US Debt is Zero, 1835

For the first and only time in history, the US national debt is at zero.

Of course this didn’t last long, especially with the Civil War looming in the near future, but it happened nonetheless.

I think it’s pretty neat that America was able to do that after not even a century of nationhood. What about you?
