We made a huge move by declaring independence. This was in 1776. This picture was when we were in court.
This was the actual declaration of independence. It was a bunch of fancy words. This was a big step to me because it was a bold move.
This was when Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock and others were coming up with the writing for the declaration.
The War of 1812 was when the British were disobeying the Treaty of Paris and stealing our ships and ship slaves. War hawks were some individuals that were ready and wanted the British out of our territory. The war hawks were born when England was at war with us in 1775 that is why they wanted war with the British.
