The American Revolution
(Two video's and two assignments)

 

As you watch these video's try to get a sense as to the attitudes of most people. Very few people could imagine a nation that was not ruled by a king of some kind of dictator. In the beginning the American people loved King George but as the ideas of the Enlightenment took root in the minds of the Americans we began to change our attitude. Finally we came to the conclusion that we did  not need a king. In fact, the United States was the first country founded on an idea tather than some military conquest. We were the first people who believed that ordinary people could rule themselves. We did not need a king.

In the 1600's the Parliament tried to force King Charles I to sign the "Petition of Rights." He said that God made him the king and he did not have to obey Parliament.

Parliament cut off his head and tried to run the country without him. It was a disaster so Parliament asked his son, Charles II to become king and he did.

After the U.S. Constitution was written some states refused to ratify it without a Bill of Rights. The Founding Fathers drew from the English Bill of Rights and included one in the Constitution. This document is what you are going to study in this unit.

BEGINNINGS - WHY STUDY HISTORY


  • Study Lesson

  • QUIZ


    I hope you will make history a part of your life. My life has been enriched by my family history that I have acquired from conversations with my parents and grand parents. My Great Grandfather was in his 90s when he died. He actually told me about the time he watched men carrying Abraham Lincoln from Fords Theatre to a boarding house across the street.

    Get involved and record your family history in some way. Your children and grand children will love you for it
