    Age 1

    Because of the outbreak of war from Napoleonic France, Britain decided to blockade the trade between the United States and the French. The US then fought this action and said it was illegal under international law. Britain supplied Native Americans who raided settlers living on the frontier and halting expansion westward. In 1814, one of the British raids stormed into Washington D.C. burning down the capital. Neither the Americans or the British wanted to continue fighting, so negotiations of peace began. After Treaty of Ghent was signed, Unaware of the treaty, British forces invaded Louisiana but were defeated in January 1815.

    Age 25

    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 (Shropshire and Lancashire): variant of the Devon surname Woolland, perhaps a habitational name from Woolland in Dorset, named from Old English wynne ‘pasture, meadow’ + land ‘land’. Alternatively, but less likely, a topographic name from Middle English wough ‘bent, crooked’ + land(e), lond(e) ‘land’ (Old English wōh + land), perhaps denoting a person who lived at or near a bend in a stream or river, or for someone from any place so named, such as Wollensbrook in Great Amwell (Hertfordshire). This surname is rare in Britain.
