Historical Boundaries 1784: Franklin, Georgia, United States

1786 · Shays' Rebellion

Caused by war veteran Daniel Shays, Shays' Rebellion was to protest economic and civil rights injustices that he and other farmers were seeing after the Revolutionary War. Because of the Rebellion it opened the eyes of the governing officials that the Articles of Confederation needed a reform. The Rebellion served as a guardrail when helping reform the United States Constitution.

1800 · Movement to Washington D.C.

While the growth of the new nation was exponential, the United States didn’t have permanent location to house the Government. The First capital was temporary in New York City but by the second term of George Washington the Capital moved to Philadelphia for the following 10 years. Ultimately during the Presidency of John Adams, the Capital found a permanent home in the District of Columbia.

Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English and Old French personal name Pai(e)n, Pagen (from Latin Paganus), a fairly common personal name among Normans. It derived from a word that originally meant ‘villager, rustic’, later ‘heathen’, but it had doubtless lost these connotations in its use as a late medieval personal name. This name has also been established in Ireland since the 14th century.

History: Thomas Payne, who was a freeman of Plymouth Colony in 1639, was the founder of a large American family, which included Robert Treat Paine (1731–1814), one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. See also Paine .
