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.

1838 · The Aroostook War

An international incident referred to as the Aroostook War or "Pork and Beans War". The conflict resulted as part of an international boundary dispute between the United States. Although several British soldiers were captured, nobody was killed during the war. In fact, local militia units did not engage in any significant combat. One of the most dramatic events was actually when two Canadian militia were injured by Black Bears.

1842 · Webster–Ashburton Treaty

The Webster-Ashburton Treaty was signed on August 9, 1842 and resolved the border issues between the United States and British North American colonies which had caused the Aroostook War. The treaty contained several agreements and concessions. It called for an end on the overseas slave trade and proposed that both parties share the Great Lakes. It also reaffirmed the location of the westward frontier border (near the Rocky Mountains) as well as the border between Lake Superior and Lake of the Woods. The treaty was signed by Daniel Webster (United States Secretary of State) and Alexander Baring (British Diplomat, 1st Baron Ashburton).
