    1827 · Slavery Becomes Illegal in New York State
    Age 1
    During the years 1799 to 1827, New York went through a period of gradual emancipation. A Gradual Emancipation Law was passed in 1799 which freed slave children born after July 4, 1799. However, they were indentured until 25 years old for women and 28 years old for men. A law passed 1817 which freed slaves born before 1799, yet delayed their emancipation for ten years. All remaining slaves were freed in New York State on July 4, 1827.
    1830 · The Second Great Awakening
    Age 4
    Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. 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.
    1841 · The Nauvoo Legion
    Age 15
    In 1841, the Nauvoo Legion was organized. It was a group of men formed to protect the people of Nauvoo but also fought in different wars. Joseph Smith was the Lieutenant General of this group. Other leaders included Brigham Young, John C. Bennett, and others. They were part of the Illinois Mormon War (1844-1846), Mexican-American War (March of California, Capture of Tucson), Indian Wars (Battle Creek Massacre, Battle of Fort Utah, Walker War, Ute Black Hawk War, Mountain Meadows Massacre), American Civil War, and Morrisite War. The Legion was disbanded in 1887.

    Name Meaning

    English (Lancashire): although the first element of this name would suggest it is derived from the Middle English personal name Babb (see Babb ), apparently it is a post-medieval form of Badcock, from the Middle English personal name Badecok, a pet form of Bade (see Bade ) + the diminutive suffix -cok. There is no reason why a Middle English Babbecok, a pet form of Babb (itself a pet form of Barbara ), should not have existed, but evidence has yet to be found.History: James Babcock settled in Portsmouth, RI, in 1642.
