1st US Congress

 • America's Hexagram • 

wanted Part of Fortune for US Military. decided to use 04-Mar-1789 when Articles of Confederation took effect [+]; George Washington inaugurated 30-Apr-1789 [+][+][+][+][+][+][+] (Adjourned to 11 o'clock to-morrow morning).


Until the Constitutional Convention, the military presence in what became known as the United States was organized by each U.S. state as a voluntary or conscripted militia. Since 1789, the United States Constitution has provided authority for the Congress to levy taxes and to raise a navy and national militia. Federal legislation eventually led to the modern nationalized system of military in the country. Historically, the amount of money the U.S. government spends on the military has often been a politically contentious issue. [+]

The First United States Congress was a meeting of the United States national legislature, comprised of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. It met in New York, New York and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from March 4, 1789 to March 3, 1791. This Congress sat during the first two years of the first administration of U.S. President George Washington. The apportionment of seats in the House of Representatives was based on the provisions of the United States Constitution. [+]

CANTILEVER: {a} Crescent City Connection (formally the Greater New Orleans Bridge) twin cantilever bridges over Mississippi River, played role in Hurricane Katrina; {b} NOLA levees a single cantilever sheet pile, "The sheet pile acts as a cantilever and the bending moment is a function of the height of water cubed. Unless the sheet pile had a large section modulus, which I doubt, the levee would fail. If the sheet pile was not driven deep enough to obtain a resisting moment, failure occurs. If the sheet pile, over its entire depth,encounters an old buried swamp, failure can occur" (The Story Behind the Katrina Story).

SWAN: from The Writings of Thomas Jefferson (To the Chiefs of the Ottawas, Chippewas, Powtewatamies, Shawanese and Wyandot):


My Children, — I have considered the speech you have delivered me, and will now make answer to it. You have gone back to ancient times, and given a true history of the uses made of you by the French, who first inhabited your country, and afterwards by the English; and how they used you as dogs to set upon those whom they wanted to destroy. They kept the hatchet always in your hand, exposing you to be killed in their quarrels, and then gave you whiskey that you might quarrel and kill one another. I am glad you understand these things, and are determined no more to fight their battles. We shall never wish you to fight ours, but to stay at home in peace and take care of yourselves. You still wish, however, to keep up a correspondence with the English, because you say your young people find an advantage in it. The less you have to do with them the better, because all their endeavors will be, as you know, to persuade you to go to war for them.. If they owe you for lands, they ought to pay you once for all and be done with it. With respect to your people on the English side of the water, should we have war with the English, let them remain neutral and we shall not disturb them; but if the English should endeavor to force them into the war, you would do well to receive them and let them live with you till we can clear the way for them to go back again, which will not take long.
. . . .
You ask whether the treaties at Swan's Creek, and those of the last fall, and the fall before, were made by my desire. I will explain the subject to you. We consider your lands as belonging fully to yourselves, and that we have no right to purchase them but with your own free consent. Whenever you wish to sell, we are willing to buy, although it may be lands which we do not immediately want. We believe it to be for your benefit to sell a part of your lands for annuities, which may enable you to improve farms, and in the meantime to support yourselves. While you keep such large tracts of country, the few deer which remain tempt you to continue hunters, and are yet not enough to maintain you plentifully through the year. A small part of the land cultivated in corn, with the cattle, hogs, and sheep it would enable you to raise, would maintain you better through the year, than the whole does in game. A thorough persuasion, therefore, that it is better for you to turn your surplus lands from time to time into money, induces us to buy when you desire to sell. On this principle, at the treaty of Swan's Creek we purchased the slip of land which lay between what you sold to the Connecticut company and our former lines. We had no particular desire to buy it, but were told that it would be convenient to you to sell that parcel, and therefore we bought it.
. . . .
(another letter two weeks later) The Secretary of War has explained to you the circumstances which attended the running the boundary line near Sandusky, under the treaty at Swan's Creek, so as to satisfy you that no variation of it was intended; and you may be assured that when we proceed to run the lines for the roads granted us the last fall, you shall have notice, in order that your chiefs may attend and see it fairly done. [+]

there's a Swan's Creek Plantation in Powhatan County, Virginia. from Thomas Jefferson Notes on the State of Virginia: "Patowmac is 7 1/2 miles wide at the mouth; 4 1/2 at Nomony bay; 3 at Aquia; 1 1/2 at Hallooing point; 1 1/4 at Alexandria. Its soundings are, 7 fathom at the mouth; 5 at St. George's island; 4 1/2 at Lower Matchodic; 3 at Swan's point, and thence up to Alexandria; thence 10 feet water to the falls, which are 13 miles above Alexandria." (see Harpers Ferry, West Virginia).

Powhatan refers to one of the most powerful Indian chiefs in early american history, a tribe & a confederacy — Chief Powhatan was also Pocahontas' father (see Asteroid #1345-POTOMAC).


Little Snow-Feather: "According to the early colonists, Pocahontas, like all other Powhatans, had two names. Pocahontas, the name given to her by her father, was translated by the English to mean 'Bright Stream Between Two Hills' but in the Powhatan tongue perhaps meant 'Little Wanton.' Her secret name, known only among her own tribesmen, was Matoax, 'Little Snow Feather,' a name conjuring up the image of a slim, amber-skinned girl enveloped from neck to knee in a mantle woven of snow-white feathers plucked from the breast of a wild swan. Such a mantle, worn by Pocahontas in winter with moccasins and leggings of finely dressed white skins, would have given her people ample reason for calling her Matoax." (From G. S. Woodward's Pocahontas, p. 40.) [+]
