1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land

Age 1

A United States law to provide financial relief for the purchasers of Public Lands. It permitted the earlier buyers, that couldn't pay completely for the land, to return the land back to the government. This granted them a credit towards the debt they had on land. Congress, also, extended credit to buyer for eight more years. Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.
1822 · Slave Rebellion

Age 2

"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."
1846

Age 26

U.S. acquires vast tracts of Mexican territory in wake of Mexican War including California and New Mexico.
