1804 · The Twelfth Amendment

Age 0

With not having a very clear statement in the Constitution about Presidents and Vice Presidents, the Twelfth Amendment was Born. Before the Electoral College could cast two votes for those that they saw fit for President. This was changed to just one electoral vote for President and one electoral vote for Vice President. With the amount of people even allowed to vote, there was no way for there to be a tie during the elections.
1827 · Slavery Becomes Illegal in New York State

Age 23

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.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Romsey in Hampshire, so named from the genitive case of the Old English personal name Rūm (a short form of compound names with the first element rūm) + Old English ēg ‘island’, ‘dry land in a fen’.
