Subject to citizen storyboard 2
This storyboard does not have a description.
Let's make a document that separates us from Britain.,
After a while the colonists didn't really like the laws so they started to have reactions to these laws such as the Boston tea party, which was basically the colonists throw 90,000 pounds of tea over board. They also made an olive petition, telling the king they didn't want to go to war. They also started boycotting British goods, after they made the Declaration of Independence which officially separated the colonies from Britain.
After they were done with the reactions the continental congress (educated men that governed colonies) made the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration was a document that officially separated the colonies with Britain, it had four parts, the first, preamble, was saying they're breaking up. The declaration of rights was saying that they have rights, The lists of grievances was listing all the bad things Britain has done. The resolution of Independence said that they're over.
If the colonies did it so could we!
Britain got pretty mad, so they went to war with the colonies. During the war the colonies were successful in some due to George Washington, a great battle general. The British hired the Germans during the war and the colonies had the french to help them. The colonies also had a camp called Valley Forge which was going bad but George Washington came to save them. After the french and the colonies surrounded Cornwallis and the redcoats, in which they surrendered.
hmmm, how should we make this government?
After the war the colonies government was very weak and many people died during the war. They gained more land and are now free from Britain.
They now have rights for everyone (white men only). Now the revolutionary spirit spread all around Europe. The continental congress wrote the first constitution.
Now instead of colonies they're states. The united states is now an official country. They are figuring out a new government at this moment.
