Climate was used to justify slavery. "Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery-- the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization." -- Mississippi Declaration of Causes for Secession

From the Quebec Gazette, Aug 10, 1775 Transcribed as written (Bunker Hill, as it is now called) BOSTON, 26th of June, 1775 This town was alarmed on the 17th inst. at break of day, by a firing from the Lively ship of war; and a report was immediately spread that the rebels had broke ground, and were raising a battery on the heights of the peninsula of Charlestown, against the town of Boston. They were plainly seen, and in a few hours a battery of six guns played upon their works. Preparations were instantly made for the landing a body of men; and some companies of grenadiers and light infantry, with some battalions and field artillery, amounting in the whole to about 2000 men, under the command of Major General Howe, and Brigadier General Pigot, were embarked with great expedition, and landed on the peninsula without opposition; under cover of some ships of war, and armed vessels. The troops formed as soon as landed: The rebels upon the heights, were perceived to be in great force, and strongly posted. A redoubt thrown up on the 16th at night, with other works full of men, defended with cannon, and a large body posted in the houses of Charlestown, covered their right; and their left was covered by breastwork, part of it cannon proof, which reached from the left of the redoubt to the Mystick River. Besides the appearance of the rebels strength, large columns were seen pouring into their athitance; but the Kings troops advanced. The attack began by a cannonade, and notwithstanding various impediments of fences, walls &c. and the heavy fire they were exposed to, from the vast numbers of rebels, and their left galled from the houses of Charlestown, the troops made their way to the redoubt, mounted the works and carried it. The rebels were then forced from other strongholds, and pursued till they were drove clear of the peninsula, leaving five pieces of cannon behind them. Charlestown was set on fire during the engagement, and most part of it consumed. The loss they sustained, must have been considerable, from the vast numbers they were seen to carry off during the action, exclusive of what the suffered form the shipping. About a hundred were buried the day after and thirty found wounded on the field, some of which are since dead. About 170 of the Kings troops were killed, and since dead of their wounds; and a great many were wounded. This action has shown the bravery of the Kings troops, who under every disadvantage, gained a complete victory, over three times their number, strongly posted and covered by breastworks. But the fought for their King, laws, and Constitution. Quebec Aug. 10 There are many letters from Boston which assure us, that there were killed about a thousand of the rebel army, that they lost seven pieces of artillery, and a quantity of ammunition, and that among the killed were Colonel Gardiner, and Doctor Warren, President of the Provincial Congress; and after his Majesty's troops had obtained the victory, about a thousand of the rebels laid down their arms, and gone to their respective homes. Extract of a letter from a general officer at Boston, dated July 3. In the action of the 17th ult. the 52d regiment behaved so well as unenvied to gain the praise of the whole army, for their noble, cool spirited behavior that day, which may be equalled, but never can be out-done by any set of veterans on earth; in the midst of a heavy fire from the lines, being sixty yards distance, the men made ready to fire, but being thought to far off, on beating the first part of the General, recovered their arms very cooly, and march'd within twenty paces of the redoubt and lines, gave their fire, rush'd on instantly, and with their bayonets, got over the entrenchments, drove all before them, and made their way to the entrance of the redoubt, killing and putting to flight, all who came in their way, thereby clearing all obstacles to their followers. The loss of brave men were considerable; the Major, Captains Davison, Addison, and Smyth, Lieutenant Higgens and Ensign Graham, dead; Captain Neilson, Lieutenants Crawford, Thomson, and the Hon. Ensign Chetwynd, wounded. The victory was a dear purchase to the fifty-second regiment; nothing but the cause they were engaged in could console for the loss.

I may have heard of the Sand Creek Massacre years ago, but nothing of its particular slaughter of the real AMERICANS who were here on this land FIRST! I started to search for a Indian/White man war that happened at this time, because my family is lead to beleive there may have been at least ONE small Indian girl survivor of this shameful, disgusting, action on the part of the Calvary in the U.S. Army. That one small girl was believed taken by my ancestors (Casper family)and raised as their own. If this was true, that the Good Lord that she is now passed and hopefully never heard of this atrosity committed on these AMERICANS.

I think that the idea of making slave codes was ridiculous. They were scared that the slaves would rebel so they made a list of new codes and laws. But if the slaves were going to rebel what made them think that breaking these new codes would be out of the question, like they were going to attack and kill the slave owners but these simple new tasks that were no longer allowed would be something that they would follow and obey these new rules. I think that making these rules would only in rage the African Americans even further and push them to rebel.

I studied the Nam war as we South Africans were fighting the Soviet backed Cubans in Angola.We were stopped 10 miles outside of Luanda.Political reasons.I think that the war in Vietnam was not lost by the military,but by the Politicians who were at the mercy of the Press.The Liberal movement applied the pressure (Hanoi Jane),comes to mind and many other celebrities who wanted to show what good human beings they were.Hanoi Jane should have been tried for treason as should so many others.My country was handed to a communist freedom fighting organization with the help of the Liberal brigade.Now I realize that some of my buddies died for nothing at the age of 17 years old.Others lost Limbs and some are bolted together with metal after driving over land mines.The list goes on.What the hell were we doing? We were told that the enemy was bad and we were fighting for Democracy,now we have Communist thieves plundering the country.The liberals? They have emigrated to Australia, England The USA and many other countries,because they would not live here.Now Vietnam was a war the USA fought where you were compelled to fight with one hang tied behind your back.The Commies were gutter fighters and the US had to fight according to the queensberry rules. Liberal Americans are like that.Maybe you could send them here so that can see how destructive they are.America is under attack again,this time it is right there in your back garden At the risk of sounding arrogant GET RID OF OBAMA!

I agree with AJM about George. He was a much more significant figure of the time than it seems now. I think it is good that you mention him actually, but it deserves more attention, especially since you didn't really find the essence of what George was saying and the issue that he brings up is more important than ever, given the debt collapse built on housing speculation and the fact that there are more empty homes than homeless people. www.sfmuseum.org/hist9/hgeorge.html
U.S. History must not be taught without referring to the popularity of Henry George. It is criminal. Many have neglected the topic previously, but it cannot be forgiven of those who research him in sincerity even cursorily. Consider the sentiments of John Dewey, the father of American education, arguably, on Henry George as he relates to public education.

There is no clause in the constitution on "separation of church and state." It states that the government will NOT support a state religion. Like many countries in that time period one had to join a certain religous group to live in that country. Like Mexico when Texas was part of it required all immigrantes to be of the Catholic faith. So it was before the revolution in 1776, many colonies required one be a Quaker or of the Church of England, etc. That is what the admendment is for, and NOT a separation claus.

Hi i am a huge history enthusist and love thinking about the what if's of history. i have been pondering a scenario in my head and my gut tells me that i am right haha but then we all think our gut is right... but it is this... we all know and it is accepted fact that the vikings came to the new world, colonized, explored, and exploited North America some 500 years before colombus... but to what extent? vikings were known to travel massive distances in their ships, but we assume that once they got to the new world they stopped at newfoundland and didnt go any further... but i think thats crazy! i postulate, based on the reconstructed vinland map( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vinland_Map_HiRes.jpg) that they made it as far south as the yucatan penninsula. if we say that the river going inland is the saint-lawrence river going to the great lakes... then florida is a small bump just before the gulf of mexico... albeit the map is unrealistic in my interpretation for size it works enough for me to continue my thoughts. but what fuels my fascination is the legends of the aztecs, of bearded white men coming to visit. where else would aztecs see bearded white men? it is too much of a coincidence for me to pass lightly. just because archeology has not the physical proof does not matter to me. archeology was not there to witness history therefore it cannot be definitive, postulation and assumption have been the sciences greatest assets, while old thoughts recorded in books that remain unchanged are its greatest enemy ( and a great asset as well ;) ) but old ideas die hard and are not easily changed. they limit our range of thought and hinder us from exploring the possibilities. look to how far the vikings sailed ( the meditteranian amoung other far flung destinations) and from greenland to mexico doesnt seem so absured. science to me just like any establishment, fears change, for change gets rid of the old established ideas ( and the people paid to uphold those old ideas) and brings in the new. now its all postulation based on circumstantial evidence, but where did the beared white men that the aztecs spoke of come from? is it really that crazy to consider? or are we too wrapped up in old ideas to still teach that columbus discover the new world? ( greenland was a vassle to the scandinavian kings, had maps of its location, colombus only had to ask the norse where america was!)

Some of the facts are wrong. Brooks said, before attacking Sumner, "I have read your speech twice over carefully. It is a libel against South Carolina and against Mr. Butler, who is a relative of mine." Also, Preston Brooks was not restrained. He conspired with a fellow Congressman, Laurence Keitt, to prevent interference. When other Senators moved to aid Sumner, Keitt produced a revolver and said "Leave them be!" Sumner, who had been seated at a desk that had been bolted to the floor when Brooks attacked, ripped the desk from the floor and staggered away, blinded by his own blood. Brooks pursued continuing to beat Sumner with the cane. Sumner collapsed unconscious but Brooks stopped only after his cane broke.

Dear mg from Missouri- Though the internment of Japanese-Americans was unjust and completely against all that our nation stands for, it was definitely not "just like the holocaust." Japanese-Americans were not targets for extermination like Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, or other groups. Yes, they did lose their property in many instances, and they did suffer a temporary suspension of some of their civil liberties, but they were never victims of a "Final Solution." You need to do some extensive study into the nature of the Holocaust, as well as the history behind the internment of the Nisei during World War II. As for the website, it is fantastic!

I'm surprised to find a U.S. History online text here as well! I've been reading through the American Government one you provide and it's great! I just needed a chance to brush up on some stuff for my own personal benefits and I had such trouble finding some used books around so it's really a blessing to have access to it all right here. Wow..this one basically covers everything! Thanks a lot~ I really appreciate it =)

Your "history" of Puritans in America is soaked in cliches and utterly inadequate in its description of what was in fact a diverse group of people intent on reforming a society in England that was rife with excessive self-indulgence and which later sunk into civil war between the absolute monarchists and the Puritan parlimentarians. It's appalling that you would post this online as a resource for trusting children and teachers who do not have the time and resources to examine primary sources for themselves. It seems a deliberate attempt to denigrate a group of people who struggled and often died in the course of advancing ideals, such as public education and helping the poor, that have become core values in America. Anyone who has the time to examine early Puritan documents in the form of wills, petitions and church rolls will find that the role of women in Puritan society was much stronger and more influential than is stated in your website's analysis. I hope you can assign a better historian to provide a more accurate analysis in future.

i belive that abortion is a horrible thing. why blame the baby for the unsafe sex of the parents. its not ther fault that they werernt careful. the mother should just deal with there choise and have the baby. and they can always put the baby up for adoption. there are pleant of people in the world that would love to have a new baby. because a lot of wemon cant have children. im 13 and i already know that abortion should still be illigel. im pro-life and proud to be one!

I social studies, my class is learning about the colonist's reaction about the Intolerable Acts that were placed on Massechussets in 1774. They formed the continental congress, and that was claerly stated, but not all of the colonies showed up even to that. Georgia could not make it, but luckily Massachussets could still make it. Also, this site, oh how great it is does not include the place where the continental congress took place, but I already knew that it took place in Pennsylvania. I have a random fact of the day. New York was actually the first U.S. capital, and there were many more before it permenantly became Washington D.C. That is why there is a statue of George Washington there.

Thanks for the info..I had bought a kindle book titled "Blood on the Tracks"..while reading it I wasn't sure if it was an actual event..I learned more from this site about the "Great Upheaveal" of 1877. The parallels between that event and the Occupiers today on Wall street is fascinating.. and lends more irony, truth, to the old saying "Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it" What a coincidence to be, unknowingly, reading that while empathizing, (joining) the Occupiers

I was struck by the statistics for Antietam. More than 22,000 soldiers killed in one day! It's like seven 9/11s, except the population of the States was a fraction of what it is today, so the relative loss was so much greater.

I think the slaves deserve the right to live and to have a life just as much as the "white man" who thought they were better than everyone. Just because you are a different color doesn't mean your different than others. Don't give up to BE YOURSELF.Because who you are is who you will always be!

I actually visited Mesa Verde, and spoke with a descendent of the Pueblos. Although it is common belief that Anasazi tribes are who lived in the cliff dwellings, recent discoveries are showing it is the Pueblo Tribes that inhabited these amazing structures. Not only is it "recent discoveries", but the Pueblo descendents have been saying this for YEARS, ever since these sites were discovered. Also, most people pronounce " An-uh-sah-zee " This pronunciation actually means "ancient enemy" "nuh-sah-zee" is the proper pronunciation of this term. Anyway, I enjoyed learning about this, I thought I'd share. Feel free to comment, I'm not an expert by any means. ~CDR

I also have a tin lantern and a hammer from that era. It is incredible. A piece of history still intact.

An interesting view of Shay's Rebellion. It neglects to mention the farmers attempt to pay the debts owed with the local currency. Those to whom the debts were owed declined the currency as it had no value, instead requuring payment in gold or silver. The debtors only received the State produced currency for their labors, but were denied its use in the paying of debts. The State Courts found against the farmers and began confiscation of their farms. Hence, the rebellion.

There is current discussion about doing away with the Electoral College.

I have studied American History, especially Modern American Military History for more than 40 years and I think this is a great site for some insightful historical data. I was checking out the section on the Vietnam War and there is a posting at a blog military history of the 20th century that has a great article written by Senator James Webb, ex Secretary of the Navy about his experiences as a platoon leader in Vietnam and comparing his experiences to the generations that remained at home during the war. I think every one should read that article to get a very personal opinion of the war.
