Msg event.pngCongress of the Confederation


From March 1, 1781, to March 4, 1789, the governing body of the United States of America was the Congress of the Confederation for the United States in Congress Assembled, an immediate successor to the Second Continental Congress.

Despite a lack of power, the Congress managed to pass many laws, including the Northwest Ordinance. The Congress has convened to discuss the enormous debt the War of Independence has saddled the country with and the matter of slavery in the Northwest Ordinance. Eight million dollars is owed to the French and Dutch, with the total federal debt being nearly 40 million dollars. A five percent duty on import is proposed, and the proposed abolishment of slavery in the Northwest Ordinance is causing quite an uproar...

The War of Independence against the British left the country in serious debt, with the federal debt a total of 40 million dollar of which eight million dollars owed to the French and Dutch. The Congress has twice proposed to lay a 5% duty on imports in order to pay the interest and principal of the debt, but it needs the consent of all thirteen states to add this to the Articles of Confederation.

Msg event.pngNorthwest Ordinance


The Northwest Ordinance creates the Northwest Territory, from lands south of the Great Lakes, north and west of the Ohio River, and east of the Mississippi River. This is the most important piece of legislation passed by members of the Continental Congresses other than the Declaration of Independence. The Northwest Ordinance established the precedent by which the federal government would be sovereign and expand westward across North America with the admission of new states, rather than with the expansion of existing states and their established sovereignty under the Articles of Confederation.

The Congress has proposed that 'There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the said territory.', which has caused uproar among the members of the Congress. What shall it be, shall slavery be prohibited in the Northwest Territory according to the Northwest Ordinance or not?

Msg event.pngArticles of Confederation


The Thirteen States that established the United States as a confederation of sovereign states have approved a version of the Articles of Confederation and sent to the states for them to ratify. It has provided domestic and international legitimacy for the Continental Congress to direct the American Revolutionary War, conduct diplomacy with Europe and deal with territorial issues and Indian relations even though it is not yet ratified. There has been long debates on issues such as sovereignty, the exact powers to be given the confederate government, whether to have a judiciary, and voting procedures during the drafting of the Articles.

Msg event.pngDeclaration of American Independence


Thomas Paine, the English-American political activist, author, political theorist and revolutionary who inspired the Patriots to declare independence from Britain, argued in the first edition of 'Common Sense' that USA needed a formal declaration of American Independence. Without a Declaration of Independence, USA is considered outlaws by the European nations, rebels against a legitimate monarch, and to transform us into a legitimate nation we need international recognition for our cause and foreign allies to support it. The Declaration of Independence is a statement that announces that the Thirteen States regards themselves as independent states and no longer part of the British Empire.

The Thirteen States of America has declared their independence from the British Empire by signing the United States Declaration of Independence. This was done to transform the Thirteen States into a legitimate nation and to give USA the international recognition needed to gain support and allies for their cause. Should we formally recognize the new country and accept their Declaration of Independence, with a possibility to anger Great Britain but gaining gratitude from a young nation?

Msg event.pngConstitutional Convention


The Constitutional Convention are addressing problems in governing the USA, as operating under the Articles of Confederation has proven problematic. The Confederation government is inadequate for managing the various conflicts that has risen among the states, and as it is dependent on the Thirteen States for money but has no taxing power it lack funds to deal with the increasing debt from the War of Independence. There was a proposal to modify the Articles of Confederation but it was decided it would be better to create a new government than fix the existing one. The issues that will be discussed are the government form, composition and election of the Senate, how to elect the president, the slavery issue, to abolish the slave trade or not and what offenses should be impeachable among many others.

The first issue discussed for the new Constitution was the government form. The composition and election of the Senate, how to divide the executive power, between three persons or invest the power into a single president, how to elect the president and how long his term was to be and whether he could stand for reelection.

The two suggested government forms were 'American Republic', 'American Federation' and 'Constitutional Monarchy'.

Msg event.pngThe Slave Trade


The second issue was about the slave trade. Slavery is widespread in the states and twenty-five of the Convention's fifty-five delegates owns slaves, with slaves comprised about one-fifth of the population of the states. The Southern states own the majority of slaves and the agrarian economy is based on slave labor. Many of the Southern delegates are unwilling to accept any proposals that might threaten the institution. The slave trade was discussed, a new fugitive slave clause that would require slaves who escaped to another state to be returned to the owner in the state from which they escaped and if the slave trade should be abolished.

The Southern states are against the abolition of slave trade, should we risk their wrath or should we let it be?

Msg event.pngImpeachable Offenses


The third issue discussed was which offenses should be impeachable and how the laws should be written. A rather harsh law, where death penalty is issued for murderers and long prison sentences for other offenses, was suggested. Some of the delegates sought endorsement for a medium law, with prison sentences and fines being the primary punishments. There were those that thought that each state should be able to set their own laws for offenses, and suggested mild laws that each state could build upon. Mild laws, with short prison sentences and hefty fines, were another suggestion.

What should the Thirteen States vote for?

Msg event.pngBenjamin Franklin


'The First American', a title earned by the polymath Benjamin Franklin for his campaigning for colonial unity and in many ways exemplifying the emerging American nation, is one of the founding fathers of the United States. During his years as an advisor to USA he has fundamentally defined the American ethos, a marriage of the practical values of thrift, hard work, education, community spirit, self-governing institutions, and opposition to authoritarianism both political and religious, with the scientific and tolerant values of the Enlightenment. Without Franklin's endless work and energy, the United States of America would be a lesser nation.

Msg event.pngFur Trade


The natives of North America has always traded and sold animal furs, and the Europeans colonizing America started participating in the trade from the beginning of their arrival. The British established trading post early and it has become one of the main economic ventures in North America. The fur trade in USA has gotten a set-back in recent years, and although Europe is screaming for furs the supply from USA is steadily lessening. If we would be able to capitalizing on this trade and remove the British stranglehold over it, our nation would flourish.

Msg event.pngCultural assimilation of Native Americans


George Washington and Henry Knox have formulated a policy to encourage the assimilation of Native Americans and transform their culture to European-American culture. Education is the primary method in the acculturation process for minorities and the immigrants from Europe has caused a growing public support for education to encourage a standard set of cultural values and practices for the majority of citizens to share. The six-point plan for civilization as formulated by George Washington:
1. impartial justice toward Native Americans
2. regulated buying of Native American lands
3. promotion of commerce
4. promotion of experiments to civilize or improve Native American society
5. presidential authority to give presents
6. punishing those who violated Native American rights.

Msg event.pngUnion Fire Company


Nicknamed 'Benjamin Franklin's Bucket Brigade', the Union Fire Company is a volunteer fire department formed in 1736 after Franklin and other had pointed out the need for a more effective handling of fires in a couple of publications in the 'Pennsylvania Gazette'. The company is limited to thirty members who meet eight times a year. Together with the 'Hand in Hand Fire & Life Insurance Society', the Union Fire Company bought a fire bell in 1752 which they placed on Fourth Street. When the bell rings it can be heard throughout the city. To stop fire, the Company uses buckets, ladders and two hooks but they have plans on buying a fire hose. As the Company is a bit short on funds at the moment and the members have already paid their fees, a grant from the government would be appreciated and the bigger the grant, the longer the fire hose.

Msg event.pngWhiskey Rebellion


Alexander Hamilton, the treasury secretary, has established a new tax as part of his program to increase central government power and to fund his policy of assuming the war debt of those states which had failed to pay. The farmers who use their leftover grain and corn in the form of whiskey as a medium of exchange are forced to pay a new tax, and many resists this. They contend that they are fighting for the principles of the American Revolution, in particular against taxation without local representation, while we the government maintains that the taxes are the legal expression of the taxation powers of Congress.
The resistance developed into a rebellion when a marshal arrived in western Pennsylvania to serve writs to distillers who had not paid the excise. 500 armed men attacked the fortified home of tax inspector General John Neville. George Washington managed to quell the rebellion but the resistance against the tax is still strong.

Seeking refuge from the fire, residents pour into the streets. In the grassy town commons the refugees feel safe enough to turn around and see what damage the fire has brought upon their city.

Establish financial order, clarity and precedence in and of the newly formed United States.
Establish credit—both in country and overseas—for the new nation.
To resolve the issue of the fiat currency, issued by the Continental Congress immediately prior to and during the United States Revolutionary War — the 'Continental'.

Msg event.pngWomen in the American Revolution


The Homespun Movement urges women to weave and spin their own cloth to provide clothes for their families instead of wearing or purchasing clothing made of imported British material. During the Independence War, the movement was a form of resistance against Great Britain. The denouncement of silks, satins, and other luxuries in favor of homespun clothing sent a strong message of unity against supposed British oppression. The Continental Army, led by George Washington, was provided with clothing and blankets by the Homespun Movement.
The Edenton Tea Party was fifty-one women in Edenton, North Carolina who signed an agreement officially agreeing to boycott tea and other English products and sent it to British newspapers. There have been many examples of women and their efforts to free the United States from the British suppression, and today we honor and thank them for their support and struggle.

Msg event.pngShays' Rebellion


The post-war economic depression brought about financial difficulties, a credit squeeze caused by a lack of hard currency and fiscally harsh government policies to solve the state's debt problems. Many war veterans has protested against this and shut down county courts to stop the judicial hearings for tax and debt collection. The farmers have no hard currency to pay for goods and the merchants has refused to extend lines of credit to them, which has led to some losing their land and other possessions when they are unable to fulfill their debt and tax obligations. This has led to strong resentments against tax collectors and the courts, where creditors obtained and enforced judgments against debtors, and where tax collectors obtained judgments authorizing property seizures. A militia has been raised as a private army, to begin organizing an armed force. Amending the Articles of Confederation would ease the pressure on these farmers and give them some means to provide for themselves...

Msg event.pngUS. Presidential Election of 1796


Campaign and the Issues, 1796: Federalist flocked under the banner of John Adams, who vowed to reinforce Washington's Strong Government. Jefferson and the Anti-Federalists opposed the growing government and rode the wave of popular fears of insidious royalism. Adams supporters retaliated by condemning the French Revolution as Monocracy, the former cherished by the Anti-Federalists. The Anti-Federalists on the other hand still viewed England as the principal enemy and said that Adams was going to pay lip service to Her Majesty's Government. Washington's support and the New Englanders effort to stop Alexander Hamilton from sabotaging Adams campaign gave Adams a marginal electoral victory, 71-68.

In July 1798 President Adams approved legislation levying federal taxes on property. This had consequences. The most obvious was the Fries Rebellion of 1799, a group of armed Pennsylvanians resisted tax assessors and collectors. But it also created a great debate of the limits of power of government that never ended, but continues up to this day and beyond. However, depending on the political position of the President and the representatives in Congress a different legislation package could have been approved. How will you choose, Mr. President?

Msg event.pngUS. Presidential Election of 1800


Campaign and the Issues, 1800: The Federalists urged voters to choose God - and a religious President (Adams) over Jefferson - and no God. Initially the Federalists monopolized the media thanks to the Sedition Act that outlawed most opposition as treason. Though this Act was also the rallying point of the Anti-Federalists, or the Republicans, as they were now called as James Madison had written the controversial Virginia and Kentucky Resolution in 1798-1799 which declared the Sedition Act unconstitutional. At a late stage the majority in New York changed and the new electoral votes changed the balance into the favor of Jefferson. However as the nominally vice presidential candidate Aaron Burr got the same number of electoral votes as the Jefferson, Burr later forced the issue to a vote in the House which was eventually won by Jefferson. The Electoral Votes: Jefferson 73, Burr 73, Adams 65. How will the Spirit of America choose this time?

Msg event.pngUS. Presidential Election of 1804


Campaign and the Issues, 1804: President Jefferson handily checked a feeble challenge from the dying Federalist Party. The Party had been severely damaged by a radical group within called the Essex Junta, which had tried in vain to enlist some eastern seaboard states to secede from the union forming a New England Confederacy free of Jeffersonian Democracy. Among the elites of the country many still supported the Federalists and Pinckney, but the masses were discouraged by the behavior of the Junta. The Biggest Issue was the Louisiana Purchase as Federalists feared that more immigrants (Jefferson-supporters that is) would break the balance of power at the expense of the Federalists. Thus Jefferson made significant inroads in once solidly Federalist New England and victory was his. Electoral Votes: Jefferson 162, Pinckney 14. How will the Spirit of America choose this time?

As Secretary of State he had been handled the Embargo which was both retaliation against French and British disrespect and a policy of Protectionism. The Embargo was very unpopular in both camps, thus the Federalists once again revitalized under Charles Pinckney and Free-Trade Republicans threatened to support the republican vice presidential candidate George Clinton. The Free-Trade threat never materialized and although Pinckney did well he could not compete with the popularity of former President Jefferson.

Msg event.pngHawks and Doves of 1812


During the years up to the War of 1812 the British had never respected the independence of the United States de facto. Great Britain disrespected US neutral rights at sea and impressed American seamen and confiscated the goods of her ships at sea. She also encouraged and supported Indian Unrest in the West. This together with the fact that some American gentlemen like Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun lobbied aggressively for war in an effort to exploit the opportunity to seize Canada made it hard for the President in International affairs. The Nation was though badly divided and when the President asked the Congress for a declaration of war (June1) the South and the West voted for and New England against. The war was not a great success for the United States military and the White House was bombarded by the Royal Navy. Only the Battle of New Orleans in 1815 was considered a victory. The war ended in a status quo peace, but it could very well have ended differently. Who will you choose Mr. President?

Madison's campaigners defended the war as necessary to establish American neutral rights. Madison was not that popular, but two things turned against Clinton. First, Clinton tried to appeal to hawks and doves alike making his position non-credible. Second, Madison was a president at war and people rallied to his defense.

Campaign and the Issues, 1816: There were no big issues. James Monroe was supported by two popular former presidents, Jefferson and Madison, and Monroe was a skilled tactician doing very little campaigning. The election was a sure thing all from the beginning as there were in fact only one efficient party, the Republicans. The Federalists existed, but was trashed from opposing the War of 1812 and had its voters in the New England area. Its organization and form was old and obsolete and it did not even officially nominate a candidate. It though supported Rufus King who put up only token opposition against the republican juggernaut. The Republicans was on the other hand an all-American movement with strong bases in New York, Virginia and in the South from which it campaign with skill and effect. Four republican presidential terms in a row had strengthened the party proportionally to the decline of the Federalists. James Monroe won a walk-over even if it was not as superior as his victory in 1820 where he grabbed all electors but one. Electoral Votes: Monroe 183, King 34.

Msg event.pngAdams-Onís Treaty


During the First Seminole War (1817-1818) US forces had attacked Seminole Indians and fugitive slaves in Florida that had raided Georgia and massacred residents. To root out the problem General Andrew Jackson burnt villages and overthrew the Spanish governor. This episode convinced the Spanish government that the United States was capable of seizing Florida at will. This belief grew so strong that the Spanish government offered Florida to the United Sates for a lump sum of money. The agreement was finalized by U.S. Secretary of State John Quincy Adams and Spanish Minister Luis de Onis. Mr. President, should we heed the offer?
