    Age 4

Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.

    1832 · Black Hawk War

    Age 6

    "The Black Hawk War was a brief conflict between the United States and Native Americans led by Black Hawk, a Sauk leader. The war erupted soon after Black Hawk and a group of other tribes, known as the ""British Band"", crossed the Mississippi River, into Illinois, from Iowa Indian Territory in April 1832. Black Hawk's motives were ambiguous, but records show that he was hoping to avoid bloodshed while resettling on tribal land that had been given to the United States in the 1804 Treaty of St. Louis."

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

    Name Meaning

    Welsh: from the personal name Dewi, Welsh form of David . In some cases the name may arise from the dedication of parish churches in places called Llanddewi (Saint David's), of which there are several.

    Anglicized form of a French Huguenot name of uncertain form and origin. Traditionally it is recorded as Douai, a habitational name from a city so named in northern France, but it could also be from Old Norman French du we(z) ‘of the ford’, from a variant of standard French gué ‘ford’.

    In some cases possibly also an Americanized form of Dutch De Weij (archaic De Wey): cognate of Van der Weij (see Wey ).
