The present world has been developed as a result of a large number of past events and occurrences. All through the past two hundred years, the world has seen a number of wars, disturbances, moments that have created the so called present world. The initial phase for the upbringings saw both a constructive and destructive phase. Thousands of people were killed in all parts of the world while many countries were conquered by the powerful nations. In the same period, some of the countries emerged as the major powers of the world. The most powerful nation that emerged out during that phase that has left an overpowering impact on the entire world is United States Of America. During the phase of epistolary of moments leading to the development of US federal government and creation of an effective jurisdiction system saw emerged out some people who created the foundations of so-called present U.S.A. Today, I will be discussing the development of United States in the eighteenth century along with the emergence of the most effective leaders.
The very important name which comes first in the formation of present day USA is Sir George Washington, who was the member of the first continental congress followed by the leader of the continental army. He also became the first president of United States. He was a part of all the major events that took place in 18th century in US and created the foundations of all the events that created. He led the army that won a large number of wars Capture of Boston. He played a key role in American independence. ()
Another popular figure who led an important role both in the first and second continental congress was John Adams. He was the member of the committee that drafted the "Declaration of Independence". Later on, he was elected as the first vice president and second president of USA.
You would also be glad to know about, Thomas Jefferson, who was a member of second continental congress and wrote the "Declaration of Independence." He was selected as the third vice president of USA. The father of the constitution of US was James Madison. The Bill of Rights of U.S. was also drafted by him.
Another revolutionary leader of U.S. who was know as the elder statesmen of revolution and also made negotiations based on the Treaty of Paris. The founder of the Sons of Liberty was Samuel Adams, who led an important role in the formulation of liberal rights in US. He also helped in the creation of Article of Confederation and Massachusetts Constitution and also became the governor. ()
A very important pamphlet was written by a Thomas Paine named as Common Sense, which was published in the year 1976. It was his pamphlet which convinced many British colonists. He also founded the wisdom of open rebellion against the British. A revolutionary who was never afraid to speak up against the British was Patrick Henry. He was a powerful revolutionary who took a leading role in American independence.
A person who fought for American independence in the revolutionary war was Hamilton, who planned on the moment of creation of secretary of the treasury. He designed the layout of the economic system of United States which can be useful for the creation of a strong financial economy.
The interesting thing that I would like to tell you is that most of the founding fathers of U.S.A. were American African Slaves. The forming members also ensured that there is minimum slavery in U.S.A. Slavery was even prohibited in many parts of U.S.A., and effective measures were taken in the constitution in order to abolish slavery.
George Washington had done many accomplishments during his presidential time he came up voluntarily to resign from his post of commander in chief because many people wanted to make him the king of the new nation because he was victorious over the revolutionary wars. He refused because he had the desire of seeing the nation free, democratic & united. He was also successful in forming a federal government in his first term in office. He never liked to interfere in any kind of policy making powers. He had a belief that the main concern for the young nation was the foreign policy. Also, another great man John Adams whose presidential accomplishments are remarkable; he successfully handled the quasi war with France in the year 1798, which the conflict between trading routes. He was successful in establishing peace with the French & protection of the American merchants. ()
Thomas Paine the great political activist published a book in 1971 named Rights of Man. Paine stated that he was completely against monarchy used the US as an example to be a Democratic Republic so successful. He believed that the government should be ruled by the people, the government's main aim should be to protect its people & their rights. He also wrote a book named Age of Reason he was in prison then, which was against the church. It was a very controversial book as it went against organised religion. At that time people used to be highly organised in a matter of religion & then writing a book against it was a big issue. He was shunned. ()
Third US president Thomas Jefferson, () he was a great political leader, but his major accomplishments in the field of education happened just after his political career was over. His last years were spent creating the University of Virginia. He was very broad minded & clearly understood that each & every student have their own requirements & interest & he, therefore, allowed electives in his university's curriculum. He himself designed different aspects of his university. He surveyed each & every site, planned all buildings & also supervised each & every work. Jefferson put a new foundation for future universities. His wish was to let human's mind free to think & create whatever he wants with his knowledge & whatever he wants to explore.
James Madison fourth president of the United States, he was secretary of state under Jefferson, a delegate to the Constitutional convention elected member of congress. ()
Britain's North American colonies must have dissolved their colonial relationship with the political body of Great Britain, because it would have helped improve their position. When it comes to the power of the government in any country, we must remember that the government derives its power from its people, the general public. It is obvious that the government can take over the control till the people let them to. But when there comes some danger or some critical situation where the government needs to take stern action the social contact between the government & its people can be broken.
There was conflict between great Britain and its American colonies; some people viewed it as an economic issue. The relationship between Great Britain & Americans was followed by many hardships, there was a political struggle in between I guess. Multiple acts were passed written by the Parliament in order to solve the tension in between them but there was even more friction created in between Great Britain & the American colonies. There were arguments on taxes also. British parliament tried to keep a lot of control over the colonies it can be seen in the acts passed by British Parliament as Sugar Act (1764), Quartering Act (1765), & the stamp act (1765). But in return the colonists were agitated by these acts. They didn't want to follow or pay taxes according to any of this act. Colonists argued that it was unjust to pass acts that affected the colonies alone. The real reason behind this was that, as there was no representative from the American colonies in the Parliament, which made these acts unacceptable to them. England had a very clear mindset about taxation & legislation. They treated taxation as a need, as an attempt for both sides to gain power. On one hand, Britishers used it as a mechanism of control where as American Colonists used it for freedom.
