    1841 · Indiana Nears Bankruptcy

    Age 14

    The State of Indiana was near bankruptcy in 1841 due to the inability to repay interest incurred for the Massive Internal Improvement Act. The state liquidated much of its public works. Many of the projects were handed over to the state’s creditors as a way to reduce debt. Only two of the eight proposed infrastructure projects were completed by the creditors.

    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name from an unrecorded Middle English sponer, of uncertain meaning. It appears to be a derivative of Middle English spon ‘chip of wood, shingle, spoon’, and could denote either someone who made or fitted wooden roofing shingles or who made and sold spoons as eating implements, typically of wood or horn.
