    1836 · The Bridge War
    Age 2
    On Halloween, tension between Cleveland and Ohio City began to boil over. Both sides of the river armed themselves with muskets and a cannon over the Columbus Street Bridge. These tensions were brought about because the bridge's location was diverting commercial attention away from Ohio City completely and the way that their concerns were being treated. Cleveland's mayor tried to reason with the enraged citizens but was greeted with a volley of rocks. No deaths were recorded but three men were injured.
    Age 9
    Dickens A Christmas Carol was first published.
    1854 · Great North of Scotland Railway
    Age 20
    Being one of the two smallest railways in 1923, the Great North of Scotland Railway carried its first passengers from Kittybrewster to Huntly in 1854. In the 1880s the railways were refurbished to give express services to the suburban parts in Aberdeen. There were junctions with the Highland Railway established to help connect Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Moray counties. The railway started to deliver goods from the North Sean and from the whisky distilleries in Speyside. With the implementation of bus services and the purchase of the British Railway the Great North of Scotland Railway was discontinued.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish (mainly Aberdeenshire and Angus): occupational name from Middle English milne ‘mill’, also found as mulne in south and western England and melne in southeastern England. The Scottish name has been established in Ireland since the early 18th century, and has absorbed some cases of Irish Moyle . Compare Mill 1.
