World Events (8)

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.

1838 · Florida Constitutional Convention of 1838

In order to transition from a territory into a state, Florida held a Constitutional Convention on December 3, 1838 at St. Joseph. The original constitutional document has never been found, but a handwritten copy exists which shows the signatures of Robert Raymond Reid (Convention President) and Joshua Knowles (Convention Secretary). There were an estimated 55 delegates in attendance. Most of the debate was centered on the topic of banking.


In 1860, South Carolina quit the United States because its citizens were in favor of slavery and President Lincoln was not. The Civil War started a year later.

Name Meaning

English: either a nickname for someone who was fond of dressing in this color (Old English grēne) or was young or immature, or who had played the part of the ‘Green Man’ in the May Day celebrations, or a topographic name for someone who lived near a village green (Middle English grene, a transferred use of the color term). This is one of the most common and widespread of English surnames. In North America it has assimilated cognates from other languages, notably German Grün (see Gruen ) and Dutch Groen ; compare 7 below. This surname is also very common among African Americans.

English: alternatively, from a Middle English personal name Grene.

Irish: adopted for Ó hUainín ‘descendant of Uainín’, a personal name from a pet form of uaine ‘green’, see Honan .
