Transcript of America

Here we go, away from Spain.

We adventured deep into the trees, it was quiet, then, out of the corner of my eye I saw someone. They were looking at me. Then she ran away. I went the way she did and it led me to a village type of thing. It was amazing, there were so many people and they were all carrying something. They all stopped and looked at me, but then they went back to what they were doing. I saw the girl that I had seen in the trees. She was the only person still looking at me. I went up too her, but instead she walked up to me and handed me every kind of food except, tomato soup! I am glad I saw her.
The next day I went to exploring again, and I went back to the village thing, the girl seemed to be waiting for me, I talked to her and she said her name was Malaya. We played ball with the other kids, my team won. There wasn't ant grass, instead there was gravel and dirt. There was a huge waterfall in the village, so Malaya took me there. It was amazing! The biggest waterfall I had ever seen!
Cultural Exchange.
History of America

The year is 1519 and we are heading a away from Spain sailing to new land. The boat is swaying and the waves are crashing and cold water is splashing at my face. The wind is blowing wildly making my hair wild.The seagulls are flying overhead and whales are swimming beside the boat. The sun is hiding behind the clouds and it is chilly. The Atlantic Oceans water is 20 degrees. The sun popped out and a sudden heat warmed us up right away. It is dinner and so we sat eating tomato soup, its not the best soup but its almost all we have. It is time to rest for we have a busy journey ahead.
We just arrived and the first thing I did was explored. I went to the right and there was a river. I took off my shoes and dipped them into the water. It was cold but it felt good, so I jumped in. It was the first thing even close to a bath in weeks. I dried off and went further past the river. There was a strong sent of skunk so I turned and ran the other way past the river. I stopped after a few minutes to catch my breath and when I looked up I saw a bird looking at me. It just starred, I tried to scare it away but it didn't even blink! I stomped back to our camp and ate tomato soup. Then the day was over and I had a nightmare about that bird.

Now, up north, pilgrims arrive on the Mayflower. Winter was near and the were far from the Houston River. Plus someone decided to take the Mayflower back to England so the pilgrims were left to survive with no way home. By the first winter, half of the pilgrims were dead. Houses were very small and had limited space. The roof was thatched, made of reeds and the walls were packed with clay dug from the ground. The men get the pewter plate and pewter spoon but the woman and children get wooden spoons or spoons made of cow horns, and plates called trenchers. The children sleep on one mattress of straw or feather that lay on the floor while the parents sleep with both mattresses on a bedstead. The pilgrims eat smashed corn with every meal. When the pilgrims were on the Mayflower, they mainly ate dried meat, fish, grains, flour, dried fruit, cheese, hard biscuits, and other food that they brought. When they got settled is Plymouth theyy ate deer, swan, lobster, bread, indian corn, rabbit, turkey, geese, duck. They brought sugar, spices, oil, vinegar, and wine. The children drank beer instead of milk. The woman tended to small gardens of herbs and veggies in their back yard while men usually tend to the crops in big open fields. In the fields they grew indian corn and in the small gardens they grew barley, peas, onions, spinach, pumpkins, cabbage, radishes, and many other veggies. The men use beetles, thwart saws, and fro's (froe's) to build houses. The bruoght the iron heads with them bu made the handles out of wood in Plymouth. Their kitchen was the fireplace with a kettle hung over it. Sometimes you would find chairs hanging on the wall, that is because the space is limited, but the wall has space so they hung their belongings on the wall. The hearth is the fire which is their kitchen. They hang the pot over the hearth, they hang it closer to the hearth to make it hotter or boil faster, and hang it farther up to have it not boild so fast.

I have to leave England because my brother and I are orphans and we were stealing from pockets. My brother Tom never made it onto the boat. We did make it to Plymouth and back to England. There was a storm and everyone was praying and one of the main beams broke so we used a medal screw. It saved us, so kids were coughing and we were sleeping on cold, wet beds. Most people wanted to turn back, but we kept going. The food is moldy and bad. Captain John went up from the tween deck and then we heard shouting "Man overboard!" was what we heard. A baby was born healthy named Oceanus. We only have moldy sea fish. I was longing for milk, I wish we brought a dairy cow. A man died of scurvy so we covered him and through him overboard. The captain told us to come up on the deck to excersise.

could remember the creeks and the grass. We've been on they Mayflower for weeks. So many have died from fever and diseases by the first winter. We sat down to eat dinner when we herd a cry. The next day an indian came into the village, his name was Squanto. We all became friends with Squanto and some of his tribe members. We started planting gardens. I went to gather plants and berries when I heard laughing. I went towered the noise and I saw children splashing in the water, but they were native children. Squanto came up to me and said for me to come into their village. I got to meet his family. The men went exploring with the natives and when they came back successful we had a feast and a celebration that lasted three days.

While Spain and England were building in
North America, France was claiming land in what are today Canada and northeastern United States. French claims to this region, which became known as New France, began with Jacques Cartier. He explored the St. Lawrence River in the early 1500s. He also started trading partnership with Huron people. French merchants wanted the wealth that came from the fur trade. The French king wanted to add to his country's power. He pushed merchants to start colonies in North America. In time, a group of merchants hired Samuel de Champlain to find a place to build a settlement. In 1608, Champlain founded Quebec along the St. Lawrence River. Quebec was the first French settlement in North American. In 1603, French Catholic missionaries began arriving in New France. These missionaries usually lived with Natives to learn their language.

New England colonies were formed in
Massachusetts, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode
Island, Vermont, Connecticut, New Hampshire.
The Puritans arrived in Chesapeake Bay. They arrived in 1628 and 1630. They came to America because they wanted to be able to practice their own religious beliefs.

Benjamin Franklin was about to speak against the tax law in 1776. The colonist were angry. They said that Britain could not tax them. 1765 was the Stamp Act, which put a tax on many paper items in the colonies. Everyone was angry with the taxes. Many colonist tried to force Britain to take back the Stamp Act. Some wrote letters to Parliament. Others began to boycott, or refuse to buy, all

British goods. The colonist were ready to fight for their country. They grabbed their musket and were going to the British. The minutemen came from nearby villages. The group of men waited in concord. When the British saw them, they retreated, but a lot of the men were killed of wounded.In the middle of the night and there was war ships of the British.
After war, they had slaves. Some people wanted to have slaves, but some didn't. They would say that in the Decoration of Independence said that everyone should have liberty. Slaves weren't supposed to to be able to read or write. Slaves aren't supposed to be able to love, or do anything fun or exciting. Singing was important part of african americans religion, but some masters do not allow them to sing.
1787, the 55 delegates from 12 states gathered in the Pennsylvania State House. debated for 4 months. The farmers were mad because they felt over taxed. They were armed with pitchforks and guns and they destroyed the big house. There are 3 branches of power;
Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.

We are approaching the new land so there is a lookout all the time. There was 80 fathoms till the bottom. We were getting closer and the deck was crowded. The people worn damp blankets over there heads. The next day we heard "Land ho!" Every one was talking at once and seaguls flew all around our ship. I got to walk the new land with 16 other people. First we took the longboat but we didn't get to land. We decided to adventure into the land, and we found trees, lots of trees. We worked hard that evning cutting trees. That night we went back on the ship and we made a fire, we acually got to eat real food. Another day on land. I got to wear clean clothes, because all the woman went to shore to scrub the clothes. A school of whales were playing beside the Mayflower and one man tried to shoot at them but the gun just blew up in his face. We set up camp and went into the tree's again and found fresh water! We drank it and went into an opening. We started digging and I found an indian arrow. We left and we went over a hill and there was fresh made sand. We found a basket full of corn. We took most of it with us. We found two canous and we new this land was occupied. I heard a cry from the forest, I awoke from it twice. The other men was aware too. Our fire burned so we could see a little through the darkness. We came back to Mayflower in cold rain. We came to a bent tree so we huddled by it. One of the men stepped right into it(a trap). He said that he was impressed. Finally we came to the beach again. Everyone was glad to see us. It was cold because it is December. We found indians working on a black thing. When they saw us they ran. We figured out that the black thing is a grampus. We were sitting and planning out our day when we heard a terrible cry. They came from all sides and it echo. Before we knew it there was natives coming from the trees all painted and had feathers. The captain shot but missed and all natives fled. A few men went into the forest with captain and we heard shouts and gun fire.We went into the shallop. It was windy and we couldnt hear each other. When we got to and it was dark so we made fire and fell asleep. In the morning we found out that we were on an island. We named it Carter island. When we got back to the Mayflower we found out that captains wife had drowned. The next day we told everyone about Plymouth Harbor. It is Christmas and it was cold but men made houses on the east coast. We went on board and didn't go to ashore because there was a storm. We had to make 19 houses. We worked on the common house, everyone worked including women. Captain took some men to find the Natives but came back with an eagle that they shot. I think our common house was getting better and I slept in it with other men. Many on board are sickly and the cook complains about a fever and headaches. In the common house there is a sickness going around. All that do work watch the sickness. I had to fetch wood and watch the fire. At night I see the shadows from the people who care for the sick. A few men went to get water and saw many native and came running. Today we saw two natives and they were making signs for us to come with them but captain wouldn't allow us to go to them. I visit Elder Bradford in the common house. We brought a small cannon 1200 pounds. Another person died and diseases have wiped out her family. There are many orphans now. My master invited me to eat with him so I grabbed my own plate and ate with him. It has been four months since we came and most of the people are still on board. I asked my master if he could teach me how to use a musket so he showed me in many steps how to get it started. I help him plant seeds in the garden. Natives come asking for food and strong water they come at every hour even in the middle of the night. Some people come onto the land. We left to tell the natives that they shouldn't come at night and Squanto came with us back.The Mayflower is going back home with some people, but I stay. I had to give my journal, but my master gave me another. The Mayflower left and many cried. It is strange not seeing the ship on the harbor. All the orphans were adopted into families and one came to mine. She was nice and made us laugh. We started planting in the gardens and planting crops. My master may become Governor. A new indian came to live with us. We are finished gardening but we still need to gaured the crops and tend to the garden. Some indians came to trade. We have had many deaths and one marriage. We have 11 houses, we have 4 buildings. I need to guard the common field from wolves. Two boys came and teased me, then one kicked half a row of a field. The next day a girl came and told me that the two boys are going to duel. I was going to get up early and see if they were going to really do it. They went to the beach with a sword and a knife. The boys said that I was going to pay so I left late that night. I am so tired but then I saw the common house. I went to Mrs. Hopkins house and I got a loaf of bread. I have a compass and I know where I want to go. I traveled through the forest all day. I saw two fox, a deer, and three snakes. I was trying to find the Sowagas so I could live there. The sun was going down and I ventured out of the trees to see calm water. I made a fire. I heard the wolves. I write in my journal and my legs ached and I was dizzy, but I still wrote. I saw eyes watching me and I knew that if I kept the fire going the wolves would stay away. I wish I was in my small bead. I woke and saw the blue sky. I walked all morning along grass and the creek, I saw birds that I had never seen. I was hungry but I had know bread so I went into the forest to find berries and I found some good ones, but then I realized that the berries were far in the forest. I woke in a hut and I felt pain in my leg. I go unconscious and then I woke again to be found over a mans shoulder, I went unconscious and I woke still on the boys and I was in a viliage. The boy put me down and introduced himself and told me he learned my language by Squanto. I told him about the wolves and he said that he protected me. I thanked him, and looked around for some one else thank, but every one was gone. I was hungry and he brought me a bowl, it had a meat in it. He told me to rest. The next day I met more people and went a little into the forest. All around people were working and children were playing. The children came up to me and started saying something in their language. We went fishing and I took off my shirt. He told me that they pray to all living things.
To lead this expedition, Thomas Jefferson chose Meriwether Lewis, and he chose William Clark. In 1803, they bought the whole Louisiana Purchase. They brought a man named York, known to Clark since birth. Only two days out, Lewis almost lost his life. They were tormented by misquotes. Some days, they only made two miles with thousands more to go. They found the Natives, we traded with them and got watermelons. Then Sargent Floyd passed away. They pushed on deeper inland. In the vast prairie land, they found many new species. They found buffalo, but where buffalo were, there were buffalo hunters. They were ordered to be peaceful with them. Sacajawea joined them on them on their expedition, soon she had a baby boy. She soon became more important to the expedition, she showed them edible plants and saved some of their valuable items.
Traveling was very hard. Sometimes, someone would fall off the wagon or eat poison food and get sick. They would run out of food and starve or get cold and not have enough cloths. Your oxen would get sick and die of get thirsty and dehydrated. Your wheels would break. But sometimes, you could successfully trade with other travelers.

When mining for gold, it worked for me to pick a person who has mining experience, mining tools, and health. I found out that you could die from other miners beating you up of if you open a theater you die. I found more gold by the river that the foothills. Today we can discuss the Erie canal. Peter Cooper built the first locomotive, toms thumb.
World War 1
World War 2
600,000 jeeps were made.
In 1920, a German World War 1 veteran named Adolf Hilter became leader of a politcial party called the National Socialists.The Nazi party grew in power. In 1933, the Nazi party took control of Germany. In 1922, Benito Joseph Stalin took control of the Soveit Union.
In 1914, ongoing conflics in Eroupe
exploded into war. This war became
know as World War 1. Most Americans
did not think the US would get involved
in war. In 1915, a German submarine sank
the British ship Lustania. About 1,200
people drowned, including 128 Americans.

Both were caused by
the efforts of other
country's to change
the US's ways. They were
both won by the side with
more weapons. The insergent
wars both lost.
In the late 1950's, communist in South Vietnam attacked the government. In 1964, it looked as if the Vietcong were winning. By 1968, there were more than 500,00 American soldiers fighting in Vietnam.
The teleagraph helped Abraham Lincon win the war.
There are more TVs are in this nation than anywhere in the world. 1970, thousands of vietnom war protests broke out. In 1972, Nixon flew to Moscow to meet with the Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev. The two leaders worked on contronled arms, or limited numbers of how many weapons each nation can have, they wanted to make peace. In 1889, most American's have credit cards.
