    1830 · The Second Great Awakening

    Age 1

    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.

    1830 · The Oregon Trail

    Age 1

    Many people started their 2,170-mile West trek to settle the land found by Louis and Clark. They used large-wheeled wagons to pack most of their belongings and were guided by trails that were made by the previous trappers and traders who walked the area. Over time the trail needed annual improvements to make the trip faster and safer. Most of Interstate 80 and 84 cover most of the ground that was the original trail.


    Age 34

    Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.

    Name Meaning

    English (Huntingdonshire): habitational name from one or more of the numerous places called Northorpe, such as Northorpe in Mirfield (Yorkshire), Northorpe in Halton Holegate, Northorpe near Scotton, and Northorpe in Thurlby near Bourne (all in Lincolnshire), Northorpe in Hornsea and a lost Northorpe in Easington near Patrington (both in the East Yorkshire). The placenames derive from Old English or Old Norse north ‘north, northern’ + Old English or Old Norse thorp ‘secondary settlement, dependent farmstead’. This surname is now rare in Britain, Northrop being the more common form.
