Robert Fulton and the Clermont
Robert Fulton and Robert Livingston introduced steamboat Cleront on the Hudson River and got a monopoly on ferry service between NY and NJ
Gibbons v. Ogden
Competitors filed suit to break Fulton-Livingston monopoly and Supreme court ruled in favor of plantiffs. Effect --> state-granted monopolies collapsed and steamboats were used more and more
Thought of as crazy but connected Lake Erie with Hudson River. Started canal boom and greatly reduced price of shipping
Squatters and speculators
Speculators --> bought up land to sell to farmers. Squatters --> just moved into land, simple people, wanted to keep their land (Preemtion)
