World Events (8)

1850 · Compromise of 1850

Age 2

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.
1862 · Battle of Shiloh

Age 14

The battle of Shiloh took place on April 6, 1862 and April 7, 1862. Confederate soldiers camp through the woods next to where the Union soldiers were camped at Pittsburg Landing on the Tennessee River. With 23,000 casualties this was the bloodiest battle of the Civil War up to this point.
1870 · Texas Is Restored to the Union

Age 22

Congress restored Texas to the Union on March 30, 1870, despite not yet meeting all of the requirements established for re-admittance.
