7: Peace with England: | In 1817 United States and England agreed to set limits on the number of navel vessels each could have on the great lakes | The treaty provided removal of weapons along an imported part of the boarder between the United States and British and Canada

8: The Missouri Compromise | The Missouri compromise, reached in March 1820, provided for the admission of Missouri as a slave state and Maine a free state. | The Missouri compromise removed slavery in the rest of the Louisiana Territory north of 36 degrees and 30'N parallel

9: Political

10: The United States only had one leader from 1816-1824 and that was the Jefferson republications. The president campaign was one of the worst in American history. The republicans nominated William H Crawford, a former congress man for Georgia. Andrew Jackson and Henry Clay came form the west. Andrew Jackson continued to win the presidency.

11: Andrew Jackson: | Jackson did not win the election by majority but he won by plurality,which is the largest or single share

12: Economic! | The Economy was growing very fast with all the new ideas. like interchangeable parts and new factories

13: MONEY | At this time people were working in factories to make the money that they did

14: The Trail Of Tears.. | The Cherokee,Chickasaw,Choctaw,Creek and Seminole were living in eastern America before the European people arrived.When the settlers started moving in they demanded the land from the Native Americans.In 1830 Congress passed the Indian Removal Act. The Chickasaw,and Creek ended up moving. And the Cherokee and Seminole resisted. When the Cherokee finally gave in and moved in there journey, known as the "trail of tears" 4,000 died of cold, hunger or disease.

Lacrosse: is still being played today and it was originated from this time era! its played with a rubber ball and a long handled racquet | Lacrosse is the oldest sport played in the Americas today. And Grand Rapids has a team.

16: Technology | In 1793 Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin. Which was a simple machine that removed seeds from cotton fiber | This machine worked as much as 50 people working by hand. | Inventors were able to Patent their product, Which gave the inventor rights to the profits for a certain time period

17: New England Factories | The British did know want to go public with their new technology. | They were also trying to keep their workers from moving to the USA. A few of them managed to get away. | They were creating cotton needles. Once in the USA Francis Cabot Lowell opened a textile plant.

18: Thinking like a historian | Cause and effect-"Who did/did not support change"-The Cherokee Indians did not support change. | Using the past-"how is the past different from the present?"- Not all American Indians live on reservations. | Through their eyes-"how did people in the last view their world?"- The American Indians thought it was unfair and did not like it. | Change in continuity-" what has changed?"-The American Indians have gained more respect and we have a society of many different nations. | Turning points-" how did past discussions or actions affect future choices?" When people see how bad past events were they try harder to prevent them, like the Holocaust.
