    1836 · Remember the Alamo

    Age 1

    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.

    1848 · State Capital Moves to Lansing

    Age 13

    Detroit fought to maintain the Capitol within its jurisdiction, but communities in the growing western part of the state had reasons for wanting a move inland. This move would make the Capitol more easily defensible in case of another war between the British and the U.S. like that of the War of 1812. Proponents of moving the capitol also sought to make the government more accessible to the people throughout the state. Construction began in 1847 on a temporary state capitol building in Lansing. It was a simple two-story wood frame structure, painted white with green wooden shutters and topped by a tin cupola. The building was sold when the permanent capitol building opened in 1879 and, like the first capitol, it was later destroyed by a fire in 1882.

    1854 · Creation of the Republican Party

    Age 19

    A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.
