  • U.S. History By: Matt Cramer
  • The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America
  • Everyone in our united nation is created equally and everyone has the right to be protected under the government with the pursuit of life, libery and property
  • Separation of Powers
  • I agree, we cannot let one person or group become too powerful, we all must be equal
  • We should come up with a system where no one can get too powerful
  • Lets call it separation of powers
  • Articles of Confederation
  • We, as the thirteen colonies need to come together and make a set of rules to ensure that we all stay independent and happy
  • Ah, Yes! We shall call this the articles of confederation
  • All men are created equal and there are certain unalienable rights that governments should never violate. These rights include the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. When a government fails to protect those rights, it is not only the right, but also the duty of the people to overthrow that government.
  • Three Branches of Government  
  • I represent the Legislative. 
  • I represent the Executive.
  • The Definition of Separation of powers an act of vesting the legislative, executive, and judicial powers of government in separate bodies.
  • Constitutional Convention
  • I believe that we all agree that we agree something needs to change with the articles.
  • The Articles of Confederation was the original constitution, it was created in 1777 and replaced by our current US Constitution in 1789.This was the original "constitution" and it was made in the eyes of federalist's. This document was later opposed in the eyes of anti-federalism because the document had too many flaws and was starting conflicts in the states. 
  • Bill of Rights
  • Bill of Rights 1.Freedom of religion, speech and press 2.The right to bear arms 3.The housing of soldiers 4.Protection from unreasonable searches and seizures 5.Protection to rights of life, liberty and property 6.Right of accused persons in criminal cases 7.

  • There are three branches of government in the United states and they are: the judicial branch, legislative branch and the executive branch. The judiciary is the system of courts that interprets and applies the law in the name of the state. The executive is the organ exercising authority in and holding responsibility for the governance of a state. A legislature is a deliberative assembly with the authority to make laws for a political entity such as a country or city.
  • I represent the Judicial.
  • The constitutional convention was a group of people among the colonies who met between May and September of 1787. They met to discuss the articles of confederation and its weak central government. After this the articles were ratified in hope for a new system to be made where there would be a better central government and so they could have a president, or someone that could make final decisions based upon the people.
  • These amendments guarantee rights for people.
