Because it was the last date our government had a zero debt balance. One hundred seventy five years later...not so much. Food for thought. Talk amongst yourselves. :)
Blah....That number is gross debt, the first time in history the federal government borrowed money. Not a big deal
Net debt would have been a more interesting number. I know we loaned boat loads to Europe after WW2.
That percentage of GDP chart is amazing!
I am trusting this is true. It is Wikipedia and could be filled with inaccuracies.
So far we have one *Blah* and one *Amazing*. So far so good. :)
