    Age 3

    Serving the newly created United States of America as the first constitution, the Articles of Confederation were an agreement among the 13 original states preserving the independence and sovereignty of the states. But with a limited central government, the Constitutional Convention came together to replace the Articles of Confederation with a more established Constitution and central government on where the states can be represented and voice their concerns and comments to build up the nation.

    Age 5

    The Revolutionary War ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris which gave the new nation boundries on which they could expand and trade with other countries without any problems.

    1800 · Movement to Washington D.C.

    Age 22

    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 (of Norman origin): from the Middle English personal names Everard and Everet. These might occasionally be from the Old English form of the name, Eoforheard (from eofor ‘boar’ + heard ‘hardy, brave’), but many bearers of this name were undoubtedly Normans, who took it from the cognate ancient Germanic Eburhard, Everhard.
