Alexander Calder HYT 131- United States History To 1877 Mr. Miller Due On: November 13, 2006 Essay #2 Revolutionary Change in Ordinary People Throughout American history ordinary people have done extraordinary things. Wither it was normal men or women making changes through political standings, group behavior, revolutionary thinking or simply living through the changes around them. This essay will look at regular people going through the revolution in American happening between the 1750s- 1820s. After the American Revolution society was at a stand still, the question of: “Now what?” was on everybody’s mind in one way or another. Yes independence was won, but how was the nation going to be set-up, how was power going to be placed, who would run the country? Americans knew what they wanted to become, Not England… They wanted to be American, whatever that might entail. The government was to be set-up in any way but Democratic or a Monarchy. Regular people came to the forefront to toss around how the new nation should be established. With the input of great thinkers all members of the 2 nd Continental Congress decided that states should create their own Constitutions. Yet at the same time normal American citizens were just trying to survive.
