    1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land

    Age 1

    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.


    Age 9

    American settlers began mining the Wisconsin Territory in the early 1800's. The lead ore in the territory had largely been mined previously by American Indians. By 1829, nearly 4,000 miners had moved to Wisconsin Territory. The miners became known as badgers as they burrowed into hillsides for shelter. The name eventually represented the state and Wisconsin is now known as the Badger State. (Wisconsin Historical Society: Lead Mining in Southwestern Wisconsin)

    1839 · The Rebecca Riots Take Place

    Age 19

    The Rebecca Riots were a group of protests in west Wales from 1839-1843. The people involved were mostly poor farmers, primarily men dressed as women. The group was called “Rebecca and her daughters”, a title believed to have come the book of Genesis. They mostly fought against the toll-gates. There is only record of one death during the riots: a young Sarah Williams had been warned that the rioters were coming, but upon refusing to leave, was killed.
