DeVry HIST 405 State Constitutions from 1776 Political History Lab\

 

This week, we’ve been discussing the foundations of America, especially in terms of conflicting cultures and religions. We’ve also taken a look at how the various colonies were governed and the beginnings of the Revolutionary War. In addition, you’ve had a discussion thread where you learned more about thinking and writing like an historian and understanding the different kinds of historical analyses. Using those newfound skills, especially those of a political historian, please review the following different state constitutions from 1776. Then, please write a two- to three-page essay that describes how these documents challenge, complement, or add another layer to what you read about in Chapter 5 of your textbook. How do these documents change or add to your understanding of the different forms of state government present in the Thirteen Colonies?

Please review these documents before you begin crafting your response.
