    World Events (8)

    1819 · Panic! of 1819
    Age 7
    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. 
    1827 · Slavery Becomes Illegal in New York State
    Age 15
    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.
    1832 · The Black Hawk War
    Age 20
    Convinced that a group of Native American tribes were hostile, The United States formed a frontier militia to stop them in their tracks. Even though Black Hawk was hoping to avoid bloodshed while trying to resettle on tribal land, U.S. officials opened fire on the Native Americans. Black Hawk then responded to this confrontation by successfully attacking the militia at the Battle of Stillman's Run and then left northward. After a few months the militia caught up with Black Hawk and his men and defeated them at the Battle of Wisconsin Heights. While being weakened by hunger, injuries and desertion, Black Hawk and the rest of the many native survivors retreated towards the Mississippi. Unfortunately, Black Hawk and other leaders were later captured when they surrendered to the US forces and were then imprisoned for a year.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish: nickname from Gaelic cam ‘crooked, bent’ + beul ‘mouth’. As a result of folk etymology, the surname was often represented in Latin documents as de bello campo ‘of the fair field’, which led to the name sometimes being ‘translated’ into Anglo-Norman French as Beauchamp .Irish (North Armagh): adopted for Gaelic Mac Cathmhaoil ‘son of Cathmhaol’ (literally ‘battle chief’): see Caulfield and Cowell .English: variant of Camel , under the influence of the Scottish name (see 1 above).
