Preface:

The most casual observer can not have failed to notice that within a few years past a taste for the study of American History has been rapidly growing in this country. A more gratifying feature of the tendency is that it has reached our common schools and that people in the lower grades where history has never before been taught are eagerly seeking to know the country’s history. Page 151: End of the war (1781) The Treaty of peace was not signed till 2 years afterward but the British had mad no further effort to carry on the war.


The news of the splendid victory set the country wild! The watchmen in the street at night shouted the good news at the top of their voices. Bells were rung, bonfires lighted, streets illuminated and people in ecstasy wept for joy. The old Door Keeper at congress died with joy in hearing that his country was at last free. People wanted to make Washington King and he had to use all his influence to quiet them. As soon as the treaty was signed the British gave up the cities they still held and the new nation began its life of independence.

The soldiers went home quietly to their farms and to their shops. Washington returned to his home in Mount Vernon, Virginia. He would not become king or even take pay for his great service. Then the states seemed to be divided instead of united. It soon became evident that this would not work. There was an enormous amount of debt and no money to pay it.

The trade was broken up and the people were poor. Virginia took the first effort in uniting in 1786, under the influence of James Madison, inviting other states to a convention for general trading. Only five states sent delegates but they wisely asked congress to call a convention of all states to adopt a stronger form of government for the whole country.

Congress called a convention which met at the State House in Philadelphia in 1787, After four months of debating they agreed upon the Constitution and later after much complaining about the people’s God given rights the first ten Amendments “The Bill of Rights” was added.
