http://www.brainpop.com/socialstudies/ushistory/americanrevolution/ http://www.brainpop.com/socialstudies/ushistory/declarationofindependence/ The history of the United States starts with the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The British government's threat to American self-government led to war in 1775 and the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The young nation continued to struggle with the scope of central government and with European influence, creating the first political parties in the 1790s, and fighting a second war for independence in 1812. With major military and financial support from France, the patriots won the American Revolution. In 1789 the Constitution became the basis for the United States federal government, with war hero George Washington as the first president. Revolution Vocab.

Three weeks after the Lexiton and Concord battle a second Continental Congress formed in Philadelphia When discussing important matter at the meeting, they decided to ask King George the 3rd not to take wrong action against them However the king said no and at that same time the congress was building up a continental army When this battle started it was lead by our brave solider George Washington GA wasn't there for the war, and the other colonies got mad so they finally joined The Georgia Provincial Congress issued a series
of guidelines, called "Rules and Regulations", which
were to be used in governing Georgia until a more
permanent document could be drawn up. After the revolutionary war, the former colonies were tired of being governed and living under laws of Great Britain, which they felt was both out of touch and too far away to understand their needs. so when comingto a end of the war, they decided to make the Declaration of Independence. Writing the new constitution was not easy. Some
citizens wanted a government like the one already in
place, with alot of power in the hands of a few wealthy
landowners; but the whigs wanted to give all the people
of Georgia a chance to govern themselves and they won. http://www.brainpop.com/socialstudies/ushistory/undergroundrailroad/ the Antebellum period was a time period before the civil war. it was basically the reason for the civil war when the coutry was complete done with the revoultionary war it called for improvment in the country. so they decided to take over te rest of the country they need to take over Texas, California, And the Oregon Territory http://www.brainpop.com/socialstudies/ushistory/mexicanamericanwar/zoom.weml the claiming of countries after the mexican territory were taken by the States or US it soon began the gold rush which gave othe opprotinuty for money STATE RIGHTS Georgia was formed in 1732 as a trustee colony and was named for George II, but became a royal colony in 1752. The colony originally prohibited slavery, a prohibition which lasted until 1749. Afterward, slavery grew in the colony, with many slaves coming from Sierra Leone, the Gambia, and Angola. The history of the state is formed by its original Native American inhabitants, European exploration and settlement, specifically British colonization, the American Revolution, the American Civil War and Reconstruction. However it toke a more harder turn for Georgia after the Revoultionary War when the war it showed the Georgia'sGovernment was not in shape the war ruined the ecomony and divided up people in Georgia during the war there was very limited supplies of food becuase the farmers had to go to war soon after the new Government had to make sure that there was nolimited food for their people so in return they made sure that the farmers that went to war were supplied with food and more land during that time period Georgia's capitial switch from Savannah to Augusta and in 1788 and 1789 delegates final came to Georgia to fix its Consititution after the changes, Georgia's Consitution was very much like the national one they made sure that it had seperation of power
the state three branches
legislature however even though they had seperated power it wasn't equally northern's veiw was that they needed political decisions to make a better country state rights was the belief that each individual state had their own set of rules from the national one the southren's view was that they believed deeply in state rights the missouri compromise the missouri compromise was when missouri came a slave state which then made Maine enter the union states as a free state and made Missouri a slave state the Dred Scott Decision a slave named Dred Scott filled a lawsuit since his owner toke him to a free state so abolitionist raised money for him to go to court but they couldn't because he was a slave and slaves weren't citizns and they couldn't mess with slavery in the states so this then divided the south and the north even more The Compromise of 1850 the compromise was a law passed by congress saying that CA was to turn into a free slave state trading was over with in the District of Columbia Texas gave up on New Mexico for money which then gave the choice for Utah and New Mexico the power to be either a free state of a slave state Kansas-Nebraska Act the act created the state of Kansas and Nebraska into popular sovereignty popular sovereignty is when a territory is ask for statehood and the citizens vote on either on being a free state or a slave state however the north was mad because it change the Missouri Compromise Slavery Spiritual songs were an inportant part
of slave life. Slaves sang songs at church,
home, and work. Education was almost nonexistent
for most slaves. It was against the law
for a slave owner to teach any slave to
read or write When slaves left their plantation,
they had either go with their owner,
or if elsewhere they had to have a pass Slave codes took away nearly all the rights to a
slve. They show disrespect to a white person,
testify against them, make any type of contact,
hit a white, or carry a weapon however slaves had there own way to their freedom Underground Railroad After all the division between the North and South IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE Before the election of 1860 came around, they decided to make a new party which was called the Republicain Party so when it came to the election a new person named Abraham Lincoln came and got everyones vote in the county basically when the election THE END TIME FOR WANT TO BE A MILLIONIARE after his election a good future waited ahead for Georgia
