I was wondering if you can explain what was the Magana Carta, Mayflower compact and the Zenger case? And why they were important?
Why yes I can!
The Magana Carta is a document that limited the king of Britain's power over the people and the government. The document is important to the U.S. government because it keeps the branches of the government and the president powers' at balance.
The Mayflower Compact was a document that stated the government would rule by the consent of the citizens. This is important since it was a social contract.
The Zenger case was a case against John Peter Zenger, a German immigrant for his publications of articles against a governor. This case is important to the U.S. government since it sets up freedom of speech and freedom of press.
Wow! Thank you, Mr. Smith! That helped me understand the foundations more clearly!
