1) Do you think growing apart between Great Britain and her North American colonies was inevitable? Why or why not?
Respond using illustrations and examples from our reading to back your perspective.
2) It is 1787. The Philadelphia Convention that was to revise the Articles of Confederation has met.
Instead of revising the Articles of Confederation the 55 delegates from 13 states that met in Philadelphia developed an entirely new document , the Constitution of the United States.
39 of the delegates signed the document. The national debate is now should the states ratify this new document so it becomes the “law of the land”?
If you were living in 1787 what would you support?
Would you be for the Constitution as a Federalist or would you be against the new document and side with the Anti-Federalists?
Explain your choice using facts from Chapters 5 and 6a and Module 6 to support your answer.
