1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.

1836 · Remember the Alamo

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

English, Scottish, and Irish: of Norman origin, from Old French and Anglo-Norman French r(o)ussel, a diminutive of Old French rous(e) ‘red, reddish’, used either as a nickname for someone with red hair or a ruddy complexion, or as a personal name. Compare Rouse . This Norman name has been established in Ireland since the 12th century. It has been reinforced in Britain and Ireland by Huguenot bearers of the name Roussel, of the same Old French origin.

English: habitational name from any of several places called Rushall (Norfolk, Staffordshire, Wiltshire) or possibly sometimes from Rusthall in Speldhurst (Kent). Rushall in Staffordshire derives from Old English rysc ‘rush, rushes’ + halh ‘nook, corner of land’. Rushall in Norfolk derives from an uncertain first element + Old English halh. Rushall in Wiltshire derives from an Old English personal name Rust (genitive Rustes) + halh. Rusthall in Speldhurst (Kent) probably derives from Old English rust ‘rust, rust color’ + wella ‘well, spring, stream’, but with a change in the final element due to influence from Middle English, Old English hall ‘hall, residence’, perhaps referring to a nearby building.

Americanized form of German Rüssel, from a pet form of any of various personal names formed with the element hrōd ‘fame, renown’.
