During the 1820s, America was just coming out of the Panic of 1819. The U.S. was still in a depression. The Northern and Southern states disputed about tariffs (Tariff of Abominations), which led to the agreement of the price of tariffs being lovered to the prices of tariffs in 1816, and the Force Bill, which allows the President of the United States to use the militia against a state that did not pay its taxes.

The U.S. did not mint silver dollars between 1805 and 1835 inclusive. Please check the date and post a new, separate question with a more complete description of the coin.…
American foreign policy in the years between 1820 and 1900 began with the establishment of the Monroe Doctrine, which warned European countries not to intervene in the aff…airs of Central and South America. It promised to protect the western hemisphere from European imperialism. It continued to exercise European neutrality.
Texas was part of Mexico at this time. Texas also was sparsely populated and Mexico wanted settlers to come and protect the area from Native Americans. Mexico citizens did… not want to settle there, so the Mexican government invited Americans to settle and offered a tax exemption for a period of ten years.
I don't think that it happened that way really. Americans didn't wake up one day and think... "hey, let's create a whole new division of literature for ourselves. Whoo-h…oo!" It was more like people were writing, wherever they lived, and people were reading it... it wasn't until someone decided to teach classes about it, or market it, that it needed to be distinguished as "American" or "British" literature. As for why it was the 1820s... think that is an arbitrary date, but you couldn't really have American Literature before there was an independent group over here. I think 1820 is too late, because there are definitely American documents from before that... but again, it is just an arbitrary division that someone probably made to make it easier to teach an American Lit class.
The American identity was formed during these years by the Revolutionary War. Also, after the war, a new constitution was written by the founding fathers, which differenti…ated the country from Great Britain.
it is what makes up america
That's a big question, so I'll try to be brief. There wasn't any. Expand the time frame by 5 years ahead, and you'll have your answer. But in that 40 year period, states f…ought hard to keep the status quo. Decisions like the Mason-Dixon line, the Missouri Compromise, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act moved the nation, but it moved it in a circle, coming back to where the debates started just in time to come up with a new compromise. The nation was getting nowhere fast. Slavery was eventually limited or deigned to Popular Sovereignty, but it was also PROTECTED where it already existed. With the nation spiraling toward war with itself, Women didn't have much of a voice. Congress had bigger problems than to worry about whether women should be able to vote. Suffrage was put on the sidelines. The foundations for the great Social Reformers was laid in these times, but it was non-existent. Oddly, as important as Social Reform was at this time, very little was accomplished. America finally moved in a specific direction when the guns of Charleston fired on Fort Sumter... Hopefully, we wont have to do the same thing for Social Reform today. If it comes to that, you can be sure I wont find myself in South Carolina on that day...
Texas, then the independence of Texas happened in the 1830s i believe
Americans were attracted to Texas in the 1820s because Spain offered land at about 4 cents an acre, while land in the United States cost about $1.25 an acre at that time.
Mixed Economy which means free market system but government still has limited role
Mexico offered them cheap land a freer lifestyle on the frontier
Mexico offered them cheap land and a freer lifestyle on the frontier
21 stars were on the flag of the United States of America from January 1 until July 4th, 1820. Then on July 4th after two more states joined (Alabama and Maine) the USA 2 more… stars were added for a total of 23 stars.
American settlers in Texas were upset with Mexico because they did not like following Mexican laws and dealing with documents that were Spanish. also the Mexicans outlawed sla…very in Texas. (5-6-13) There were no "Americans" in Texas in 1820. Mexico won independence from Spain in 1821, and soon allowed US settlers into Texas, the first settlers from the US arrived in1822. The only "conflict" in the 20s was over the permission to settle which had been granted by Spain in 1820 to Moses Austin and if the permission still held under independent Mexico, logically it did not, but Mexico passed a General Colonization Act allowing US settlers. A minor conflict was over how much power the persons granted land by Mexico to then sell to settlers had over that land and settlers. The colonies were far from Mexican centers of government, and those land grantees, called empresarios, basically acted as the government over their grants. As time went on the empresarios governed more as if they were under US laws than Mexican. Early on this was no problem for Mexico, mostly due to communications over the distance. But later as more settlers arrived and the way of life became less Mexican, including Official State Religion, and more American, including following the long standing American traditions of slavery, standing armed citizen militias, and Steven Austin's creation of a roving para-military, the Rangers, and as communication improved the conflicts increased. In the late 20s and early 30s the Mexican government made changes in the laws to gain more control over Texas and bring it back in line with national values which soon brought the conflicts to a head.
Mexico offered them land
