Over time Worcester became a close friend of the Cherokee leaders and advised them about their political and legal rights under the Constitution and federal-Cherokee treaties. The Georgia government recognized that Worcester was influential in the Cherokee resistance movement and enacted a law that prohibited "white persons" from residing within the Cherokee Nation without permission from the state. When I first started researching the case, the sources I looked at gave no mention to the fact that Worcester was wanted and welcomed in the territory, or that he was helping the Cherokees with legal issues. The fact that he was helping with legal issues is probably the main reasons the Georgia government wanted him off the territory, as they wanted the Cherokees out of their boundaries.
If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union (35).’ This letter is very important because it contradicts everything that Lincoln said in his First Inaugural Address just seven months before this was written. In his address he stated that he didn’t have the authority from the constitution to interrupt slavery, but after the letter he was willing to ignore the whole Constitution and emphasize more or less powers in the dictatorship. It is also very important, according to DiLorenzo, to note that Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation did not free a single slave. Chapter four gets down to Henry Clay’s “American System” which was Lincoln’s real agenda.

Roger Williams might be well notorious for being the new founder of the state Rhode Island. When he first settled a colony in Narragansett, a settlement in Rhode Island, one of his many principles was that there should be a separation between church and state colonies. Many individuals made the decision to move to Rhode Island–– due to their religious freedom. Jews, Baptists, and even Quakers decided to join this movement. A good proportion of settlers confiscated lands, which belonged to Native Americans; however, Roger Williams made an impactful decision that no one should be allowed to confiscate them.
England never had proper control over its colonies. Many immigrants left England knowing that the nation 's power within the colonies was virtually nonexistent. It could be argued that England appointed governors and passed laws before 1763 in an attempt to control its colonies, but it is known that colonists largely undermined these efforts and found ways to circumvent the generally unenforced legislation. The colonies had been deciding their own laws and faith since they had arrived on the foreign continent, because of how accustomed the Americans became to home rule, they would not let England take their right from them.
Gross gives us a good depiction of who these people were, and how they were not much different than us today. The people of concord were not eager to start a revolution, but they did what they thought was right. Scope: The time period that this book is written in is before, during, and after the Revolutionary War. The Revolutionary War was from 1775 to about 1783. Before anyone thought about fighting the British for what they believed to be right, Concord was just a common town with average people trying to make a living.
In March 24, 1775 the quartering act was passed, which was the act that stated all the British will have to have a place to stay even if it was a person’s home. This clearly was a bad idea. Complaints were made, but England simply ignored them. They may have not been intending to make the colonists upset; however, they made the colonists beyond upset.

When my dad told me that we were coming to the united states, I was excited but at the same time, I was mad that we were leaving some close family members behind.

The founding fathers play a big role in modern day America, because if they wouldn’t have broken away from Great Britain people would not have religious freedoms or many other freedoms. “many people to drift away from the moorings of orthodox religion during the eighteenth century,” (Tindall and Shi, 79). The colonist left Great Britain, so they could have more say in what they believed; they even sat the country up to where no religion would be favored over the other.
