The american revolution part 2

  1. 1. The American Revolution Part 2<br />Hannah houze<br />
  2. 2. Chapter Six<br />On January 10, 1776, Thomas Paine published his pamphlet Common Sense to talk about solving the problems with the British through republicanism and independence<br />Later on in 1776, the colonies began creating their own constitutions so as to create sovereign states <br />The Articles of Confederation make up the first governing document of the U.S.<br />When the last people to sign the constitution, Maryland, signed, the Continental Congress dissolved and the United States in Congress Assembled to it’s place<br />
  3. 3. Chapter Seven<br />In the Battle of Brooklyn, the British defeated Washington’s army in a comeback after Washington had kicked them out <br />Negotiations were attempted, but the British wanted a retraction of the Declaration of Independence, which was of course refused<br />The British took control of New York, and almost captured Washington<br />New Jersey was also gained, but Washington took it back in a surprise attack in December 1776<br />New York was surrendered after British troops got stuck upstate<br />In 1778, the French formerly joined the Americans, becoming the first country to recognize the Declaration of Independence<br />
  4. 4. Paragraph on Revolution<br />Like I said before, I enjoy the American Revolution. Some major points I learned, were that the British tried to take control even after the Americans won and wrote the Declaration of Independence. I don’t think I ever realized that. I find it entertaining the British lost New York because of a mis-coordination. I also chuckled at the fact the Cornwallis was so embarrassed by his defeat that he had to send his second in command to surrender for him<br />
