construction of the new building. Today the Capitol building still stands on its original plot.

Name Meaning

English: probably an occupational name for someone who worked at a ‘church house’ (Middle English chirche + h(o)us), a building, usually adjoining the church, which served as a parish room.
