    1836 - In San Antonio, TX, the siege of the Alamo began.

    1861 - Voters ratified an ordinance that would withdraw Texas from the Union. The ordinance had been approved by the Secession Convention on February 1. The secession became official on March 2. Texas was the 7th state to leave the Union. Also in 1861, U.S. President-elect Lincoln arrived secretly in Washington to take his office after an assassination attempt in Baltimore.

    1917 - German troops began their withdrawal back to strong positions on the Hindenburg Line. The withdrawal was completed on May 5.

    1945 - Joe Rosenthal took took a picture of six United States World War II servicemen raising an American flag on Mount Suribachin over Iwo Jima. The photo later became the model for the Iwo Jima Memorial (officially known as the Marine Corps War Memorial) near Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. The memorial, dedicated in 1954, commemorates the U.S. Marines that died taking the Pacific island in World War II.
