It took me a while to track it down, but here (pdf) is an online version of the US statistical information from colonial times. The link I have given takes you to the federal government’s stats, but you can use the left-hand navigation to get at all of the information.

In particular, check out page 38 of the pdf. The bottom table lists the federal budget from the 1890s through 1939. Tell me your opinion of Calvin Coolidge doesn’t go up a few notches.
