Talk:Plan for Establishing Uniformity in the Coinage, Weights, and Measures of the United States
|WikiProject United States|
Such a long title!!
Plan for Establishing Uniformity in the Coinage, Weights, and Measures of the United States is seriously long. The Jefferson report, referenced here, would be a lot shorter. Otr500 (talk) 02:26, 29 September 2011 (UTC) this is no longer one of the constituion Bold text
Congress and standard measurements in law
- Just edited the page to address this exact point, among others. Congress has officially designated units of measure, but piecemeal--nothing like Jefferson's grand unified proposals. Pfly (talk) 06:03, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
What Latitude - Really?
At one point the article states the seconds pendulum is at 45N, and at another point "the latitude of Paris." Paris is at nearly 49N, while Bordeaux in southern France is closer to 45N. So which was it? 45N, or the latitude of Paris?
