What was the American economy in the 1820s?
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.…
Mexico offered them cheap land a freer lifestyle on the frontier
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.
Texas, then the independence of Texas happened in the 1830s i believe
Washington Irving and James Fenimore Cooper
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 think that (according to my us history test book) the native Americans have been treated badly because they were known as outsiders that no one has known about or has any pa…st about. Many people dispized the native Americans at the time yet of course the native Americans were the people who greeted them onto their land, maybe not fight at first, but eventually, did not even know that they were going to be driven out of their homelands. they were one of the founding people or groups on the Americas and i think that we don't even try to help or recognize it. their are so many things that no one recognizes because of the things around them... no i am not a native American trying to get people to appreciate the natives, i am a person with understanding and tries to see everything in everyones perspective... even when it is really hard at times age 14
Why did American leaders support latin American struggles for independence from Spain in the early 1820s?
Latin Americans had supported American in its fight for Independence during the American revolution
Many factors, 2 of the major ones are: Expansion of the American Territory - Went from everyone living mostly East of the Appalachian mountains to thousands of people living… in the Oregon and California territories, in a matter of a few decades. The entire area from Texas to California was taken over, post-Mexican war, and the Great Plains were, if not taken over and homesteaded, were traveling routes. there were many new inventions - The Cotton Gin and the Reaper allowed cotton to be cleaned faster and grain/food crops to be harvested faster, thus either cutting down on the amount of man hours needed, or allowing the same number of man hours to create many times the amount of product. The Steam Boat and Steam powered Train allowed people and goods to travel further distances, cheaper and faster, with less risk of harm. Large scale manufacturing (aka "factories") had people living closer to their job, and receiving a regular income, so they began spending a regular income on rent and food. It also created more goods faster and cheaper, so that either more could be sold/traded or the profit margin could be higher, changing the economy with having one or two people receiving all of the profits. The Erie canal was "invented" giving greater travel area and trading area, and the Telegraph allowed everyone to communicate with each other much faster. (Messages such as "All the grain down here is ruined, buy more now" conceivably could have happened, with short term changes due to the economy in response... but seriously, the ability to communicate over vast areas is almost always good for the economy/country)
Spain was unable to persuade its own citizens to move to remote Texas. Spain then offered generous land grants in Texas to Americans who were Catholic, industrious, and willin…g to become Spanish citizens. Mexico continued this policy in 1921 by granting contracts to empresarios who would settle in Texas and supervise selected, qualified immigrants. Americans were attracted to Texas because of inexpensive land. Most American settlers thought that the United States would buy eastern Texas from Mexico which would stimulate immigration and provide buyers for their land, increasing the value of the land. Also, Mexico and the United States had no reciprocal agreements enabling creditors to collect debts or to return fugitives so many farmers who had defaulted on loans and faced seizure of their property, and, possibly, debtor's prison, headed for Texas where they could start over.
The Mexican land grants were very generous.
The GDP of the United States is sixty three times greater than that of the Philippines. The Philippines has a poverty rate of 26 percent compared to that of the U.S. which… is 15 percent.
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.
Mexicans invited the American settlers into Texas. Texas-Mexico invited Americans to settle in Texas to stop Indian attacks. These settlers were required to be Catholic, becom…e Mexican citizens, and follow Mexican laws.
