Age 1

During the years 1799 to 1827, New York went through a period of gradual emancipation. A Gradual Emancipation Law was passed in 1799 which freed slave children born after July 4, 1799. However, they were indentured until 25 years old for women and 28 years old for men. A law passed 1817 which freed slaves born before 1799, yet delayed their emancipation for ten years. All remaining slaves were freed in New York State on July 4, 1827.
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.

1847 · Moving the State Capital

Age 21

The capital of Michigan was moved from Detroit to Lansing on March 17, 1847. The capital was moved to be further away from Canada, to encourage settlement and boost economy toward the inner regions of the state, and to make to capital more accessible to everyone statewide.

Name Meaning

1 English: occupational name for a dresser of cloth, Old English fullere (from Latin fullo, with the addition of the English agent suffix). The Middle English successor of this word had also been reinforced by Old French fouleor, foleur, of similar origin. The work of the fuller was to scour and thicken the raw cloth by beating and trampling it in water. This surname is found mostly in southeast England and East Anglia. See also Tucker and Walker .2 In a few cases the name may be of German origin with the same form and meaning as 1 (from Latin fullare).3 Americanized version of French Fournier .
