    1830 · The Second Great Awakening

    Age 4

    Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. 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.

    1850 · Compromise of 1850

    Age 24

    The United States Congress passed a package of five separate bills in an attempt to decrease tensions between the slave states and free states. The compromise itself was received gratefully, but both sides disapproved of certain components contained in the laws. Texas was impacted in several ways; mainly, the state surrendered its claim to New Mexico (and other claims north of 36°30′) but retained the Texas Panhandle. The federal government also took over the public debt for Texas.

    Native American: translation into English (and shortening) of a personal name based on a word, such as Lakota or Dakota Sioux kaŋgi, meaning ‘crow’. The cultural significance of the crow to Native Americans is reflected in their traditional personal names, some of which were adopted as surnames (translated into English), e.g. Big Crow (see Bigcrow ) and Two Crow (see Twocrow ).
