1804 · The Twelfth Amendment

With not having a very clear statement in the Constitution about Presidents and Vice Presidents, the Twelfth Amendment was Born. Before the Electoral College could cast two votes for those that they saw fit for President. This was changed to just one electoral vote for President and one electoral vote for Vice President. With the amount of people even allowed to vote, there was no way for there to be a tie during the elections.

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.

Name Meaning

English: variant of Eastham , Easton , or Easun. The latter is itself also a variant of Neston, a habitational name from Neston in Corsham (Wiltshire), probably deriving from Old English næss ‘headland, promontory’ + tūn ‘farmstead, settlement’, or from Neston (Cheshire), from Old English næss or Old Norse nes ‘headland, promontory’, or perhaps Old English nesu ‘nose’, with the same sense, + Old English tūn. Alternatively, Neston may be a topographic name from Middle English an esten tun (Old English on ēastan tūne), denoting someone who lived ‘on the east of the village’.

Scottish: variant of Esson .
