The U.S settlers surging into the newly conquered Southwest were openly contemptuous of Mexican law (a civil law system based on the law of Spain) as alien and inferior and disposed of it by enacting reception statutes at the first available opportunity However they recognized the value of a few aspects of Mexican law and carried them over into their new legal systems for example most of the southwestern states adopted community property marital property systems as well as water law! 2 Issues The Capitol reconstruction took much longer than anticipated the Old Brick Capitol took only five months to complete; the Capitol took twelve years a committee appointed by Congress to investigate the damage to the District concluded that it was cheaper to rebuild the already existing and damaged buildings than to build an entirely new one. On February 13 1815 President Madison and Congress passed legislation to borrow $500,000 to repair the public buildings including the Capitol "on their present sites in the city of Washington". Benjamin Latrobe architect of the Capitol who took over for William Thornton in 1803 was rehired to repair the building on April 18 1815. He immediately requested 60,000 feet of boards 500 tons of stone 1,000 barrels of lime and brick. With the $500,000 borrowed from Washington banks, Latrobe was able to rebuild the two wings and the central dome before being fired in 1818 for being difficult. Charles Bulfinch took over and officially completed the renovations by 1826. Bulfinch modified Latrobe's design by increasing the height of the Capitol dome to match the diameter of 86 ft With the reconstruction of the public buildings in Washington the value of land in the area increased dramatically paving the way for the expansion of the city that developed in the years leading up to the American Civil War, Pennsylvania Yes 17.1 Scholarly books At the beginning of the war some Union commanders thought they were supposed to return escaped slaves to their masters by 1862 when it became clear that this would be a long war the question of what to do about slavery became more general the Southern economy and military effort depended on slave labor it began to seem unreasonable to protect slavery while blockading Southern commerce and destroying Southern production as Congressman George W Julian of Indiana put it in an 1862 speech in Congress the slaves "cannot be neutral as laborers if not as soldiers they will be allies of the rebels or of the Union." Julian and his fellow Radical Republicans put pressure on Lincoln to rapidly emancipate the slaves whereas moderate Republicans came to accept gradual compensated emancipation and colonization. Copperheads the border states and War Democrats opposed emancipation although the border states and War Democrats eventually accepted it as part of total war needed to save the Union. Washington and Georgetown retained their separate charters for seventy years until the District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871 That Act cancelled the charters of the towns and brought the entire area within the District borders under one district government ending any distinction between "the District of Columbia" and "Washington" making the two terms effectively synonymous!
