    1827 · Slavery Becomes Illegal in New York State

    Age 17

    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.

    1832 · The Black Hawk War

    Age 22

    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.

    Name Meaning

    Irish (especially Ulster): Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Cú Uladh, a patronymic from the personal name Cú Uladh ‘hound of Ulster’. Compare McNally , which is from Mac Con Uladh, genitive form of the same name, and McColl , with which the name seems to have sometimes been confused. The name McCullough has sometimes been associated with Gaelic cullach ‘wild boar’, and some families in County Sligo translated it into English as Boar. However, Mac Cú Uladh is the more likely explanation.
