1804 · The Twelfth Amendment

Age 0

With not having a very clear statement in the Constitution about Presidents and Vice Presidents, the Twelfth Amendment was Born. Before the Electoral College could cast two votes for those that they saw fit for President. This was changed to just one electoral vote for President and one electoral vote for Vice President. With the amount of people even allowed to vote, there was no way for there to be a tie during the elections.
1822 · Slave Rebellion

Age 18

"On June 16, 1822, Denmark Vesey a free and self-educated African American leads a slave rebellion called ""the rising."" The interesting thing about this rebellion is that it does not really happen. The only thing the judges have to go on is the testimony of people that witness it."

Name Meaning

1 English: habitational name from Dewberry Hill in Radcliffe on Trent, Nottinghamshire, which is of uncertain origin.2 Probably an Americanized spelling of French Dubarry, a topographic name from Anglo-Norman French barri ‘rampart’; later it denoted a suburb outside the walls of a medieval city ( see Barry ).
