The colonist fought the British army at Concord to defend the barn where all of there good weapons were. Concord was the second battle of the Revolution. The colonist sent the British running. Colonist hid in trees and behind rocks waiting to pop out and shoot the British. This battle helped America get started because the colonist showed the British that we are not going down without a fight and it helped the colonist regain confidence so that we could win the war. In 1775 the war had begun!
In 1776, the colonist declared independence from England. A few people who wrote the Consitution are James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and John Adams. Most people were nervous to sign the Declaration of Independence because people did not want King George and his army to demolish them. The Declaration of Independence helped America become a country because it told Britain that we are declaring our freedom from Britan. Now we celebrate our independence from Britan on July 4th now known as Independence Day!
In 1803, United states offered to by New Orelans from France. The United States offered 10 million but Fance had different ideas they were so broke from fighting in a different battle so they offered the hole Louisiana teritory for 15 million and the United States accepted. The Louisiana Purchase helped America become a country because it doubled the size and it made our country bigger. Also we could now trade with different countrys because we owned the Missouri River.
