Here are some one liners...
Between Prejudice and Principle -- The Jews are made naturalized citizens.... and then not. I talk about how in the Age of Enlightenment certain people understand that prejudice is wrong, but they can't make the right thing happen.
The Marriage Act... A Comedy -- A marriage license is now required and you must be 21 or have permission of your parents. I also talk about one of the first comic books that addresses this subject.
Oh Say Can You See? -- James McHenry is born. I talk a little bit about the Star Spangled banner.
Between Prejudice and PrincipleSomething profound is changing in the thinking of Europe and Great Britain. This is the Age of Enlightenment and it is expressed in a change in British Law this year. The law treats Jews as foreigners, so Jews must pay a foreigners tax to do business. The law also states that overseas trade with its colonies can only be conducted between British subjects. With 1% of the Jews in New York doing 12% of the overseas business with Great Britain, the law has come into conflict with reality... and for no good reason. Most of Parliament and King George the 2nd find it barbaric that the Jews should be treated differently from any other British subject, so they pass a law making Jews into naturalized citizens. Unfortunately, his law causes such an uproar with the rank-and-file that it will be repealed next year. The basic elements of naturalization will have to be won in the courts.   
The Marriage Act... A ComedyIf you say you are married, then you are married. (A religious ceremony is acceptable but not required.) Promises are made. Gifts on condition of marriage are given. Contracts are negotiated and when everyone is agreeable, you consummate the marriage... or maybe before that. If something goes wrong in the midst of these negotiations, you need some serious legal help sorting out who-said-what-to-whom. If I put out money for an expensive ring and then find out that she is already engaged to three other guys and her pet cat, I should be able to get the ring back. And it works the other way too. If a young miss has given up on other suitors in order to marry me and then I skip out, she should be able to keep the ring. In order for the courts to sort out these cases, the English Parliament passes a law requiring that all marriages be licensed by the state, and that a ceremony take place or that a public announcement be made. Both parties must be 21 years of age or older, unless given permission by their parents. (Jews and Quakers are exceptions to this marriage law.) This is the first time that modern law imposes regulations rather than guidelines for marriage.  
Oh Say Can You See?
- James McHenry is born. He will be a surgeon during the American Revolution, an aide to General George Washington and the 3rd Secretary of War under President George Washington and President John Adams. Fort McHenry will be named after him and during the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key will write an inspirational poem about the Battle of Baltimore called the "Defence of Fort M'Henry", or better known as the Star-Spangled Banner.
