World Events (8)

1830 · The Second Great Awakening

Age 4

Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.
1836 · The Massive Internal Improvements Act

Age 10

The Massive Internal Improvements Act of 1836 loaned Indiana $10,000,000 to create infrastructure such as canals, railroads, and roads across the state. The act was signed by Whig Governor Noah Noble and passed by the Indiana General Assembly. However, the financial crisis known as the Panic of 1837 thwarted these plans as costs ballooned. Construction on the infrastructure was not completed and the state debt rapidly increased.
1844 · Lumpkin's Jail

Age 18

In 1844 when Robert Lumpkin bought land in Virginia, this would be the spot of the Infamous Slave Jail (or Lumpkin’s Jail). The slaves would be brought here during the slave trade until they were sold. Lumpkin had purchased the land for his own slave business.

Name Meaning

1 English: habitational name from a place in Derbyshire, of unknown etymology (probably a pre-English hill name, but the form is obscure).2 German: from the genitive plural of Kind ‘child’, possibly denoting someone who had a lot of children, as in Hans der Kinder ‘Hans of the children’ (Eisleben 15th century), or short for some compound such as Kindervater ‘male midwife’ or Kinderfreund ‘one who likes children’.3 German: variant of Günther ( see Guenther ).
