The Constitution of the United States of America

The Constitution of the United States of America | The American Revolution | Scoop.it

A website explaining the whole Original Constitution of the United States, including the potential problems.

 

Learning Objective-

What were the potential problems with the American Constitution that emerged in 1776.

Kayley Brash's insight:

This website includes plenty of information on the American Constitution of 1776. Although the Constitution had a fantastic goal, they faced some problems along the way. For example, the Congress lacked the power to help the states to work together to solve global issues. The information is significant because it suggests the way the United States began to work as a country; great ideas, but challenges sometimes.

How The Colonies Were Able to Win Independence

How The Colonies Were Able to Win Independence | The American Revolution | Scoop.it

A website giving the reasons why the Colonies were able to win their freedom.

 

Learning Objective-

Why did the American Colonies win the War of Independence?

Kayley Brash's insight:

This is a very useful website on the Colonists victory in the War of Independence, and how they rose to freedom during the war. It gives tons of relevant information on the possibility of their victory, and the actual win itself. For example; the American Colonists knew every hill, every rock, and  every tree, so the British found it difficult to defeat the colonists in the countryside, also, the British only had help from, well, the British and Germany. But the Colonists, had help from France, Spain, Holland, AND, nearly every single colonist helped out, from soldiers, to shopkeepers, to slaves! The information is significant because these little facts, are what lead to America's independence! Without these major plot points in history, there may not be the United States of America!

The Stamp Act 1765

The Stamp Act 1765 | The American Revolution | Scoop.it

A website on the full summary of the 1765 Stamp Act. 

Kayley Brash's insight:

This website is great because it gives lots of relevant information on the Stamp Act. It gives everything, from the reason why the tax was enforced, (because of the high cost of the British and French war), to the final settlement of the Stamp Act Congress, "(No Taxation Without Representation)!" I thought the most interesting part was how the British created a stamp to show that the tax has been paid, it's interesting, but horrible at the same time! This information is significant because the Stamp Act (in my opinion), completely boosted the American Revolution, because it was when the colonists finally got together to try and fix all their problems. So this information is useful because it helps us to understand how the War of Independence came to be.

The Boston Tea Party

The Boston Tea Party | The American Revolution | Scoop.it

A website that gives a full summary on the Boston Tea Party, 1773.

Kayley Brash's insight:

This website is great because it tells you all that you need to know about the Boston Tea Party; from start to finish. It also mentions "No taxation without representation!" Which is how the Boston Tea Party, and then the War of Independence came to be. This website is good for those who need relevant information on the Boston Tea Party, and why it "paved the road" to the War of Independence, because of the American's change of mind, realizing that there was more that they could do than just be bossed around by the king. The information is significant because it played a massive part in the American Revolution, and the war.

The Effects of the War of Independence on Britain

The Effects of the War of Independence on Britain | The American Revolution | Scoop.it

A website including the effects on Britain after the War of Independence.

 

Learning Objective-

What were the political and financial consequences of the loss of the American Colonies for Britain? 

Kayley Brash's insight:

This website had very useful information on the consequences for Britain after the American Colonists victory, political and financial. For example, the War of Independence cost a lot, especially for Britain so afterwards, the British taxes had to be raised, because they no longer had the colonists to pay tax. Another problem was how much Britain's Parliament and Government was teased and humiliated, I mean, they really had just lost to some soldiers, but mostly ordinary townspeople. Plus, very one thought no one could defeat the British Empire, so it was a massive shock. The information is significant because what happened after the war, is just as important as what started it. These consequences are all important because it proves that Britain was too confident for their own good, and if you try, you can achieve anything, even freedom!
