    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

    English: status or occupational name from Middle English sergeaunt ‘servant’ (Old French sergent, serjant). The surname probably originated for the most part in this sense, but the word also developed a number of more specialized meanings in the medieval period, including ‘tenant by military service below the rank of knight’. It was also used for a variety of administrative and legal offices, which may have contributed to the development of the surname. The sense ‘non-commissioned officer’ did not arise until the 16th century. Compare Sergent .History: William Sargent (1624–1717) came to Gloucester, MA, from Devon, England before 1678. Many of his descendants distinguished themselves in the civil and military affairs of the colonies and some in literary or artistic paths, notably the portrait painter John Singer Sargent (1856–1925).
