    • NOTE 1./ Historical Reference: The Year Was 1829

      In the U.S., Andrew Jackson became the seventh president of the United States. A hero of the War of 1812, he had also been a senator and representative for Tennessee, and Justice of the Tennessee Superior Court. Nicknamed "Old Hickory", he appealed to the common man and held a public reception at his inauguration at the White House.

      The U.S. had banned the importation of slaves in 1808, but unfortunately, it didn't stop the trade. In 1829, a boat assigned to patrol the African Coast looking for slavers, intercepted the "Feloz" and a group from the interceptor boarded the ship. A first-hand account of the horrific conditions from one of the group, Rev. Robert Walsh, can be found online at EyeWitness to History.com.

      That year, Eng and Chang Bunker, the original Siamese twins arrived in America where they traveled around in exhibitions. They went on to tour through England and other countries in Europe for the next ten years and later settled in a small town in North Carolina, where they married two sisters.

      In the world of technology, William Austin Burt invented and received the first American patent for the "typographer"--an early version of the typewriter. Burt also held patents for a number of other inventions and did extensive surveying in the areas that are now Michigan and Wisconsin.
