Abstract:
This article examines the spirit and egalitarianism of Jacksonian Democracy on the state level rather than the national level via an examination of the state constitutional convention of 1835. The legal reforms brought on by Jackson's presidency were so extensive that several states required constitutional conventions to make the necessary changes to their laws. North Carolina's constitutional convention is exemplary of the various influences at work on the delegates and of the mood of the times, as well as providing insight into the phenomenon of Jacksonian Democracy on a local level.

Towns grew into cities because of population increases after the industrial revolution occurred. Growth was unplanned and haphazard, straining infrastructure. The years between 1900 and 1913 saw interest in reform, design, beautification, and city clean-up. Between 1913 and 1929, city planning was formalized, and supporting organizations including chambers of commerce, City Beautiful and city planning commissions were formed. Regulations like zoning ordinances, city plans and studies, and subdivision regulations were created.
