Bell County, Tx.
named for Peter Hansborough Bell
Bell County was created from Milam County in 1850, just five years after Texas entered the Union. County Commissioners chose a county seat on the banks of Nolan Creek and named it Nolandsville. Two years later, January 12, 1852, the town’s name became Belton and it was incorporated. Bell is named for Peter Hansborough Bell, the third governor of Texas.

UNESCO first declared 8 September as International Literacy Day in 1966, following a recommendation made by the World Congress of Ministers of Education on “the Eradication of Illiteracy”, held in Teheran in September 1965.
Each year INTERNATIONAL LITERACY DAY is celebrated with the aim to sensitize and mobilize international public opinion and to elicit their interest and active support for literacy activities. On this day, the Director-General of UNESCO addresses a message to the world, appealing to individuals, organizations and states to demonstrate their support and solidarity for literacy and to promote non-formal education for all, particularly for those who have been excluded from the school system.
The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples. In 2013, for the first time, the Day was dedicated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to peace education, the key preventive means to reduce war sustainably.
