Washington knew a strong Constitution had to be in place, which is why he was responsible for the Constitutional Convention. The effects of his inaugural address and presidency really mattered, given he was the first of our many presidents. George Washington proved he truly cared for the American people and the country. He took charge and changed what had to be done, because his speech altered the government and society as we know it today; our Constitution, our executive and judicial branches, and our Supreme Court. While he did emphasize the need for a Constitution, he was not the only one responsible for it’s making.

In the 19th Century the idea to move westward would present Americans with new opportunities and a chance for possible wealth. Americans were determined to explore the lands from the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the Pacific Ocean. The term Manifest Destiny in short, is a movement. A movement in which gave Americans the “right” to colonize and civilize west because it’s their calling. Americans believed that expanding throughout the continent would give them new opportunity to share the government, which they believed was so great.
In the coming years, severe economic difficulties, foreign problems, state sovereignty, limited central government and rebellions urge the United States to construct a new government. Important figures such as Alexander Hamilton himself, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, James Madison and many others worked towards forming and instituting a new and more sustainable system of government. Ultimately the Constitution was created-- which divided the United States government into three equal branches that worked in an equal system of checks and balances. Considering the failure of the A.O.C it was in part the foundation the Constitution-- it gave the Founding Fathers a clear guideline for what not to do. The Constitution provided the legitimacy and power the federal government desperately needed while also allowing the citizens of the United States to have a significant role in how they are
The Constitutional Convention was one of the most momentous occurrences in United States Constitutional history. The point of the constitutional convention is decide how America is going to be governed. The guys that contributed to it are James Madison and Alexander Hamilton.

The most vital aspect of a well functioning group could be said to be central leadership. No matter the size, a leader is essential. Even within a small sports team, central leadership, is necessary. On a much larger scale, such as the Government system for a Country, the need for central leadership becomes much more indispensable. The founding fathers of The United States of America insisted on incorporating a strong central leadership in The Articles of Confederation.
The Articles of Confederation was one of the first official documents of the United States. From the beginning of the American Revolution, Congress felt the need for a stronger union and a government powerful enough to defeat Great Britain. During the early years of the war this desire became a belief that the new nation must have a constitutional order appropriate to its republican character. However, after a few short years the Articles were replaced by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Articles were a stepping stone which led to the Constitution however the Articles contained more weaknesses than strengths which forced the colonists to get rid of them and create a new document.
Concern over security issues FDR and his administration from disclosing some information to Congress. Nevertheless, Congress has the right to be informed as much a possible of the progress of the programs that were established to increase the nation’s military might. FDR went on to say: “New circumstances are constantly be getting new needs for our safety. I shall ask this Congress for greatly increased new appropriations and authorizations to carry on what we have begun. I also ask this Congress for authority and for funds sufficient to manufacture additional munitions and war supplies of many kinds, to be turned over to those nations which are now an actual war with aggressor nations.”
After the ratification of the Constitution, a new system of government was introduced, but America was facing major difficulties. The United States was in an enormous amount of debt from the Revolutionary War, and rising political parties were already developing tensions. Political leaders such as Alexander Hamilton and George Washington took measures to shape the orderly growth of the United States Government which followed. Hamilton’s financial plan and Washington’s precedent contributed to the institution of a strong national government that would shape the economic growth of the U.S. During the state of debt, Hamilton recognized America ’s need for an effective financial system.
This expansion would not only demonstrate the ability that the United States had to control North America but also lead to a defining event in United States history, the Civil War.

The expansion into these areas shed light onto the issues being faced by the people and states of the United States as they continued grow and define themselves.

The way it provides military troops is through a random lottery drawing of registered men in times of need.

As a result, they created the United States Constitution that we still use now. This new document became the ultimate rule of the United States of America. The Constitution shapes the national structure of the government. Within the Constitution, we are presented with the

Without a solid economy-a civilization whether large or small could never thrive.
The history of America has molded this country into what it is known today as, “the land of freedom” or “one of the best countries in the world”. One of the biggest roles that have come into play is America’s wars; some major wars were the Revolutionary War and the Civil war.
