Stoker 1 Greg Stoker Dr. Seabold POLI-101 September 24, 2007 How were the basic ideas that led to the Revolution transformed into documents that provide the framework for American government? What do the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution have in common? What are some of the differences you note? At the heart of the American Revolution, there were key ideas and grievances that were transformed into the documents that provide the framework for American government today. Many of the colonists had originally left England to escape religious persecution. This led to many of the amendments seen in the bill of rights that protect freedom of speech and religion. The settlers were also tired of the British sending over troops and forcibly housing them anywhere they chose. The Bill of Rights made it illegal to force a person to quarter a soldier in their home. The British government also had a tyrannical rule over the colonies, with unfair laws and large taxes. This is what led the framers to limit the government as much as possible.
