Slave codes were laws in each U.S. state, which defined the status of slaves and the rights of masters. These codes gave slave-owners absolute power over the enslaved
In a charter colony, the King granted a charter to the colonial government establishing the rules under which the colony was to be governed.
A proprietary colony was a colony in which one or two Individuals, usually land owners, remaining subject to their parent state's sanctions, retained rights that are today regarded as the privilege of the state,
a colony ruled or administered by officials appointed by and responsible to the reigning sovereign of the parent state.
Farmers that lived in the Northern colonies learned how to subsistence farm. Subsistence farming produce just enough food to meet immediate needs. Fish was also a main food source.
The 13 colonies were established on the eastern coast of the United States. The 13 colonies were divided into three regions which included Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Georgia. Each of these colonies were established for different reasons.
Hutterites are religious, communal

the state of being diverse; variety.
the state of being diverse; variety.
a multilateral system of trading in which a country pays for its imports from one country by its exports to another
lesson 2 (question 11)
Critics of Slavery
Farming and Cash Crops
The middle colonies were mainly farmers. They grew large quantities of cash crops. Cash crops are crop that can be sold easily to gain money. The main cash crop varies with where people lived. Some places main cash crop was wheat, corn and rice. In Maryland and Virginia the main cash crop was tobacco. Farmers would send wheat and livestock as shipment to New York City and Philadelphia.
Slavery is a system under which people are treated as property. Often slaves can be bought and sold. Slaves can be held from the time of their capture, purchase or birth, and deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to demand compensation
Bill Of Rights
What were they?
After time had passed the demand for workers was high. It became extremely hard to plant, tend, and harvest the crops alone. White landowners ended up using enslaved Africans to help with their harvests and planting. Years later, shiploads of human cargo arrived in North America. It was also a way they could get out of jail faster. If they worked for the landowners for usually about 7 years, they could be freed early.
Amendment 1: Freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly; the right to petition the government.
Amendment 2: Right to bear arms and maintain state militias (National Guard).
Amendment 3: Troops may not be quartered in homes in peacetime.
Amendment 4: No unreasonable searches or seizures.
Amendment 5: Grand Jury indictment required to prosecute a person for a serious crime. No "double jeopardy" -- being tried twice for the same offense. Forcing a person to testify against himself or herself prohibited. No loss of life, liberty or property without due process.
Amendment 6: Right to speedy, public, impartial trial with defense counsel, and right to cross-examine witnesses.
Amendment 7: Jury trials in civil suits where value exceeds 20 dollars.
Amendment 8: No excessive bail or fines, no cruel and unusual punishments.
Amendment 9: Unlisted rights are not necessarily denied.
Amendment 10: Powers not delegated to the United States or denied to states are reserved to the states or to the people.
The mercantilism is a theory of how nations build wealth. to build wealth and power, nations must export more goods to sell than imports?
distinguish import and export.
bring (goods or services) into a country from abroad for sale
send (goods or services) to another country for sale
The enslaved Africans were torn apart often because slaveholders would sell a spouse, parent, or child. An African American is a person whose roots/ancestors are in Africa but they live in America. Some of the enslaved africans learned skills such as blacksmithing and/or weaving. If they were lucky enough they could buy their freedom and join the African Americans.
What was life like for people living in colonies.
The roles of individual members of the family differed between wealthy and poorer families. In poor and rural households, the family unit as a whole was more responsible for the daily operation of the family's household and business than in wealthier households where the business of the family was entrusted to the father and daily household chores were relegated to servants.
AFTER the colonists had relocated to the new world, and become familiar with their new surroundings, they began to discover the fallacy of most of their first notions and to adjust themselves to the new problems as best they could. The day when the settlement of a new world could be regarded as an experiment with possible fabulous results was over.

What does it mean by freedom of speech? What amendment is that?
because the each of them wanted more control over America than they had

we are going to go into a massive debt and the u.s may or may not go bankrupt. Riots will break out and the whole u.s will be a catastrophe.
Native American day because the native american were here first so they technically founded america.
You are allowed to say your own opinion of something.
The two principles of government influenced the development of the United States greatly. Protective rights and representative legislatures are the two principles. They were also important parts to the U.S. Constitution.
lesson 4 (question 3)
Revolutions took place as more and more local people sought for control. A revolution is an overthrow of the government that has been forced.
In the beginning colonists liked it because they had a place to ship their raw materials too but since their population was growing they wanted to make their own goods instead of importing them from England. Colonists began shipping goods in secret and got away without
or government permission. This eventually caused tension/conflict between American colonies and England.
The elder William Pitt, later the first Earl of Chatham, was the driving force behind the British victory in the Seven Years War, known as the French and Indian War in North America.
Lesson 4 (question 6)
How did the British plan to pay for their large war debt created during the French Indian War?
The British thought the colonists should help pay for the rest of the cost of their own protection.
In colonies, the Enlightenment increased interest in science. It also promoted the freedom of thought and expression. Many colonists were inspired by the Enlightenment.
Also because the government owns most of the schools and businesses, and we can pick our religion so that is also why we cant.
Education played a big role in the values of colonists. At home, parents would teach their children to read and write. Having a family was a value as well. Some people started schools so people could read and study the Bible. Most schools in the middle colonies were private. Religion was also a high value.
The Native Americans sided with the French for many reasons. One of them being that they traded fur with them; the French didn't want to share/trade with the British. French trappers ended up marrying the Native American women. They had also claimed the Ohio River valley as theirs and had more land.
The proclamation helped with conflict with the Native Americans. It kept the colonists on the coast; the British could control them. Some colonists thought The Proclamation limited their freedom of movement. They thought the British would interfere with their independence.
Native American Day because Columbus wasn't the one that was in America first. Native Americans were here first so the day should be named after them.
I think Native American Day because they were here first, so they deserve to be celebrated instead of Columbus Day.
lesson 2(question 14)
Lesson 2(question 8)
Lesson 2 (question 2)
The saying: “There are only two known things in life: death and taxes." means the only two things that are certain in life are taxes and death. If you're alive you can be sure you'll always pay taxes; at the end of life you can be sure that you'll be dead. It's almost the only two things you can't get out of in life.
What caused the Revolutionary War?
TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION
A slogan of the Revolutionary War and the years before. The colonists were not allowed to choose representatives to parliament in London, which passed the laws under which they were taxed. To be taxed only with the consent of one's representatives.
The American people were strongly independent. They wanted to do things for themselves. Great Britain was a long way away. The American people didn't want people an ocean away telling them how to live their lives.
“There are only two known things in life: death and taxes."

Why Did the British Tax the Colonists?
A boycott is when you or a group refuse to take part in something. The colonists didn't buy British and European goods because the taxes were extremely high.
Because it was getting expensive to run a colony all the way across the ocean, so they taxed the colonists so they could get money. They also needed money for all the other government things they could do.
A propaganda is used to promote political point of views.
What are some ways that tax payers money is being wasted.
Government overpays for products and services
any government system that provides monetary assistance to people with an inadequate or no income. If you retire at 67 than you get 100%of the benefits. If your retire at 66 than you get 80%of the benefits.

Improper Food Stamp Payments
What are the taxes British imposed on the American colonies?
Molasses Act ( molasses, rum,and sugar according to amount)
Sugar Act (wine according to amount,sugar, and textiles)
Stamp Act (paper. newspapers, and official documents like licenses and wills)
Town shend Act (glass,lead,paper,and tea)
Tea Act (can only get tea from West India Company tax on this tea was actually cheaper than other teas)
I would pay $10,450 because every thousand acre is 2.09. Multiply it by 5000 and you get $10,450.
Boston Tea Party
Lexington and Concord
A militia is a military force. A minuteman is the soldier in the militia that volunteered to be ready at a minutes notice. Lexington and Concord was one of the first battles in the Revolutionary War. The British heard the Patriots were storing powder and weapons in Lexington and Concord.
Giving weapons to other countries
The Tea Party evolved when the colonists were tired of paying taxes on tea, stamps, etc. They dressed up like indians in order to disguise themselves and threw tea over the ship.
• Local real property taxes in South Dakota vary from 1 to 4 percent of the actual value of the structure. $1,290
What propaganda did Paul Revere spread?
BRITISH COERCIVE ACTS
Upset by the Boston Tea Party and other blatant acts of destruction of British property by American colonists, the British Parliament enacts the Coercive Acts, to the outrage of American Patriots, on this day in 1774. The Coercive Acts were a series of four acts established by the British government. The aim of the legislation was to restore order in Massachusetts and punish Bostonians for their Tea Party, in which members of the revolutionary-minded Sons of Liberty boarded three British tea ships in Boston Harbor and dumped 342 crates of tea—nearly $1 million worth in today's money—into the water to protest the Tea Act.
1. They closed the boston harbor until all the tea was piada for.
2. Any British official convictred of murder was to be tried in britain

When Nathan was captured by the British his last speech was: "I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country."
The British offered blacks their freedom in return for their aid in fighting the Americans.
Blacks took up the offer not because they were fighting for the British but because they were fighting for their freedom.

WHAT DOES REPUBLIC MEAN?
Give the history of the ‘Pledge of Allegiance’.
What were the weaknesses of Articles of Confederation?
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892. Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country.
In its original form it read:
"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In 1923, the words, "the Flag of the United States of America" were added. At this time it read:
"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
- It didn't propose a way to add new states to the United States.
- The Articles of Confederation limited powers.

- The new central government has no chief executive.
- All the states had to approve
Land Act of 1800
sovereignty: a country's independent authority and the right to govern itself
freedom: the quality or state of being free
independence: : the time when a country or region gains political freedom from outside control
The Constitution assigned to Congress responsibility for organizing the executive and judicial branches, raising revenue, declaring war, and making all laws necessary for executing these powers. The president is permitted to veto specific legislative acts, but Congress has the authority to override presidential vetoes by two-thirds majorities of both houses. The Constitution also provides that the Senate advise and consent on key executive and judicial appointments and on the ratification of treaties.
What is meant by each state retained ‘its sovereignty, freedom, and independence”? What initial powers did the Congress have? What couldn’t they do?
- Made it easier to buy land
- People were required to buy at least 320 acres of land at $2 per acre
- The buyer could pay half of the money at the time of purchase and the rest in four yearly payments.
What was slavery like in the New Republic?
- Though 1776 and 1786, 11 states except Georgia and South Carolina outlawed or taxed the importation of enslaved people.
- In the North slavery was not a major source of labor
- People began trying to end slavery.
- Pennsylvania passed a law to gradually free slaves.
- Still African Americans faced difficulties because of their skin.
- Slavery continued to spread South of Pennsylvania.
The Framers of the Constitution used three sources to help draft it. Explain the key components of John Locke and Montesquieu believed in that was used in drafting the Constitution.
-John Locke wrote that all people have natural rights. These rights include the rights to life, liberty and property.
- He also wrote that government is based on an agreement, or contract between the people and the ruler.
- Montesquieu declared that the powers of government should be separated and balanced against each other.
Explain in detail how the Electoral Collage works. How are the delegates decided? How many votes are needed to become President? What is it meant by the 'popular vote'?
-The Electoral College elects the president and vice president.
- Voters in each state choose the electors who make up the Electoral College.
- It depends on your population for how any electoral votes you have. It takes 270 electoral votes. S.D = 3 votes
- The popular vote is the vote for a U.S. presidential candidate made by the qualified voters, as opposed to that made by the electoral college.
- 2 senators per state (Mike Rounds and John Thune)
Insert an image of the Northwest Territory. Describe the process that allowed states to join the union. What did the Northwest Ordinance say about slavery?

7. Describe the ‘Ordinance of 1785’. What is a township? Section? Acre? How much did an acre cost?
What problems did the government face under the Articles of Confederation?
The first problem was that the new goverment could not settle disputes between states. The second problem was that foreign countries did not respect the nation. And the third was that the new goverment could not raise enough money.
What was Shay’s Rebellion about?
A violent insurrection in the Massachusetts countryside during 1786 and 1787, Shays' Rebellion was brought about by a monetary debt crisis at the end of the American Revolutionary War.
14-7 What compromises were reached in the new Constitution?
After still more deeply divided argument, a proposal put forward by delegates from Connecticut struck a compromise that narrowly got approved. They suggested that representatives in each house of the proposed bicameral legislature be selected through different means.
16-7 What is federalism? What are examples of today’s federalism programs?
the federal principle or system of government
Congress appropriates these grants to states for a specific purpose. Funds are allocated by a precise formula with detailed conditions imposed by the national government. Often states must contribute money to match federal funds, but categorical grants almost always come with a great many "strings" that demonstrate the "supremacy" of the national government.
Because congress did not have the power to tax, they had to find ways to raise money so they sold LAND. A township was a division of a county with some corporate powers; it is 6 miles by 6 miles. A section of land is 640 acres or 1 sq. Mile. An acre is 10,000 sq. meters or a hectare. The minimum of an acre was 1 dollar.
Money couldn’t buy much federal debt: couldn’t pay soldiers, still couldn’t tax: tried to import tax, failed: poor relations with Britain: poor relations with Spain, closed part of Mississippi.
outlawed slavery in the Northwest Territory. The Northwest Ordinance had a bill of rights for the settlers in the territory. It guaranteed freedom of religion and trial by jury. It also stated, "There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in said territory."
The South wanted war
Describe the problems at ‘home and abroad’. (In what ways was the Confederate government weak?)
This Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches without a warrant.
19. Not all agree with the Federalism concept, why? What is the Bill of Rights? What does ratified mean?
antfeds-wanted a spread out, decentralized gov because they feared that a centralized one would revert back to monarchy like in england.
The Bill of Rights is the collective name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. Proposed to assuage the fears of Anti-Federalists who had opposed Constitutional ratification, these amendments guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government's power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public.
Ratification is a principal's approval of an act of its agent where the agent lacked authority to legally bind the principal. The term applies to private contract law, international treaties, and constitutions in federations such as the United States and Canada.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted
Legislative- makes the laws
Executive- carries out the laws
Judicial- evaluates laws
17. The first THREE articles of the Constitution established the three branches of government. Explain the functions of each branch.
a. Virginia Plan
Stronger national government, outline for the US constitution, consists of three branches, legislative: tax, regulate trade and veto state laws, Chief executive: (president) execute laws, court system: interpret the laws
b. New Jersey Plan
Three branches: Legislative-one house, executive, judicial branch
Ratified-sign or give formal consent to (a treaty, contract, or agreement) making it officially valid

The Constitution contains a system of
checks and balances
. This means each branch of government has ways to check, or limit, the power of the other branches.
- centers for Disease Control- The CDC focuses national attention on developing and applying disease control and prevention.
- Environmental Protection Agency- protecting human health and the environment by writing and enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress.
Department of Health and Human Services- Has the goal of protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services.

We fired our guns an' the British kept a'comin'.
There wasn't nigh as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more an' they begin to runnin'
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
We looked down the river an' we seed the British comin',
There must a'been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum.
They stepped so high an' they made their bugles ring,
We stood beside our cotton bales an'didn't say a thing.
Ole Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise,
If we didn't fire our muskets 'til we looked 'em in the eyes.
We held our fire 'til we seed their faces well,
Then we opened up our squirrel guns an' really gave 'em ...well!
Yeah, they ran through the briars an' they ran through the brambles
An' they ran through the bushes where the rabbits couldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down,
So we grabbed an alligator an' we fought another round.
We filled his head with cannon balls an' powdered his behind,
An' when they touched the powder off, the 'gator lost his mind.
