14: The First Amendment | The first amendment states that all people in the United states have the freedom to exercise any religion, speech, press,assembly, or petition. In the early days of America, many people came over from Britain for the ability to be able to practice any religion they wished without being discriminated for it. Back in Britain, if some one went by a different religion other than said by the king, they could be thrown in jail. Here it did not matter what religion you practiced because you had the freedom to do what you wished as abiding by the constitution. The British also left Britain so they could say whatever they wanted without having to worry about the king giving them any orders or telling them they can't do something. Most of all, the people loved

15: having the freedom in America that they did not have in Britain. This amendment is one of the most important amendments in out Bill of Rights. I think this amendment was added to our constitution because it gave everyone the right to live their lives without anyone forcing them to act otherwise.
