Age 4

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).

Name Meaning

English: occupational name for a worker in metal, from Middle English smith (Old English smið, probably a derivative of smītan ‘to strike, hammer’). Metalworking was one of the earliest occupations for which specialist skills were required, and its importance ensured that this term and its equivalents were perhaps the most widespread of all occupational surnames in Europe. Medieval smiths were important not only in making horseshoes, plowshares, and other domestic articles, but above all for their skill in forging swords, other weapons, and armor. This is the most frequent of all American surnames; it has also absorbed, by assimilation and translation, cognates and equivalents from many other languages (for forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 ).
