Age 24

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: habitational name from a place so called, probably either the one in Oxfordshire, which is named from Old English hēan, the weak dative case of hēah ‘high’ (originally used after a preposition and article), + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’, or the one in Somerset, which is from Old English henn ‘hen’ (perhaps a byname) + tūn. The surname, however, is now most common in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, and could be a variant of Hinton .
