    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 2
    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.
    1848 · The March Unrest
    Age 14
    The March Unrest, or the Marsoroligheterna, was a series of riots in Stockholm in March 1848, due to news of the French Revolution. As a mob gathered and plundered shops on March 19, the militia fired shots and 18 deaths. The army arrived on March 21 for reinforcement and terminated any further rioting.

    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: French Pierre, Antoine, Andre, Francois, Patrice, Germaine, Magalie, Philippe, Yves, Alain, Jacques, Cecile.French, Welsh, English, West Indian (mainly Haiti), and African (mainly Tanzania): from the French form of the ancient Germanic personal name Karl ‘man, husband, freeman’, which was Latinized as Carolus. In France the personal name was popular from an early date, due to the fame of the Emperor Charlemagne (c. 742–814; Latin name Carolus Magnus, i.e. Charles the Great). The Old French form Charles was briefly introduced to England by the Normans, but was rare during the main period of surname formation. It was introduced more successfully to Scotland in the 16th century by the Stuarts, who had strong ties with France, and was brought by them to England in the 17th century. Its frequency as a Welsh surname is attributable to the late date of Welsh surname formation. Old English Ceorl ‘peasant’ is also found as a byname, but the resulting Middle English form, Charl, with a patronymic in -s, if it existed at all, would have been absorbed by the French form introduced by the Normans. English variants pronounced with initial k- for the most part reflect the cognate Old Norse personal name Karl, Karli. Compare Carl .English: in some cases, possibly a habitational name from Charles (Devon), or a post-medieval variant of Cherrill, with excrescent -s, perhaps by false association with the personal name Charles. Cherrill is either a habitational name from Cherhill in Wilshire, or a status name from Middle English cherl, cheril, charl, chirl ‘churl, bonded tenant, serf; peasant’.
