1786 · Shays' Rebellion

Age 2

Caused by war veteran Daniel Shays, Shays' Rebellion was to protest economic and civil rights injustices that he and other farmers were seeing after the Revolutionary War. Because of the Rebellion it opened the eyes of the governing officials that the Articles of Confederation needed a reform. The Rebellion served as a guardrail when helping reform the United States Constitution.
1787 · New Jersey Plan

Age 3

"Also referred to as the Small State Plan, the New Jersey Plan was an important piece of legislation that William Paterson presented during the Constitutional Convention. The plan was created because states with smaller populations were concerned about their representation in the United States government. The New Jersey plan proposed, among other things, that each state would have one equal vote. This was in contrast to the Virginia Plan, which suggested that appointment for Congress should be proportional to state population. The Connecticut Compromise merged the two plans, allowing for two ""houses"" of congress: one with proportional representation, and the other with equal power from each state (as the New Jersey Plan had suggested)."
1800 · Movement to Washington D.C.

Age 16

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.
