Quincy Adams needed to find the window of opportunity to gain Florida  

After The War of 1812 (Cont.)  Natives: 

  

Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole became the “Five Civilized Tribes” in 1815 began to adapt the surrounding white cultures (from government to slavery) Cherokee being the largest of the group and Seminoles were the smallest of the five Cherokee developed even more until they were able to reach an American-style “civilization” 

Early Industrialism  Revolution in Transport: 

1815 flat boats were hauling wheat, flour and salt pork for 2000 miles, from Pittsburgh to New Orleans First great federal transportation project was the National Road from Cumberland, Maryland to Potomac to Wheeling, Virginia and to the Ohio, which was from 1811 to 1818

 Canal Boom:  

System of canals to be created for the growing urban states Great Lake to flow into the Atlantic at the time for them was between Albany and Buffalo, it was approved in 1817  

Continued in 1818 when De Witt Clinton persuaded New York Legislature to continue by issuing bonds 364 miles long, 40 feet wide and 4 ft deep the Eerie Canal was complete

From 1830-40 other places wanted to extend the canal systems like Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois. However, the boom ended because most of the waterways were unprofitable.

Early Industrialism (Cont.)  Market Economy: 

Canals did help with shipping of goods   

Technology improvements:   

 

Cheaper Faster Surplus and mass production

Steel or iron plows Grain cradle was more useful than a scythe was for harvest New crops, grasses and livestock were introduced

Staple crops like wheat remained in the North Westward has problems like diseases in the crops, pests and soil depletion become a problem and continue to grow as a problem in older regions

As regions specialized in crops 

new market systems emerge

use of credit

Crucial element in this system 

It was need when merchants reached their ultimate destination like Liverpool or New York. It was also to encourage growth in money and banking.

Early Industrialism (Cont.)  

Stimulate Economy: gold and silver was available to only a few Bank notes were now issued to the public

Barely with the first Bank of the United States in 1811 to organize the money and credit

Attempt to create the second Bank of the United States in 1816 to check on state banks by forcing them to resume specie payments

Over extension of credit lead to the panic of 1819. In other words a financial panic that led to a depression.

People began to feel unsure about this method of economy

 1815, most ideas of manufacturing goods were in a household.  Southern New England the idea was changed towards mills. 

 

Textiles and clothes Originally mainly by the women at home and the higher quality version of textiles and clothes would be by artisans. In this age the artisans mainly became entrepreneurs and journeymen became wage earners.

Lowell, Massachusetts became a great place for early American industry. Factory Production changed the course of capitalist activity in the regions.

Early Industrialism (Cont.)  Cities  

In the 1800s the nation was more of a rural state. Then as Canals, industry, factories, and banks formed, soon the city life-style spread like wildfire with the expansion. Canals mainly helped out through transport of people.

 Era of Good Feeling  

People’s sense of nationalism was beginning to take place in the United States. After the War of 1812, the Federalists were no longer a challenge in the political status, it was mainly the Republicans. 1816 Monroe would be the successor of Madison. 

His challenge was to keep peace in the country.

The Missouri Compromise deals with Missouri being a slave state and Maine being a free state in February 1820.

Early Industrialism (Cont.)  Monroe Doctrine:   

December 3, 1823 It prevents any further colonization of European powers in the Americas. In Return the U.S. will not part take in internal European affairs.

 So America had a chance to prosper but, with caution to remember that Europe

still has no true acknowledgement of America .

Court Cases  John Marshall was the Chief of Justice for All three of these cases. 

Dartmouth College v. Woodward:  

McCulloch v. Maryland:   

In 1819, the court was to decide if Hampshire legislature had right to convert Dartmouth from private to state university. The ruling was that privately own businesses are protected, but anything related to the state was of their own choosing. In 1819 Maryland levied a tax on Baltimore branch Bank. The issue here was the establishment of a bank and if a state had the right to tax. In the end some powers were implied but overall the government is the one to oversee these issues.

Gibbons v. Ogden:   

The control of interstate commerce was rightfully for the congress however the right to protect private matters was important as well. It also shows Marshall’s decision making, and made the federal government broaden its powers at the expense of the states. This would lead to a nationwide capitalist country.
