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.

In 1829 Fort Sumter is constructed in the Charleston Harbor, South Carolina. Fort Sumter is most known for being the site of the first shots of the Civil War. It is barely ready when the American Civil War starts.
