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

Americanized form of German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) Schneider ‘tailor’ and of its Slavicized (Czech, Slovak, Slovenian, and Croatian) form Šnajder (Czech mostly Šnajdr). The Slovenian and Croatian surname is in most cases derived from the dialect loanword šnajder ‘tailor’. Compare Sneider 1 and Snyder 1.

Dutch: variant, mostly Americanized, of Snieder or Snijder ‘tailor’ (see Snyder 2).

In some cases probably also an Americanized form of Slovenian Žnider: variant of Žnidar, from žnidar ‘tailor’, an archaic word of German origin (see Schneider , compare 1 above and Znidarsic ).
