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.

English: from Middle English calle, cale (Old English cawl) ‘container, basket, net’, commonly used of a kind of hair net, close-fitting cap, or headdress worn by women to cover tied-up hair. The name could have been given as a metonymic occupational name to a maker of women's caps or perhaps of baskets or nets.

English: alternatively, perhaps a nickname from Middle English cale (also calle), a side form of calwe ‘bald’ (from Old English calu).
