World Events (8)

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.
1807 · Louisiana is Divided into 19 Parishes

Age 10

Louisiana was divided into 19 parishes (rather than counties or boroughs) on March 31, 1807. Currently, there are 64 parishes in Louisiana.
1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land

Age 24

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.

Name Meaning

Variant spelling, frequent in LA, of French Cheramy, a nickname from cher ‘dear’ + ami ‘friend’, not perhaps for someone who was a ‘dear friend’ so much as for someone who used the expression a great deal.
