Abolishment of Slavery in the Northern States

...want to encourage wholesale slave rebellion, which would have angered loyal Virginian slaveholders. But he did want to make the Rebels as vulnerable as possible. This vulnerability, especially given the large number of southern slaves, contributed to the Crown’s strategy for winning the war. The Northern colonies, too, began to offer their slaves manumission or freedom in exchange for military service. [2] By 1776, the slaves’ claim for liberty had made quite an impression on some whites. Thomas Jefferson blamed slavery on King George III in his original draft of the Declaration of Independence. But while some were willing to agree that King George III should be held accountable for what seemed like a British conspiracy against American liberties, other members of the Continental Congress did not approve the criticism of slavery expressed by Jefferson. If Jefferson’s original draft of the Declaration of Independence had been adopted it would have committed the American republic to ending slavery. Instead, when it was adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, the declaration mentions slavery only to blame the British forces for inciting slaves, to fight against the colonists. The Declaration of Independence officially committed those who supported the Revolution to the principle of liberty. [3] Shortly after publication, Lemuel Haynes, a former Minuteman, and a private in the Continental army wrote an essay entitled “Liberty Further Extended; or, Free......

Jefferson's Draft of the Declaration of Independence, 28 June, 1776

...Jefferson's draft of the Declaration of Independence, 28 June, 1776 As it probably read when Jefferson submitted it for corrections In the original text there are some changes: these are indicated by [ ..... ]. Most of these changes seem to be by Jefferson himself, but some of these are in a handwriting that resembles that of Adams. A Declaration by the Representatives of United States of America, in General Congress Assembled When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for a people to advance from that subordination in which they have hitherto remained, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the equal and independent station to which the laws of nature and of nature's god entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the change We hold these truths to be [sacred and undeniable] selfevident, that all men are created equal and independent; that from that equal creation they derive in rights inherent and inalienables, among which are the preservation of life, and liberty and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these ends, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing it's powers in such form, as......

...determine the constitutionality of governmental action 6. Federalism-The division of governmental power between National and state governments. The Declaration of Independence was drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, is at once the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument. The 13 American colonies severed their political connections to Great Britain. The Declaration summarized the colonists’ motivations for seeking their independence. By declaring themselves an independent nation, the American colonists were able to conclude an official alliance with the government of France and obtain French assistance in the war against Great Britain. Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people in exalted and unforgettable phrases. The political philosophy of the Declaration was not new; its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John Locke and the Continental philosophers. What Jefferson did was to summarize this philosophy in "self-evident truths" and set forth a list of grievances against the King in order to justify before the world the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother country. During 1776, only people who own land can vote. Right to vote during the Colonial and Revolutionary periods is restricted to property owners—most of whom are white male. The Declaration of Independence also paved the way and created equality among all......

...Except from Washington’s Crossing by David Hackett Fischer CONCLUSION ~ The War and the American Revolution We have a very difficult card to play. We often have to act by the moon or twilight and leave the World to judge it in the clear sunshine. -General William Maxwell to Adam Stephen, April 10, 17771 On New Year’s Day in 1777, Robert Morris sent George Washington a letter that rings strangely in a modern ear. “The year 1776 is over,” Morris wrote. “I am heartily glad of it and hope you nor America will ever be plagued with such another.” Washington shared that feeling, which was very far from our own. We celebrate 1776 as the most glorious year in American history. They remembered it as an agony, especially the “dark days” of autumn.2 Americans have known many dark days, from the starving times in early settlements to the attack on the World Trade Center. These were the testing times and the pivotal moments of our history. It was that way in 1776, after the decision for independence and the military disasters in New York. In early December, British commanders believed that they were very close to ending the rebellion, and American leaders feared that they might be right. Then came a reversal of fortune, and three months later the mood had changed on both sides. By the spring of 1777, many British officers had concluded that they could never win the war. At the same time, Americans recovered from their despair and were confident that they would...

My Last Duchess

...The first letter from Abigail Adams to John Adams on March 31, 1776: After Abigail Adams heard about the Declaration of Independence, she wanted to remind her husband about the rights of women. At that time, women couldn’t do anything except domestic thing. Their words had no value. In this letter, Abigail Adams wanted her husband put in a new code of law of women’s right. They should have an equal power as man do. She wanted women should have the right to vote, not servants for men. The replied letter from John Adams to Abigail Adams on April 14, 1776: John Adams wanted to say that he could not do anything for Abigail Adams. He could not just write down a code of law randomly. There were many political problems were going on, but, he won’t blot her idea out. Her idea would be remained. He hoped General George Washington and other good politicians would fight for it. The second letter from Abigail Adams to John Adams on May, 1776: In this letter, Abigail Adams once again gave prominence to women. They had arbitrary power just like men. They could subdue their master and even throw men’s natural and legal authority at their feet without violence. The importance of this document considering the historical setting is it shows the long process of women try to get their rights in speak and the right to vote as man do. The things that men could do, they could do. They should have the same power as men do. Women in the past had fought for their rights....

1776 Essay

...Abraham Wu Jeremy Chandruc/ Randolph Fodali US History I 9 September 2013 Booker T. Washington once said, “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” In 1776, by David McCullough, this quote truly resonates the fact that it is the little things that count, as not necessarily the big picture. Although there are many pitfalls the Americans go through during the course of this story, the outcome of the war would be a positive success to the Americans. As a result, good leadership is a very important factor in accomplishing a goal. Also, encouragement is a big help when it comes to boosting a soldier’s morale. Furthermore, endurance is vital to an army and a war’s success based on the spirit of the men and the devotion to their cause. To begin, a leader has to be both disciplined and commanding. There are many men that can have this position, but George Washington is the ultimate man that best fits these criteria. The author describes him as the man that has, “The look and bearing of a man accustomed to respect and to being obeyed” (McCullough, 42). This is very crucial of a great leader because his followers will believe in whatever he says and they will cooperate with him. Thus, Washington had the charm and the ability to make people respect him due to his behavior and his way of interacting with people. In doing so, this helps him in gaining other people’s respect over the years as......

Explain and Discuss How the War of Impendence, the Declaration of Independence Etc. Influences the Understanding of the Us Today.

...Explain and discuss how the War of Impendence, the Declaration of Independence etc. influences the understanding of the US today. America has been independence since 1776 and the idea of the US has followed it the whole way through until now and definitely the way forward. I have always seen The US as a great country, a superpower which always stands in the front of their beliefs and the worlds. The US is in one way the centre of the world and always has the leading part. I have never seen the US as a country far away from my own, Denmark, but the culture is a total difference anyway. The history of the US has influenced the understanding of the US in every way; in values and in beliefs. The whole concept in how and what the Americans aims at can you find in a document adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776. The declaration of Independence have sat the goal for this nation, Gods Nation, and marked every important speech, speaker and every American. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”(Declaration of Independence) The declaration of Independence sets the standard in the very beginning of text. The document contented many of the ideas that separated the US and the other colonies from England and thus began the process of creating the US, a free country. Religion or freedom of religion was a core idea......

The market will settle on the product distribution and prices if it is beneficial. He worried that large corporations would dominate the industry. He was also concerned that these corporations led by self interest will use their influence with the government to unfairly oppose their competitors and/or to suppress the salary and wages of their employees. In the Philippines, wealthy and influential people can put someone in jail by using their influence and resources. They could do things which are not legal, and if brought to the attention of the court, the court always favors the affluent. The author said (1776), “Without barter or trade, everyone must have the same duties and the same work to produce what they needed.” (p.27) He also said “that because of self interest we bargain with others.” (p. 24) If we are in need of something whether goods or services in which others possess, we would offer them with something that we have as an excess or a thing that we do not need. Not because we have excess of that product but for the reason that we need that thing which the other have. Smith (2003) said, “that competition is economically efficient.” (p.xii) Competition favors the consumers not the producers. If two establishments have the same product, the consumer would have the power to choose a product that is more affordable considering......

Declaration of Independence Paper

...The Declaration of Independence is the document that was drafted as a proclamation for the 13 original colonies of New England to emancipate themselves from the British Empire. It was written in 1776 and ratified within the same few months. In total, there were multiple authors, many signees, and an even greater amount of contributors. The authors of the Declaration of Independence include five main Revolutionary leaders. The main leader who originally drafted the Declaration was Thomas Jefferson, and the four other main authors include John Adams, Robert R. Livingston, Roger Sherman and Benjamin Franklin. Jefferson was one of the original Founding Fathers of the U.S. as well as the third U.S. President. He was a proponent of the Continental Congress under the state of Virginia as well as the first U.S. Secretary of State. Adams, the second President of the U.S., was an influential public leader in Boston, Massachusetts as well as the Continental Congress. He played a major part in pushing independence for the colonies. Livingston was a Chancellor, which is the highest judicial officer in the state, as well as a Recorder from New York. Several years after the Declaration was written, he took office as the U.S. Secretary of Foreign Affairs. Sherman was the first mayor of New Haven, a town in Connecticut. Once the Declaration was written, he became a representative and senator in the new republic. Franklin was one of the original authors who wore the most hats. ...
