What Does "Freedom" mean? By Sophia anna and julia

Early Colonies

The early colonies had the freedom of having their own town meetings, the ability to be a practicing Prodistant (a different type in different regions) and to purchase their own land.


During the Revolutionary period, freedom meant having a representation in governement. This meant ceeding from Britain due to the taxation without representation (Like the tax on tea!)


The founding of the constitution led to white men having a voice. It boosted our freedom from Great Britain, and we gave up little freedoms for the greater good.

Early America

There were many new economic and social freedoms and opportunities, as well as new ideas that resulted from the Second Great Awakening. Freedom was now defined as the ability to make choices for oneself.
