Transcript: HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES HISTORY HISTORY The history of the United States is what happened in the past in the United States, a country in North America. Native Americans lived in the Americas for thousands of years. English people in 1607 went to the place now called Jamestown, Virginia. Other European settlers went to the colonies, mostly from England and later Great Britain. France, Spain, and the Netherlands also colonized North America. In 1775, a war between the thirteen colonies and Britain began when the colonists were upset over tyrannical British policies. Just after dawn on April 19, 1775 the British attempted to disarm the colonists, thus beginning the war with the "Shot Heard Round the World." On July 4, 1776, Founding Fathers wrote the United States Declaration of Independence. They won the Revolutionary War and started a new country. They signed the constitution in 1787 and the Bill of Rights in 1791. The first colonies to set up The first colonies to set up. The colonial history of the United States covers the history of European colonization of America from the early 16th century until the incorporation of the colonies into the United States of America. In the late 16th century, England, France, Spain, and the Netherlands launched major colonization programs in America. The death rate was very high among those who arrived first, and some early attempts disappeared altogether, such as the English Lost Colony of Roanoke. Nevertheless, successful colonies were established within several decades. European settlers came from a variety of social and religious groups, including adventurers, farmers, indentured servants, tradesmen, and a few from the aristocracy. American Revolutionary war American Revolutionary war. The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), also known as the American War of Independence, was an 18th-century war between Great Britain and its Thirteen Colonies (allied with France) which declared independence as the United States of America.[ After 1765, growing constitutional and political differences strained the relationship between Great Britain and its colonies. Patriot protests against taxation without representation followed the Stamp Act and escalated into boycotts, which culminated in 1773 with the Sons of Liberty destroying a shipment of tea in Boston Harbor. Britain responded by closing Boston Harbor and passing a series of punitive measures against Massachusetts Bay Colony. Massachusetts colonists responded with the Suffolk Resolves, and they established a shadow government which wrested control of the countryside from the Crown. Twelve colonies formed a Continental Congress (with the exception of Georgia) to coordinate their resistance, establishing committees and conventions that effectively seized power.

Current Event #1 Tax Reform must be bipartisan In the wake of the failed attempt by this Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the president and congressional leadership have signaled that the next big effort will be to reform the tax code. And while Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin may say that tax reform is much easier, all evidence points to the contrary. It's been more than 30 years since the last major overhaul of the tax code. Almost all tax legislation in that period of time has either added loopholes and complications to the code or simply handed out tax breaks without any clear plan to make up the lost revenue save for the magic of economic growth. Meanwhile, the national debt has ballooned from $2.1 trillion to nearly $20 trillion. Just as they tried to do with health care, congressional leadership is prepared, if not planning, to pass tax reform through a process called budget reconciliation. There are three basic congressional powers Senators were alarmed by a Trump administration presentation Wednesday at the white house about the dangers of North Korea. Through lawmakers of both parties said its unclear what the president's next act against the combative nation will be Congress appears to be headed toward some kind of deal to keep the government from shutting down at the end of the week Lawmakers in both parties said they did not want to discuss the details of an emerging plan to keep the government running, which generally is a sign that they are making genuine progress. President Donald Trump initially demanded that a border wall be funded in the spending bill - an idea heartily opposed not just by Democrats, but by many Republicans in border states and districts – but then dropped the demand Checks and Balances Congressional Powers Congressional Oversight General powers: power over financial and budgetary matters Enumerated powers: to tax and spend the money raised by taxes provide for nation's defense and general welfare Implied powers: Power to regulate interstate commerce The British Parliament had consisted of two houses since the 1300s The framers had to create a two-chambered body to settle the conflict between the Virginia and new jersey plans All in all the framers favored a bicameral system because if need be one house could check on the other Why a Bicameral Legislation?

PICTURES PICTURES Photo 1 Photo 2 Research Question Point Of View How did the Chinese and Americans govt react to the situation? The chinese Govt( the emperor) liked the exclusions as he was worried that the United States would take all the chinese laborers and no one would be left in China to work for him. China's Point of View TITLE Many states were against the new laws , since they required the tax revenue and cheap labour . The main state that supported the chinese was California, as during this me so much labor was needed, and chinese were great as they were low wage workers. Several different laws were made and then taken down, and Ultimately the Execution act came to pass, in 1882. United States point of View TITLE Many nations treat their foreigners with low regard and respect, and this can lead to the native born population treating immigrants like inferior manner.
