Age 17

This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The Amendment was later repealed.

Name Meaning

English: probably a habitational name from a lost or unidentified place named with Old English flēot ‘stream’, ‘estuary’ + wudu ‘wood’. The place of this name in Lancashire got its name in the 19th century from its founder, Sir Peter Hesketh Fleetwood, and is not the source of the surname.
