    World Events (3)

    1819 · Panic! of 1819

    With the Aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars the global market for trade was down. During this time, America had its first financial crisis and it lasted for only two years. 

    1820 · Making States Equal

    The Missouri Compromise helped provide the entrance of Maine as a free state and Missouri as a slave state into the United States. As part of the compromise, slavery was prohibited north of the 36°30′ parallel, excluding Missouri.

    1822 · Slave Rebellion

    "On June 16, 1822, Denmark Vesey a free and self-educated African American leads a slave rebellion called ""the rising."" The interesting thing about this rebellion is that it does not really happen. The only thing the judges have to go on is the testimony of people that witness it."

    Name Meaning

    English, Scottish, and Irish (Down): habitational and ethnic name from Middle English Scot ‘man from Scotland’. There is no evidence that the surname denoted either of the earlier senses of Scot as ‘(Gaelic-speaking) Irishman’ or ‘man from Alba’, the Gaelic-speaking region of Scotland north of the river Forth. This surname is also very common among African Americans.

    English and Scottish: from the rare Middle English personal name Scot (Old English Scott, possibly also Old Norse Skotr), only certainly attested in northern England.

    English: variant of Scutt .
