On the 27th of June 1839, the schooner Amistad, being the property of Spanish subjects, cleared out from the port of Havana, in the island of Cuba, for Puerto Principe, in the same island.
And instead of intelligent and comparatively civilized men, languishing in captivity and suffering under the restraints of the prison, he found them the veriest animals in existence, perfectly contented in confinement, without a ray of intelligence, and sensible only to the wants of the brute.

 TAKE ONE: 15 Fevrier 1839. - Review - movie review
The movie opens on February 14, 1839, the day when leader Marie Thomas Chevalier De Lormier and his comrade--in--arms, Swiss--born rebel Charles Hindelang are told they will hang in 24 hours.
15 fevrier 1839 is Falardeau's dream project, the one obviously meant to be a mystical touchstone that illuminates his other work.
The disquieting thing about 15 fevrier 1839 derives from the picture's echoes of buzzwords and issues that are in the air presently, at the beginning of the 21st century.

 April, 1839
Lincoln writes on margin of Sangamon County mortgage record: "We do hereby enter full satisfaction on the within mortgage this 4th April 1839 Stuart and Lincoln attorneys for the administrator of Nicholas Sintz, deceased." St. Clair Chrisman gave mortgage to Nicholas Sintz April 5, 1836, in consideration of $1,200.
Notice appears in today's "Sangamo Journal" which is probably from Lincoln's pen: "We, a portion of the Sangamon delegation learning that great disatisfaction prevails among you, relative to the New Revenue Law, ask the favor of you, to attend a public discussion.
Leroy L. Hill gives Lincoln and Benjamin Talbott, trustees of A. Herndon, trust deed to tract containing 79.48 acres, and to lot in Springfield in consideration of loan of $350 for 12 months at 12 per cent.

 CoinResource - Braided Hair Cents 1839-1857 Coin Guide
By 1839, few people inside or outside the U.S. Mint were satisfied with the large cent design, least of all its creator, Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht.
Issues of 1839 through early 1843, now generally called the Petite Head, show Liberty leaning forward and feature a younger-looking version than Gobrecht's later rendition, on which the head is upright and poised more gracefully in the field.
Proofs are known of all dates except 1839, 1851 and 1853, and all are rare to extremely rare.

 Re: 1839 Invention   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Gerald, I think the original question dealt with something "invented" in 1839 that changed the course of warfare on the plains.
Actually, 1839 was the patent year for improvements on the earlier invention.
The events in 1839 that you listed probably contributed in many ways to changes, but I don't view them as "inventions".

 1839 Matilda Spalding Davison Article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Note 1: The majority of the sentences in the "Origin of the 'Book of Mormon" section of this article can hardly be the exact words of a "woman in private life," as Parley P. Pratt noted in 1839.
Parley P. Pratt, in his 1839 letter, mentions the defection of "the deacon of his [Storrs'] church." A follow-up interview was conducted with Spalding's widow by Jesse Haven in 1839.
The probability this particular Jesse Haven and his sister "Elizabeth" were Mormons is supported by the comments of Charlotte Haven in her 1843 letters from Quincy and Nauvoo (where a sister "Elizabeth" and a family of Mormon Havens are spoken of).

 CoinResource - Seated Liberty No Motto Half Dollars 1839-1866 Coin Guide
Well into 1839, new fifty-cent pieces continued to bear the Capped Bust likeness of Liberty long viewed with affection by collectors.
Since 1836, however, Capped Bust halves had lost a key part of their earlier distinctiveness and charm because they were being made on a steam press and with reeded edges, rather than the old-style lettered edges.
Coins produced from the very first obverse die show a larger rock upon which Libery is seated and no trace of drapery at the crook of her elbow, while subsequent strikes all exhibit a fold of drapery there (unless they have undergone excessive wear).

 1839-O Capped Bust Half Dollar
The obverse die used for their production was a new one shipped that year from Philadelphia, but the reverse was one of the two dies shipped in 1838.
It is very possible, therefore, that the 1838`O' Proofs and the 1839`O' Proofs were struck during the same short time frame, since the 1838`O' obverses were defaced on June 21, 1839.
The 1839`O' Proofs seem to have been struck before the business strikes from the same dies, as the reverse breaks visible on the Stack's September, 1992 piece are not as advanced as those so far seen on 1839`O' business strikes from the same dies.
