Supreme Court Cases
In the case Marbury v. Madison, Adams tried to appoint Marbury as a judge, and he even used the law to back him up, but this law approved to be unconstitutional. This court case is known to be a landmark of the U.S. Supreme court case because it created the judicial review, which allows the Supreme Court to see if any law is constitutional or unconstitutional.
The invention of mechanical reaper, steamboats, and improvement of roads and canal helped increase agricultural production. The Cotton Gin and the Interchangeable Parts are the two very important things Eli Whitney invented. The Cotton Gin made it easier to separate the seeds from the cotton. This did the work of 50 slaves in one day which led to an increase of slave labor. Interchangeable Parts made it easier and faster to create goods.
The Mexican War
When Texas was annexed into the United States, there was a dispute over whether the border of Texas was the Nueces River or the Rio Grande River. This was how the Mexican War started. The Manifest Destiny was the other cause of the Mexican War. This was the idea that Americans were destined to control all of the land from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended the war, and Mexico had to give up a huge chunk of land called the Mexican Cession. These were states like New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and California.
