    1836 · Remember the Alamo
    Age 1
    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

    German: topographic name for someone who lived by a tree that was particularly noticeable in some way, from Middle High German, Old High German boum ‘tree’, or else a nickname for a particularly tall person.Jewish (Ashkenazic): artificial name from German Baum ‘tree’, or a short form of any of the many artificial surnames containing this word as the final element, for example Feigenbaum ‘fig tree’ (see Feige ) and Mandelbaum ‘almond tree’ (see Mandel ).English (Leicestershire): variant of Balme, a habitational name from Balne in Yorkshire, so named with Middle English balne ‘bath, bathing place’ (from Latin balneum ‘bathing place’). There is no early evidence suggesting possible derivation from Middle English balme, baume ‘balm, balsam’, though this word has probably influenced the name.
