The new Bank was applied by President James Madison.

On 22 March, the first rebound arrived. The petition was rejected by the State Assembly Vice President George Clinton's party.
When the Assembly reconvened in 1812, it then faced demands that two additional banks be founded by Clinton's merchants and associates of the former Bank of the USA. Join one, elder statesman Samuel Osgood. He had a strategy. - He had a plan. The State legislators sponsored the original 1811 petition. He will be named chairman of the new bank himself. Half of the rest on the board would be secured by the original traders allied with Madison, while the remainder would go for the new traders who backed Clinton. The Charter now sailed to the State Assembly with more general support and came into being on 16 June 1812 on the City Bank of New York. Though three months earlier Clinton died of a heart attack, now almost half of the new bank's board in his homeland has been dominated by his supporters.
