Age 4

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.

U.S. acquires vast tracts of Mexican territory in wake of Mexican War including California and New Mexico.

Age 31

Name Meaning

Said to be a French Huguenot name. Family genealogists assert that it is recorded in western France, at La Rochelle and Bordeaux, in the departments of Gironde and Charente, in the spellings Amidon and Amadon. If this is the source, the etymology is not known.
