1 COLONIAL AMERICA ( ) European explorers come to North America JAMESTOWN PLYMOUTH Thirteen colonies New England colonies Spanish explorers claimed lands from Florida to California as they looked for gold. Spain set up missions to bring the Catholic religion to Native Americans, and forts to protect their claims. English explorers mapped and claimed parts of the Atlantic coast from Georgia to Canada. French explorers claimed areas near the Great Lakes and along the Mississippi River. They were followed by fur traders and missionaries. In 1607, King James I granted the Virginia Company of London permission to establish the Jamestown colony on Chesapeake Bay (on the coast of Virginia). John Smith led the colony. first permanent English settlement in the Americas Hardships: low, swampy land mosquitoes, dirty water disease Pocahontas helped through early hard times. Survived because they learned how to grow tobacco. Brought in African slaves. House of Burgesses first colonial legislature in the Americas Plymouth colony, founded by the Pilgrims, was the second English colony in America, founded in Massachusetts in Hardships: freezing winters, many died. Squanto taught Pilgrims how to grow food to survive. Mayflower Compact an agreement for self-government English kings gave permission for colonists to create 13 English colonies along the Atlantic Coast. The Appalachian Mountains were the western border. Colonial cities grew up on the coast where good harbors allowed transportation. The port cities of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Charlestown were centers of trade, population, and government. Each colony had a royal governor appointed by the king and a legislature with elected representatives from the colony. Colonists in each region, or area, adapted to the climate, soil, and geography they found. They sold their products to England. Rocky soil and cold winters. Resources: sea, forest Industries: shipbuilding, forestry, fishing, trade English Puritans came to New England seeking freedom from religious persecution MASSACHUSETTS, NEW HAMPSHIRE, CONNECTICUT, RHODE ISLAND Developed by Gwen Tompkins, HISD/PDS, in support of Houston ISD teachers and students 2007 p. 1

2 Middle colonies Southern colonies rich soil, long growing seasons, cold winters, deep rivers called the Breadbasket grew grain and raised livestock. fur trapping, shipping Known for diversity (many groups living together peacefully) and tolerance (acceptance of others) PENNSYLVANIA, NEW YORK, DELAWARE, NEW JERSEY rich soil, warm weather, flat land good for growing cash crops sold tobacco, indigo, rice, sugar, and cotton to England labor shortage indentured servants and slaves plantation a large farm that forced slaves to grow cash crops VIRGINIA, MARYLAND, THE CAROLINAS, GEORGIA GOVERNING THE COLONIES COLONIAL TRADE History of representation in England: 1215 Magna Carta This document limited the power of the King and gave rights to some citizens English Bill of Rights guaranteed English citizens certain rights and set up a process for electing representatives in Parliament (the British Congress). How representation grew in the English colonies: 1619 Virginia House of Burgesses the first representative government assembly in the colonies Mayflower Compact Pilgrims signed a contract agreeing to the rules for self-government for the colony. They agreed to follow the laws made by their representatives. Mercantilism American colonies sent raw materials to English factories, then the colonies bought manufactured goods from England. (Colonists began to resent mercantilism controlled by England.) Triangle trade The slave trade route between Africa and North America completed the triangle that ships traveled.

3 AMERICAN REVOLUTION ( ) French and Indian War Ben Franklin published this political cartoon calling American colonists to join together to fight the French. Colonial protests against British laws Patriots v. Loyalists: Americans chose sides DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 1776 Cause: The French built forts in the Ohio River Valley, west of the Appalachian Mountains. English colonists wanted the land. THE WAR: England and France fought in the American colonies ( ). American colonists sided with England, while many native American tribes fought beside the French. RESULTS: England won, forcing the French out of the land between the Appalachians and the Mississippi River. American settlers poured over the Appalachian Mountains, taking Indian land. Proclamation of 1763 King George III ordered colonists not to cross Appalachians to keep peace with Native Americans. Quartering Act Colonists had to feed and house the British soldiers who were sent to keep the peace. The British Parliament passed new tax laws to pay for the war debt. boycott refusing to buy certain products as a form of protest 1765 Stamp Act (tax on paper goods) boycott of paper goods Stamp Act Congress repeal of Stamp Act No taxation without representation! 1767 Townshend Acts (tax on imports, new courts to try colonists who ignored taxes) boycott British soldiers stationed in Boston to enforce tax laws 1770 Boston Massacre (5 colonists died) American colonists outraged repeal of Townshend Acts 1773 Tea Act boycott 1775 Boston Tea Party Intolerable Acts (took over the Massachusetts government, closed the port of Boston) boycotts, First Continental Congress meets Patriots supported independence from Great Britain Loyalists were loyal to the King George III as the ruler of the English colonies in America. The Declaration of Independence was signed July 4, 1776, in Philadelphia by delegates to the 2nd Continental Congress. The Declaration stated: All men are created equal they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness When a government violates those rights, the citizens have the right to abolish (get rid of) that government and create a new one. King George III has violated the rights of the American colonists. Then the Declaration listed grievances, or complaints, against King George III and Parliament (like shutting down legislatures).

4 Key Events of the Revolution Key People 1775 Lexington/Concord the first battles of the Revolution. The shot heard round the world. Paul Revere rode to warn the colonial militia (Minutemen) about the arrival of British troops to capture their arsenal. British retreated to Boston Trenton, NJ Gen. Washington led troops across the Delaware River to capture Trenton in a surprise attack, after Thomas Paine s Crisis inspired troops Saratoga American troops won in the Hudson River Valley and forced part of the British army to surrender. A turning point in the war. France began to help with troops and money. 1777/78 Valley Forge General Washington and the American army lost Philadelphia and spent a horrible winter training in their winter camp. Troops suffered from starvation, disease, and freezing cold Yorktown Gen. Washington forced the surrender of British Gen. Cornwallis in this port town on Chesapeake Bay, with the help of French navy and army. This battle ended the Revolution. American advantages in the war: Patriot troops knew the territory. The U.S. got help from Spain and France Treaty of Paris The treaty between the U.S. and Great Britain gave the Americans the land from the Appalachian Mountains west to the Mississippi River and recognized American independence. Samuel Adams leader of the Sons of Liberty in Boston, a secret protest group that began many protests including Boston Tea Party. Thomas Paine Englishman who wrote Common Sense, a pamphlet that encouraged American colonists to declare independence from England. Later, Paine wrote Crisis, which encouraged Washington s soldiers before the Battle at Trenton. These are the times that try men s souls... Patrick Henry Virginia Patriot who called for independence once Boston was under siege. Give me liberty or give me death! Benjamin Franklin colonial leader in Philadelphia, representative in France during the war, inventor, publisher. Thomas Jefferson Virginia delegate to the Continental Congress who wrote the Declaration of Independence in George Washington leader of the Continental Army during the Revolution, President of the Constitutional Convention.

5 CREATING THE CONSTITUTION ( ) Articles of Confederation Results of the weak new government CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION 1787 COMPROMISES at the Constitution Convention Preamble - Introduction We the People of the United States... The 2nd Continental Congress wrote the first plan of government for the colonies after it declared independence from Britain at the beginning of the Revolution. They called it the Articles of Confederation. The Articles set up a loose alliance of the states to defend themselves against Britain. The states governed themselves, printed their own money, had their own navies, but they agreed to help protect each other. Weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation Congress was too weak: could not tax, enforce laws, regulate trade, or control money. Congress ould not pay soldiers, and it was hard to pass bills because 9 of 13 states had to agree. No president (chief executive) or Supreme Court Congress was chased out of Philadelphia by Continental Army soldiers who were never paid Shays Rebellion former Continental Army soldier Daniel Shays led Massachusetts farmers in armed protest after they lost their farms because of high state taxes. The weak U.S. government could not help end the conflict. Delegates went to Philadelphia to revise (change) the Articles of Confederation. Instead, they decided to write a new plan for a stronger national government. James Madison introduced the Virginia Plan he proposed three branches of government and two houses of Congress. After five months, delegates completed the Constitution. The Constitution was ratified, or approved, in 1789, after the Bill of Rights was added. 1) The Great Compromise ended an argument between large states (Virginia) and small states (New Jersey) by creating a House of Representatives with representation based on population and a Senate with equal representation (2 senators from each state). 2) The Three-Fifths Compromise settled the argument between Northern free states and Southern slave states about how to count slaves when figuring out how many representatives each state got. The purposes of our national government: to keep the nation together (form a more perfect Union); make things fair (establish Justice), keep peace at home (insure domestic Tranquility), defend the country (provide for the common defense), take care of citizens (promote the general Welfare), and keep the country free (secure the Blessings of Liberty) PRINCIPLES OF THE CONSTITUTION Limited Government The Framers of the Constitution wanted our government to be strong enough to hold the states together, but they wanted our Constitution to limit the power of the government. a government of laws and not of men - John Adams Developed by Gwen Tompkins, HISD/PDS, in support of Houston ISD teachers and students 2007 p. 5

6 Federalism Separation of Powers Checks and Balances Republicanism Popular Sovereignty Government power is divided between the federal (national) and state governments. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. The federal government only handles jobs that affect the whole nation (like income tax, treaties, and national laws). The powers of government are separated into three branches of government: Legislative Branch lawmakers. Congress makes the laws for the nation. Executive Branch enforcers of the law. The President heads the Executive Branch. Judicial Branch judges (who interpret the laws). The highest court is the Supreme Court. Each branch can check, or limit, the power of the other two branches, so that no one branch becomes too powerful (for example, the President can veto laws, the Supreme Court can rule a law unconstitutional). reps of the public Government is controlled by the people, who give their elected representatives the power to make and enforce the laws. the people rule The power of government rests with the people, who express their ideas through voting (consent of the governed) Individual Rights Federalists v. Antifederalists The unalienable rights mentioned in the Declaration and guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and other amendments to the Constitution Federalists (Alexander Hamilton, James Madison) argued in the Federalist Papers that we needed a strong central government. Antifederalists (Patrick Henry) argued that a strong national government would take away people s and states rights. They insisted that a Bill of Rights be added to the Constitution to protect individual rights. Bill of Rights 1791 Bill of Rights the first ten amendments to the Constitution 1 freedom of speech, press, religion, peaceable assembly, petition Amending the Constitution amend change 2 right to bear arms (militia) 3 no quartering of soldiers in peace time 4 no unreasonable search or seizure, warrant 5-8 due process for people accused of a crime (jury trial, attorney, no cruel and unusual punishment) 9-10 rights not listed in the Constitution belong to states or citizens. The Constitution can be amended (changed) to keep up with changes in society. Amendments can be proposed by Congress or state legislatures. Amendments must be approved by ¾ of state conventions. The Constitution has only been amended 27 times. Developed by Gwen Tompkins, HISD/PDS, in support of Houston ISD teachers and students 2007 p. 6

7 EARLY YEARS OF THE NEW NATION ( ) Northwest Ordinance of 1787 George Washington s Presidency This law established a procedure for adding new territories and states to the United States. New states were equal to the original states. The law also provided free education and banned slavery in the new territories. I walk on untrodden ground Washington knew he would be setting a precedent (example) for presidents to follow. Washington asked for advice from his Cabinet, including Alexander Hamilton, his Secretary of the Treasury, and Thomas Jefferson, his Secretary of State. Farewell Address: Washington encouraged the U.S. to stay neutral and to form no entangling alliance with other countries. He also warned against political parties, which could divide the nation. Political Parties Washington, D.C Marbury v. Madison 1803 War of 1812 ( ) President Madison Washington s cabinet members disagreed about how much power the national government should have. They led different political parties. Alexander Hamilton and other Federalists believed in a strong national government (supported a national bank, import tariffs to protect new American factories). Represented Northerners, urban manufacturers. Thomas Jefferson and other Democratic-Republicans supported small government, the rights of the states, and low taxes. Represented the agricultural, rural South. George Washington asked Benjamin Banneker, an African-American mathematician and surveyor, to help design the new capital. This court case established the idea of judicial review. The Supreme Court can overturn a law as unconstitutional if the court decides that the law is against the U.S. Constitution. Causes: the U.S. wanted to annex Canada from the British and Florida from the Spanish. British warships were seizing American ships and impressing American sailors. U.S. was angry with Britain for encouraging Native American attacks against American settlers on the frontier. British ships blockaded American ports, blocking American imports. This encouraged American manufacturing. British troops fought in America from The British burned much of Washington, D.C. Francis Scott Key wrote The Star Spangled Banner after witnessing the American victory that defended Fort McHenry from British attack in Baltimore Harbor. Andrew Jackson won at the Battle of New Orleans after the peace treaty was signed. Result: the Era of Good Feelings, a time when Americans felt greater nationalism and patriotism and political parties stopped fighting.

8 TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS Improvements in Manufacturing Improvements in Agriculture Improvements in Transportation Improvements in Communication In England, improvements in technology created the Industrial Revolution, a change in the way goods were made. Now work was done more efficiently in factories, rather than in homes by hand. textile industry the mass production of woven cloth by machines 1790 Samuel Slater built the first spinning mill in America interchangeable parts Eli Whitney invented machines to manufacture each part of a gun exactly alike. This sped up production and made repairs easier. assembly line mass production of goods 1813 Lowell mills hired farm girls to weave cloth on power looms in factories (12 ½ hour days, low wages). Results urbanization (people leaving their farms and moving to cities) 5 million immigrants from Europe (Irish, German, Italian) overcrowding, poverty, poor working conditions in Northern cities 1793 Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin. Textile mills demanded more cotton, but the short-fibered cotton that could be grown away from the coast was hard for slaves to clean by hand. With the cotton gin, a worker could clean 50 pounds of cotton a day. Results Cotton profits made slaves more valuable increased slave trade. Many farmers moved west to grow cotton and brought slaves. Settlers moving west grew food and cotton to supply the North and created a market for Northern manufactured goods McCormick reaper allowed farmers to cut grain crops with a horsedrawn machine rather than by hand John Deere s steel plow made it possible to farm the tough, muddy midwestern soil Fulton invented the steamboat (the Clermont), increased river transportation, made transporting goods more efficient. New Orleans became an important port on the Mississippi The new Erie Canal let steamboats travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes. Made shipping between East coast and Midwest much faster and cheaper. The expanding network of railroads connected the regions, as people and goods were transported faster than ever before Samuel Morse patented the telegraph, an innovation that sped up communication between east and west.

9 WESTWARD EXPANSION ( ) Wilderness Road 1803 Louisiana Purchase Lewis and Clark Expedition 1819 Spain cedes Florida The first trans-appalachian road sped up transportation west. Result: thousands of settlers moved into Kentucky and Tennessee. Thomas Jefferson bought the Louisiana Purchase from France in The purchase of this huge territory doubled the size of the U.S. and began America s westward expansion beyond the Mississippi River. Lewis and Clark explored the Louisiana Purchase for Jefferson, mapped territory, gathered information, and established contact with Native American tribes. Sacajawea guided the expedition. After Andrew Jackson captured Pensacola, Florida, Spain gave up Florida to the United States in the Adams-Onís Treaty Monroe Doctrine Latin American countries won independence from Spain in the 1820 s. President Monroe said that the U.S. would not allow European countries to make any new colonies in North or South America. Andrew Jackson s Presidency The first Western president, founder of the Democratic party. Jacksonian democracy involving common people in government. Nullification Crisis Congress passed high tariffs (import taxes) to protect new Northern factories by making foreign goods more expensive. The South protested the 1828 Tariff of Abominations, because it made their imported goods more expensive. Vice President John C. Calhoun argued that his state of South Carolina had the right to nullify (declare illegal) the tariff law. Jackson sent federal troops to enforce the federal law. Destroyed the national bank, removed funds Panic of 1837 Indian Removal Act of 1830 Jackson asked Congress to authorize the use of force to remove southeastern tribes from prized farmland Trail of Tears Jackson ignored the Supreme Court and ordered troops to remove Cherokee and other Native Americans from settled areas east of the Mississippi River to Indian Territory west of the Mississippi River. Many died during the forced march west. Developed by Gwen Tompkins, HISD/PDS, in support of Houston ISD teachers and students 2007 p. 9

10 Manifest Destiny Mexican War ( ), Mexican Cession The belief that the United States had the God-given right to own and control all land between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This belief drove westward expansion, the annexation of Texas and Oregon, and the Mexican War. John Gast s American Progress. Public domain image Many Americans moved west: Oregon Trail farmers traveled in Conestoga wagons for farm land. Mormon Trail Mormons headed to Salt Lake City for religious reasons. Santa Fe Trail major transportation and trade route to the Southwest Rocky Mountains were a major barrier to settlers traveling west. The Republic of Texas was annexed into the United States as a slave state in The U.S. and Mexico argued about which river formed Texas southern border. Result: War between Mexico and the U.S. Henry David Thoreau wrote Civil Disobedience to protest the use of taxes to support the war. Results: Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo U.S. victory and the addition of the Mexican Cession (land from Texas to California) in Oregon Territory Great Britain and the U.S. both claimed Oregon Country. For years, the northern border of the U.S. was not set, west of the Rockies. Many American farmers moved to Oregon Territory. Some in Congress wanted to fight for the territory. The two countries signed a treaty in California Gold Rush In 1848, gold was discovered at Sutter s Mill, California population boom in California. CA gained statehood in 1850 as a free state Gadsden Purchase U.S. bought the last piece of southern border to provide land for railroad. REFORM MOVEMENTS Temperance a movement to ban the sale of alcohol and encourage people not to drink 18 th Amendment (prohibition) Education Reform Horace Mann fought for high-quality public schools for all children. Education... is the great equalizer of the conditions of men... Women s Rights Movement Women who were banned from speaking at abolition meetings started the movement for women s rights suffrage (the right to vote), the right to control property Seneca Falls Convention Elizabeth Cady Stanton presented the Declaration of Sentiments. Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott Abolition Frederick Douglass wrote the North Star. William Lloyd Garrison published The Liberator. Sojourner Truth spoke against slavery and for the rights of black women. Harriet Tubman secreted fugitive slaves to the North and Canada on the Underground Railroad. Developed by Gwen Tompkins, HISD/PDS, in support of Houston ISD teachers and students 2007 p. 10

11 CIVIL WAR ( ) CIVIL WAR The North (Union, Yankees) and the South (Confederacy, Rebels) fought the Civil War over the issues of slavery, states rights, and economic and sectional difference between the North and the South. The North and South had been different since colonial times... SECTIONALISM North textile mills, factories manufactured cloth, other goods urban European immigrants tariffs helped factory owners by making their goods competitive the Union, abolition South plantations, few factories exported cash crops rural 1/3 slaves tariffs hurt southern farmers by raising prices for imported goods states rights, slavery Voices of each region EVENTS LEADING TO CIVIL WAR Sectional leaders were loyal to the interests of their region: John C. Calhoun South Carolina senator who promoted states rights, nullification, and secession. Henry Clay (Kentucky) was called the Great Compromiser. He tried to keep peace between Northern and Southern interests. Daniel Webster (Massachusetts) represented the views of many Northerners in support of strong central government Missouri Compromise As new western states applied for statehood, the split between North and South widened. Henry Clay of Kentucky negotiated a compromise in Congress. When the Missouri Territory wanted to join the Union as a slave state, Maine was admitted as a free state. This kept the number of free and slave states equal. The Compromise of 1850 included the Fugitive Slave Law, which enraged Northerners who didn t want to help slave owners Uncle Tom s Cabin Harriett Beecher Stowe published this book about the horrors of slavery. Northerners were moved by the touching story of slaves suffering. Southerners were outraged Bloody Kansas Senator Douglass proposed opening Kansas and Nebraska territories to slavery. Thousands of northern and southern settlers poured into the territories to fight for their side Dred Scott v. Sandford A slave named Dred Scott sued his owner for his freedom in the Supreme Court. Justice Taney wrote the opinion that slaves were not citizens and did not have the right to sue in court. He stated that slaves were property, not citizens. Northerners feared this could extend slavery into territories Harper s Ferry Abolitionist John Brown led an armed slave revolt at Harper s Ferry, VA. Brown was hanged. He became a hero among Northern abolitionists. Developed by Gwen Tompkins, HISD/PDS, in support of Houston ISD teachers and students 2007 p. 11

12 Formation of the Republican Party The Northern Abolitionists formed a political party to end slavery: the Republican Party. Abraham Lincoln of Illinois was their candidate. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free Presidential Election Lincoln won the presidency, because the Southern Democrats split their votes among three candidates. The South panicked, believing Lincoln would abolish slavery. South Carolina seceded from (left) the Union. More Southern states followed. They formed the Confederate States of America. Soon, the Union and the Confederacy were at war. States Rights THE CIVIL WAR Civil War Leaders Reconstruction The idea that states had the right to control all the issues in their state except for those listed in the Constitution. Southern states used the argument to nullify (ignore) laws they didn t agree with. April 12, 1861 Fort Sumter, SC. The Civil War began when Southern troops fired on Union troops who were trying to re-supply a U.S. fort. Vicksburg, MS a Northern victory that took control of the Mississippi River from the Confederacy. A turning point in the war. Gettysburg, PA a Northern victory in which over 35,000 Confederate and Union soldiers were killed or wounded in three days of fighting. A turning point in the war. Lincoln s Gettysburg Address 1863 Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared all slaves in the rebellious Confederate states free. Appomattox Courthouse, VA Gen. Lee surrendered to Gen. Grant to end the Civil War. Grant showed mercy to Lee and his troops Lincoln was assassinated while he attended a play in Washington, D.C. Abraham Lincoln president of the U.S. during the Civil War. Believed in preserving the Union above all else. Ulysses S. Grant commander of the Union Army Robert E. Lee commander of the Confederate Army. Surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. Jefferson Davis President of the Confederate States of America a time of rebuilding after the Civil War. Federal troops went to the South to ensure that Southerners followed the new laws against slavery. 13 th Amendment made slavery illegal in the U.S. 14 th Amendment gave citizenship rights to all people born or naturalized in the U.S., including former slaves. Stated that citizens cannot be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of the law. All citizens will have equal protection under the law. 15 th Amendment gave African-American men the right to vote.
