When reenacting or acting as a historical interpreter, its good to have a few historical dates and stories to share. This series will publish a few.

June 20, 1790 – During a dinner meeting with Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison drafted a bill to move the Federal Capital to a southern state and the assumption of all debt from the Revolutionary War by the Federal Government.  As a result of this compromise, the Federal Capital will move to Philadelphia from 1790 to 1800 while the new grand capitol is constructed and the First Bank of the United States will be established.
