Courage square was originally known by a different name. However, when Ezra Squall tried to rise to power, there was a great battle in the square, where the Wundersmith killed hundreds of innocent people. These Men and Women fought against him and sacrificed their lives in order to banish him from Nevermoor. The square was thereafter renamed Courage Square as a memorial to those who lost their lives.
The Chase trial
