I'm doing an essay in history class, and the question is Were the Americans more freer after the American Revolution. Think as if you are in the early years after the revolution and not 2006.
Yes, No? any points?
I am thinking about going with Yes, they are more free because , now they don't have to pay taxes, they can make their own goverment and rules , and at last they can live in society own their own terms.
For the taxes point i can write that this was one of the reasons the A.R happened , and now that they have won the war , they don't have to pay taxes on items which the Stamp Act , or the different acts enforced.
For the Own Government point , i was thinking of writing that now that they are a seperate entity from Britain, they can make and enforce they own rules and regulations. For example the works of the Constitution, they can now get together and decide on what the constitution should state.
However I do not know what to write for living in society on their own terms, can anyone give me any advice?
