From 1790 to 1840, disability emerged as a legal, institutional, and cultural category in the United States, used for both social welfare and exclusion. The market for disability-related products and services boomed. This increasingly standardized and medicalized category of disability sheds new light on questions of citizenship, state formation, market growth, medicine, and social belonging, while also exposing the deep intersections of disability and American nation-building.
