    1836 · Remember the Alamo

    Age 21

    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 (Lancashire): although the first element of this name would suggest it is derived from the Middle English personal name Babb (see Babb ), apparently it is a post-medieval form of Badcock, from the Middle English personal name Badecok, a pet form of Bade (see Bade ) + the diminutive suffix -cok. There is no reason why a Middle English Babbecok, a pet form of Babb (itself a pet form of Barbara ), should not have existed, but evidence has yet to be found.

    History: James Babcock settled in Portsmouth, RI, in 1642.
