    World Events (8)

    1832 · The Black Hawk War
    Age 2
    Convinced that a group of Native American tribes were hostile, The United States formed a frontier militia to stop them in their tracks. Even though Black Hawk was hoping to avoid bloodshed while trying to resettle on tribal land, U.S. officials opened fire on the Native Americans. Black Hawk then responded to this confrontation by successfully attacking the militia at the Battle of Stillman's Run and then left northward. After a few months the militia caught up with Black Hawk and his men and defeated them at the Battle of Wisconsin Heights. While being weakened by hunger, injuries and desertion, Black Hawk and the rest of the many native survivors retreated towards the Mississippi. Unfortunately, Black Hawk and other leaders were later captured when they surrendered to the US forces and were then imprisoned for a year.
    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 6
    Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building. The battle has often been overshadowed by events from the Mexican–American War, But the Alamo gradually became known as a national battle site and later named an official Texas State Shrine.
    1847 · Casino Theatre (Copenhagen)
    Age 17
    The Casino Theatre was built as an entertainment center by Georg Carstensen but was converted into a theatre in 1848. After many years of never gaining popularity, it was closed in 1937 and demolished in 1960.

    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: French Gratien, Philomene, Solange.German, Romanian, French, and West Indian (mainly Haiti): from the Late Latin personal name Darius, Greek Dareios, which was borne by various kings of ancient Persia, including Darius I (522–486 BC ). The ancient Persian form of the name was Darayavahush, meaning ‘possessor’, from daraya(miy) ‘possess, maintain’ + vahu ‘good, well’. This became accepted as a Christian name in medieval Europe in honor of a saint martyred at Nicaea at an uncertain date.
