Age 10

A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim that the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.

Name Meaning

English (southeastern): topographic name arising from a misdivision of Middle English atten (e)ye which means either ‘at the river’ or ‘at the island’, from Old English ēa ‘river’ and ēg ‘island’ respectively. Both these words were feminine in Old English, and so should have been preceded only by Middle English atter ( see Rye ), but distinctions of gender ceased to be carefully maintained in the Middle English period.
