1794 · Creating the Eleventh Amendment

Age 2

The Eleventh Amendment restricts the ability of any people to start a lawsuit against the states in federal court.
1804

Age 12

Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr had been political enemies with intense personal differences for quite some time. Burr accused Hamilton of publicly disparaging his character during the elections of 1800 and 1804. On the morning of July 11, the two politicians went to Weehawken, New Jersey to resolve the disputes with an official duel. Both men were armed with a pistol. Hamilton missed, but Burr's shot fatally wounded Hamilton, who would die by the following day. The duel custom had been outlawed in New York by 1804, resulting in Burr fleeing the state due to an arrest warrant. He would later be accused of treason, but ultimately be acquitted.
1812

Age 20

War of 1812. U.S. declares war on Britain over British interference with American maritime shipping and westward expansion.

Name Meaning

English:1. habitational name from any of the various places bearing this name, for example in Essex (Haltesteda in Domesday Book), Kent, and Leicestershire, all of which are probably named from Old English h(e)ald ‘refuge’, ‘shelter’ + stede ‘site’, or possibly Hawstead in Suffolk, which has the same origin. However, the name is now most frequent in Lancashire and Yorkshire, where it is from High Halstead in Burnley, named as the ‘site of a hall’, from Old English h(e)all ‘hall’ + stede ‘place’. 2. occupational name for someone employed at ‘the hall buildings’, Middle English hallested, an ostler or cowhand, for instance.
