Transcript of American Character and Believe System

A City Upon a Hill John Winthrop gave a speech to the people in the ship when they were coming to America in 1630, he want to be like a city upon a hill, be a example to the world. He wanted all stay together be like a family, suffer together and follow God. The Mayflower Compact The Mayflower Compact was the agreement that Pilgrims made with each other in 1620, because they came to a new country, be free, religion freedom and have self government so the kind from England wouldn't government them. Declaration of Independence United Stated Constitution Abraham Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address "Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall no perish from the earth" People Talk about americans like the people that do things that other people can't do or aren't used to do. American Character and Belief System came from different types of events that form the way that americans think and belief, for example in 1620 the pilgrims came to America to have religion freedom, and because they wanted to have a better life. They didn't wanted someone to controlled them like puppets they wanted to have freedom. In 1630 John Winthrop gave a speech telling the people they have to be together as one and follow God to prosper in the future generations. This two events give us the idea that Americans came from people that thought free and nobody couldn't controlled them.
Hundred years after in 1776 the colonies Declared their independence from England knowing that they can have their own government, again showing to the people that they wanted to be free. Ten years later they created the Constitution having balance of power and the three branches executive, legislative and judicial so no one in the government can have more power than the other. The Constitution give to the people the right to precipitate in decisions in the government, the constitution gave equality and liberty. Abraham Lincoln was one of Americas best president he gave a speech after the battle of Gettysburg saying that we should not fight over something that we all want. John F Kennedy when he was selected as a President he gave a speech that the country is made of the people. Martin Luther King gave a speech saying that all man are created equal. For all this events that is why the American Character and Belief System is made of great people that made this country better. American Character and Belief System John F. Kennedy's "Inaugural Address" "Only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour maximum danger" “But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free” Martin Lither King's "I have a Dream" Equal Rights Freedom of Speech Agreement The government is made of the people and without the people the government couldn't even exist , and this government that is create equal with all the effort of the framers. All the battles that happen around the world because of freedom, but one that we have as example is The Gettysburg Address, this wasn't a battle for liberty but slaves were liberated by Abraham Lincoln, and this was a big step in the country. The rights of the Negros have been change a lot but not enough to make them free. In the Declaration of Independence the 13 colonies declare their grievances to the King George. They declared that they want equals right for everyone, saying that they don't get nothing from England, and they wanted to be independent. After the Declaration of Independence the 13 colonies they became states, but this states didn't had balance of power, limited of government, so this made the country separated, and the constitution made all the principles work.
