    1836 · The Massive Internal Improvements Act

    Age 3

    The Massive Internal Improvements Act of 1836 loaned Indiana $10,000,000 to create infrastructure such as canals, railroads, and roads across the state. The act was signed by Whig Governor Noah Noble and passed by the Indiana General Assembly. However, the financial crisis known as the Panic of 1837 thwarted these plans as costs ballooned. Construction on the infrastructure was not completed and the state debt rapidly increased.

    Name Meaning


    nickname from Middle English lefman, lemman, leman ‘lover, sweetheart’. This is probably the chief source of the surname. There is no connection with the word denoting the citrus fruit (which is of Persian origin).

    from the Middle English personal name Leman, Old English Lēofmann, from lēof ‘dear, beloved’ + mann ‘man’, the ultimate source of the name in 1 above.
