    1787 · New Jersey Plan

    Age 3

    "Also referred to as the Small State Plan, the New Jersey Plan was an important piece of legislation that William Paterson presented during the Constitutional Convention. The plan was created because states with smaller populations were concerned about their representation in the United States government. The New Jersey plan proposed, among other things, that each state would have one equal vote. This was in contrast to the Virginia Plan, which suggested that appointment for Congress should be proportional to state population. The Connecticut Compromise merged the two plans, allowing for two ""houses"" of congress: one with proportional representation, and the other with equal power from each state (as the New Jersey Plan had suggested)."


    Age 19

    Ohio was the first state admitted to the Union from the Northwest Territory.

    1810 · Change of capital city

    Age 26

    Name Meaning

    English, Dutch, and German (mainly northwestern Germany): patronymic from the personal name Adam . In North America, this surname has absorbed cognates from other languages, e.g. Greek Adamopoulos , Serbian and Croatian Adamović (see Adamovich ), Polish (and Jewish) Adamski .

    Irish and Scottish: adopted for McAdam or a Scottish variant of Adam , with excrescent -s.

    History: This surname was borne by two early presidents of the US, father and son. They were descended from Henry Adams, who settled in Braintree, MA, in 1635/6, from Barton St. David, Somerset, England. The younger of them, John Quincy Adams (1767–1848) derived his middle name from his maternal grandmother's surname (see Quincy ). — Another important New England family, established mainly in NH, is descended from William Adams, who emigrated from Shropshire, England, to Dedham, MA, in 1628. James Hopkins Adams (1812–61), governor of SC, was unconnected with either of these families, his ancestry being Welsh; his forebears entered North America through PA.
