“The Panic of 1819: The First Great Depression”
Museum of American Finance
The Panic of 1819 may be the most important event in American history that no one has heard of. It was the first nationwide financial crash, ushering in the first Great Depression and introducing the world to the business cycle – the pattern of booms and busts that we have come to know so well. But the Panic of 1819 had additional dire consequences, driving wedges between East and West, North and South that would help create the Missouri Crisis that Thomas Jefferson called “”a fire bell in the night.” 48 Wall Street, 5th floor. $5
