1836 · Remember the Alamo

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.

History: Sarah Bunting (1686–1762), born in Matlock, Derbyshire, became a noted Quaker minister in Cross Wicks, NJ. It is believed but not certain that other members of her family, including her father, John Bunting, came with her to NJ sometime before 1704, when her marriage to William Murfin is recorded.
