Arthur T. Pierson's Illustrious Heritage - Website
In 1639, a non-conformist preacher named Abraham Pierson landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts. One hundred and ninety eight years later, on this day, March 6, 1837, one of Abraham's most illustrious descendants, Arthur T. Pierson, was born in New York City. He was the ninth of ten children. Like his forefather Abraham, he became a powerful preacher.

Berlioz' Requiem First Performed - Website
A requiem is a mass for the dead. Many composers have set the ceremony's solemn text to music. Among the most famous requiems are those of Mozart (unfinished at his death), Giuseppi Verdi, Gabriel Faure and Maurice Durufle. (Brahm's beautiful German Requiem must be categorized separately, for it is based on Bible selections rather than on the Catholic liturgy.

Murder of Abolitionist Elijah P. Lovejoy - Website
When Elijah Lovejoy was born in Maine on November 9, 1802, none of his family could have imagined the violent death he met almost exactly 35 years later. Elijah was murdered on November 7, 1837. The murder was a big mistake by the pro-slavery mob. John Quincy Adams wrote that Elijah's death was like an earthquake shock that would be felt not only across America, but in the most distant regions of the earth.

Pictures of Panic
"During the century separating the 1830s from the 1930s, proponents of laissez-faire were so successful in advocating an economy that purportedly operated independent of the political system that New Deal supporters had to convince voters that the government could (and should) intervene economically on behalf of suffering Americans. In the 1930s, Dorothea Lange used a technology unavailable in 1837 to photograph the plight of economic victims in her composition "Migrant Mother." Shot in a California pea picker's camp during the Great Depression for the government's Farm Security Administration, the photograph is strikingly similar to "Specie Claws." The posture of the central characters is nearly identical. Both pictures appeal to emotion to make an argument about the effects of economic events on families.…"

America's economic meltdowns - Los Angeles Times
Speculation has been followed by collapse at least as far back as the South Sea bubble of 1720. The Panic of 1819 followed a period of crazy exuberance during which ordinary, nose-to-the-grindstone people found themselves tempted to risk too much. In the years leading up to 1819, a booming demand for cotton fueled a price spike. Men with money got rich buying and selling land and slaves as cotton prices rose dramatically. Men without money borrowed to invest, betting on the windfall from next year's crop. An estimated four-fifths of Philadelphia's skilled artisans faced the winter of 1819-1820 without work -- in an age with no benefits, no welfare, no Medicaid. Panics always subsided, then they came back again. A cotton boom recurred in the 1830s, collapsing in 1837. The next three big panics -- in 1857, 1873 and 1893 -- fed off railroad development accompanied by currency and stock speculation. The Crash of 1929 yielded a worldwide Great Depression.

Panic of 1837 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Economist Milton Friedman explains (1960 p 10):

The banking panic of 1837 was followed by exceedingly disturbed economic conditions and a long contraction to 1843 that was interrupted only by a brief recovery from 1838 to 1839. This Great Depression is particularly interesting for our purposes. It is the only depression on record comparable in severity and scope to the Great Depression of the 1930s, and its monetary concomitants largely duplicate those of its later mate. In both, a substantial fraction of the banks in the United States went out of existence through suspension or merger --around one quarter in the earlier and over one-third in the later contraction--and the stock of money fell by about one-third. There is no other contraction that even closely approaches this dismal record. In both cases, erratic or unwise governmental policy with respect to money played an important part.
