8: A New Beginning!

9: A New Beginning!

10: "The battle, Sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, Sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable; and let it come! I repeat, Sir, let it come!“ Quote from: Patrick Henry April 1775: An army that consisted of around 700 of England's battle hardened and rough war veterans set off from Boston on a 20 mile march to Lexington and Concord. Headed by the renowned General Thomas Gage, the army set off to seize many weapons and supplies from the Continental Army that had been stored there. Sadly for the British, the supplies had been moved secretly. The redcoats burned things instead to make their trip worth while. As the lobsterbacks started to make the journey back to Boston, the Minutemen fired upon them, chasing them all the way back to Boston. On December 1773, a group of rebels, including John Hancock, clambered up onto 3 West Indie tea ships and dumped millions of today’s money worth of tea into the Boston Harbor. This was one of the most infamous events in the revolutionary war. The British punished the state of Massachusetts by limiting them to only one meeting per year, taxes, and some acts on the citizens.

11: Americans attacked England at the British fort Ticonderoga, New York. This would be a sort of turning point in the war as Vermonter Ethan Allen caught the British off guard and took over the Fort that looked over a lake. America could now transport goods much easier; also as a huge bonus the fort had lots of cannons which were put to use later. Barely after 9:00, a group of young men walked up to a lone soldier and prompted the soldier to have an argument and started what would be soon called a snowball fight. The lone soldier then called for his captain who brought about 9 more soldiers with muskets. The captain told the soldiers not to fire but instead they fired in self defense. After the fight there were 3 dead and more wounded. All the soldiers and the captain went on trial for murder although only two soldiers got the death penalty. In December, General Burgoyne marched up to Albany with 7200 men that were the best trained England had ever sent out to war. The battle of Saratoga was by far the main turning point in the war. With about 900 either killed, wounded, or POWs, this was a slap in the face to Britain and said that we Americans meant business. Casualties: British: Americans Force: 7200 Force: 9000 Killed: 140 Killed: 60 Wounded: 370 Wounded: 260 Captured: 390 Captured: 0

12: The Articles of Confederation was a document that first came out after our independence and was an agreement among all 13 states and served as our first constitution. Like most first drafts, there were strengths but also some very bad liabilities. Strengths included that the new National Government was allowed to declare war, borrow money, able to deal with foreign countries and sign treaties, and to operate post offices. Although, liabilities are that they couldn't compel the states to obey its laws, couldn't enforce its laws, couldn't tax, there was no national armed force, states could issue their own paper money, and states could even put tariffs on goods between states. | But then.... | The document that sucked...

13: Stars 'n' Stripes Forever | The US Constitution! | After completely ditching the Articles of Confederation, we wrote our Constitution in place of the original document. This Constitution defines our government today and builds a basic structure for government. Three branches were created, the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch, and the Judicial Branch. The Executive Branch houses the President of the United States, the Judicial Branch composes of a system of courts to protect the rights of the people, and the Legislative Branch is to represent the people and to make and pass laws. But, the Legislative Branch causes what Mrs. Winkie calls a "kerfluffle". The states of smaller size wanted an equivalent amount of representatives from each state regardless of the local population while on the other hand, the larger states want the number of representatives based on the population. To help ease this problem, the Great Compromise came into affect. What happens is that there will be two houses in the Legislative Branch. There will be the Senate, which has two representatives from every state. Along with that, The House of Representatives, which is made up of representatives based entirely on state population. The trouble doesn't end here though. Now slavery causes another "kurfluffle". Are slaves going to count towards the state population? Then the Three Fifths Compromise came. Only 3/5ths of the local slave population counts.

14: Georgia Constitution! | Now Georgia makes its own constitution called The Georgia Constitution. This document created a government where the people's rights were to agree upon how they were governed. It got rid of the parish system and instead eight counties were formed. It then replaced the Bicameral form of government with the one house legislature. The governor's power was extremely limited because at the time nobody wanted a governor with lots of power anymore and it's all Jame's Wright's fault. | And then...

15: Stars 'n' Stripes Forever | GA's Newer Constitution came! | They didn't like the original very much. This means there must be a newer copy! Then the new copy was made. This constitution made it very much like the US constitution and created three separate branches with unequal power. Although power was separated, it was still unbalanced between three branches. It was revised from the original GA constitution by the 1788 to 1799 delegates that met in Augusta. The state capitol is no longer Savannah from here because it was moved to Augusta. Even though it is a new constitution, it was revised at least nine or ten times most recently being after World War Two! That isn't that long ago because Mrs. Winkie could've been alive!
