    1832 · The Black Hawk War
    Age 1
    Convinced that a group of Native American tribes were hostile, The United States formed a frontier militia to stop them in their tracks. Even though Black Hawk was hoping to avoid bloodshed while trying to resettle on tribal land, U.S. officials opened fire on the Native Americans. Black Hawk then responded to this confrontation by successfully attacking the militia at the Battle of Stillman's Run and then left northward. After a few months the militia caught up with Black Hawk and his men and defeated them at the Battle of Wisconsin Heights. While being weakened by hunger, injuries and desertion, Black Hawk and the rest of the many native survivors retreated towards the Mississippi. Unfortunately, Black Hawk and other leaders were later captured when they surrendered to the US forces and were then imprisoned for a year.
    1848 · The California Gold Rush
    Age 17
    On January 24, 1848, gold was found at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, California, which began the California gold rush. In December of that same year, U.S. President James Polk announced the news to Congress. The news of gold lured thousands of “forty-niners” seeking fortune to California during 1849. Approximately 300,000 people relocated to California from all over the world during the gold rush years. It is estimated that the mined gold was worth tens of billions in today’s U.S. dollars. 
    1850 · California Is Admitted to Union
    Age 19
    California was admitted into the Union on September 9, 1850, and became the 31st state.

    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English personal name Bertilmew, Bertelmy, a borrowing of the Old French form of the Biblical personal name Bartholomew (from Latin Bartholomaeus; Hebrew ‘son of Talmai’, said to mean ‘having many furrows’, i.e. rich in land). This was an extremely popular personal name in Christian Europe, with many vernacular derivatives. It derived its popularity from the apostle Saint Bartholomew (Matthew 10:3), who was, among other things, the patron saint of tanners, vintners, and butlers.As an Irish name, it has been used as an Anglicized form of Mac Pharthaláin (see McFarlane ).
