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 1835inclusive. Please check the date and post a new, separate questionwith a more complete description of the coin.
American foreign policy in the years between 1820 and 1900 beganwith the establishment of the Monroe Doctrine, which warnedEuropean countries not to intervene in the affairs o…f Central andSouth America. It promised to protect the western hemisphere fromEuropean imperialism. It continued to exercise European neutrality.
Texas was part of Mexico at this time. Texas also was sparselypopulated and Mexico wanted settlers to come and protect the areafrom Native Americans. Mexico citizens did not w…ant to settlethere, so the Mexican government invited Americans to settle andoffered 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-hoo!". … 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.
When Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821, the territories it possessed included Mexico, most of Central America (Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua…, Costa Rica and Panama) as well as today's US States of California, Nevada, Utah, Texas and parts of Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Wyoming. Due to the extremely low population for such territorial extension (estimated at only 12 million residents in 1824), Mexico relaxed its immigration policies and allowed American settlers to help populate the northern territories. The conditions to settle were simple: 1) to pledge allegiance to Mexico and 2) observe the Mexican Law and customs.
The American identity was formed during these years by theRevolutionary War. Also, after the war, a new constitution waswritten by the founding fathers, which differentiated t…he countryfrom 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… fought 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.
