In 1776, after a long and tedious war, the 13 United States of America successfully gained independence from their tyrannical British Monarchy; however, gaining independence was not the only change the states needed to survive after those draining times. Each of the 13 states wished to remain sovereign, taking steps alone in their best individual interest, which caused disjunction within the country. In 1777, the Continental Congress came together in order to resolve these issues and create a new, more unified nation. As a result, the Articles of Confederation were born, in an attempt for these states to act together and become a true unified nation. Unfortunately, this document was heavily flawed and too weak to form a successful central

By the end of the eighteenth century, Americans developed an inflated view of their own greatness. Vitalized by its military success and growing economic prosperity, the young nation grew enamored by the apparent eminence of its own democratic civilization. America established its own set of ideals, but the nation’s exceptionalism allowed little toleration of those who fell outside such norms. Authors across the normal literary canon have actively explored this phenomenon of the “other,” illuminating the struggles of abnormality in the American system. In Linden Hills, Gloria Naylor depicts a young man who must suppress his homosexuality in order to be successful in his community.
The Great Gatsby and the American dream and success it illustrates including: wealth, fame, and roaring parties held by Jay Gatsby may initially seem wholly different from The Catcher in the Rye. However the more one looks in depth at the main characters, the easier it becomes to understand their similarities. Holden Caulfield and Jay Gatsby share the need to hold on to what was once. Both characters grasp so tightly to memories in the past, it blinds them to reality in present-day. This is mainly a result of both characters being idealists and rejecting change.

History has molded our present and determined our future as a country. 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”.
