The Aztec people dominated the 14th through 16th century Mesoamerica. They are one of the most noted cultures recognized in history books today and they deserve as much recognition for their accomplishments and errors as much as any other civilization because their works were much the same. Their religious practices were similar to that of the ancient civilizations throughout the entire world. The magnificent capital, Tenochtitlan, displays accomplishments other cities had achieved thousands of years before the Aztecs marched through what is now Mexico. Even the fall of their empire was like that of the far away Celtic civilization and countless others.

The Assyrians achieved many things like iron weapons, the lock and keys, sewage systems, libraries, and lunar-based calendars. The Sumerians were not only advanced in government and religious issues, they developed many other things that are apart of our life today.

The Mayan, Incan and Aztec are generally considered influential societies, but there is still sound debate on whether or not they should be considered civilizations. Seeing as these Early Americans had much of the same qualities as modern civilization and in fact laid the groundwork upon which we have built our own great civilization, it's fair to say they were worthy of the title civilization. However, not only where these people befitting of the honorific of civilization, their great accomplishments actually validate them to the point of being considered advanced. Religion, architecture, and intellectual achievements, are all tell-tale signs of an advanced civilization, and the Incan, Mayan, and Aztecs were comprised of these and much more.

Colonial Williamsburg is one of the oldest living museum in history. From the streets of Duke of Gloucester St. to S England Street this has many re-constructed buildings to be as accurate as possible. But among all the wondrous buildings there is one that stands out better than all the rest, “The Capitol Building”. It was the first representative government to vote for a constitution, the rules they made back then shaped what we know today, and also it shows how much government and laws have changed today. These are all reasons for why I think that this building unquestionably deserves the 2016 commemorative
The Romans built the most sophisticated system of roads the ancient world had ever seen. These Roman roads—many of which are still in use today—were constructed with a combination of dirt, gravel and bricks made from granite or hardened volcanic lava. These roads were often managed in the same way as modern highways. Stone mile markers and signs informed travelers of the distance to their destination, while special complements of soldiers acted as a kind of highway patrol.
