    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 1
    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.
    1838 · The Aroostook War
    Age 3
    "An international incident referred to as the Aroostook War or ""Pork and Beans War"". The conflict resulted as part of an international boundary dispute between the United States. Although several British soldiers were captured, nobody was killed during the war. In fact, local militia units did not engage in any significant combat. One of the most dramatic events was actually when two Canadian militia were injured by Black Bears."
    Age 28
    Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
