    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.

    Name Meaning

    English (mainly southern): from the Old French habitational name and personal name Paris . Parrish is the most common form of the name in English, and is the result of confusion between -s and -sh (compare Norris ), reinforced by folk etymological association with the modern English word parish.
