1794 · Creating the Eleventh Amendment

Age 0

The Eleventh Amendment restricts the ability of any people to start a lawsuit against the states in federal court.
1795 · Yazoo Land Fraud

Age 1

As Georgia had been weakened during the Revolutionary War, it was unable to defend its Yazoo lands, or land west of the Yazoo River. Thirty-five million acres were sold to four companies for $500,000 as Governor George Mathews signed the Yazoo Act on January 7, 1795. Angry Georgians protested in the streets as they felt bribery and corruption were involved and the sale was far below market value. The legislation tried to rescind the Yazoo Act, but much of the land had been sold to third parties. The issue made its way to the United States Supreme Court and it was determined that rescinding the law was an unconstitutional infringement on a legal contract. The government took full possession of the territory by 1814 and awarded its claimants over $4,000,000.
1800 · Movement to Washington D.C.

Age 6

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 (Cumbria): habitational name from either of two villages in Cumbria, named in Old English with mūs ‘mouse’ (perhaps a byname) + grāf ‘grove’ ( see Grove 1). The Norman surname de Mucegros, established in Herefordshire and elsewhere in the 12th and 13th centuries, is unrelated and has died out.
