-One of the prerequisites for industrialization is an efficient system for transporting raw material to factories and finished goods to markets. The U.S. did not have this system in the early years of the republic.
-One way to solve this problem was to look for customers overseas. Among the first acts of the new Congress were two tariff bills giving preference to American ships in American ports, helping to stimulate an expansion of domestic shipping. More important was the outbreak of war in Europe, allowing Yankee merchant vessels to take over most of the carrying trade between Europe and the Western Hemisphere.
-popular among some evangelical Christians in America as early as 1800.
-By the 1820s, there were approximately 1000 meetings a year, most of them in the South and West. The estimated attendance at some of the larger meetings was as large as 25000 people. Today, there are many "megachurches" throughout the United States.

-form of religions or beliefs originated among Enlightenment philosophers in France. Deists accepted the existence of God, but considered God a remote being who, after having created the universe, had withdrawn from direct involvement with the human race and its sin.

-the cotton gin=cotton growing spread into the upland South and beyond, and within a decade total crop production increased eightfold. African American slavery, which with the decline of tobacco production some had considered a dwindling institution regained its importance, expanded, and became more firmly fixed upon the South.

-Congress enacted a drastic measure known as "the Embargo." To prevent war brink insidents. It became one of the most controversial political issues of its time.
-The Embargo prohibited American ships from leaving the US for any foreign port anywhere in the world.

Iroquois women, who had traditionally done the farming, were to move into more-domestic roles. When some women resisted the change, Handsome Lake denounced them as witches. He demanded confessions from them and killed some of those who refused.
-On December 15, 1814, delegates from the New England states met in Hartford, Connecticut, to discuss their grievances. it reasserted the right of nullification and proposed seven amendments to the Constitution- amendments designed to protect New England from the growing influence of the south and the West.

Jackson's smashing victory at New Orleans reached the cities of the NEw England.

When the American commander, James Barron, refused to allow the British to search the Chesapeake, the Leopard, opened fire. Barron had no choice but to surrender, and a boarding party from the Leopard dragged four men of the American frigate. Jefferson expelled all British warships from American waters to lessen the likelihood of future incident.

-Having won control of the executive and legislative branches of government, the Republicans looked with suspicion on the judiciary, which remained largely in the hands of Federalist judges. Federalists had long maintained that the Supreme Court had the authority to nullify acts of Congress, and the Court itself had actually exercised the power of judicial review in 1996 when it upheld the validity of a law passed by the legislature.
-Court's authority in this area would not be secure until it actually declared a congressional act unconstitutional.

Women should have precisely the same education opportunities as men. they should have opportunities to earn their own living, to establish a role for themselves in society apart from their husbands and families.

Once Jefferson became president, the new secretary of state, James Madison was responsible for transmitting appointments. He had refused to hand over the commission to Marbury. Marbury appealed to the Supreme Court for an order directing Madison to perform his official duty.
-In its historic ruling, the Court found that Marbury had a right to his commission but that the Court had no authority to order Madison to deliver it. On the surface, the decision was a victory for the administration.
