1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land

Age 19

A United States law to provide financial relief for the purchasers of Public Lands. It permitted the earlier buyers, that couldn't pay completely for the land, to return the land back to the government. This granted them a credit towards the debt they had on land. Congress, also, extended credit to buyer for eight more years. Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.

Name Meaning

English: occupational name for a hunter or a huntsman's servant. The second element is Middle English man ‘man’, ‘servant’, while the first is either from Old English hunta ‘hunter’ or Middle English hunte ‘a hunt’. In some cases it is probably from an unattested Old English personal name, Huntmann (a compound of hunta ‘hunter’ + mann ‘man’).
