World Events (2)

1770 · Boston Tea Party

Age 1

Thousands of British troops were sent to Boston to enforce Britain's tax laws. Taxes were repealed on all imports to the American Colonies except tea. Americans, disguised as Native Americans, dumped chests of tea imported by the East India Company into the Boston Harbor in protest. This escalated tensions between the American Colonies and the British government.
1775 · The Shot Heard Around the World

Age 6

"On April 18, 1775, a shot known as the ""shot heard around the world"" was fired between American colonists and British troops in Lexington, Massachusetts. This began the American War for Independence. Fifteen months later, Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence. The Treaty of Paris was signed in September 1783 which ended the war. The colonies were no longer under British rule. Many who fought for the British fled to Canada, the West Indies, and some to England."

Name Meaning

The scriptural name has been rendered as a female ruler or governor and a princess or noble lady, from "saráh," meaning to be a leader or commander, or to fight. The name appears to have been originally Sarai, signifying "my princess." Nicknames are Sal and Sally. Sara is the Italian form.
