Founding of America
It was October 1492, when Christopher Columbus and his crew
Encountered America though, He wasn’t the first one to reach it His voyages lead to the first long lasting relationship
Between America and Europeans, plus there were others on the scene
Millions of people who lived there way before they came Although they didn’t really have a name
Columbus called them Indios, Spanish for Indians Understand this led to the colonization of foreign lands For centuries to come, their work was never done They intended to expand, ’Til America was one
For the tribes who lived there, the Spanish explorers Left four major legacies that go down in history Horses, metal tools, and firearms But the biggest impact, slash threat was disease
This is how it all began (uh-oh) Looking for new land (uh-oh-oh) After all the devastation (yea-yea) We built a new nation
United States of America (America)
Was the country we made for us (made for us)
We declared our independence in 1776
John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay
Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and George Washington
Yeah, these were the men, who created the Constitution, that hopes to define Our liberty the core of America if you’re feeling me This is how the amendments came about
One through twenty-seven and that was the full count
You also got the Preamble
An introduction to the Constitution and what it stands for And if you read further you will see, they created branches of the government to be They were divided up in articles
But this was just a particle of the whole picture The most important thing they did, you’ll see before we finish Is they created, the Declaration of Independence
On July 4th 1776, there was a statement created and now exists In a document, that announced
That the thirteen American Colonies, were no longer bound By the British Empire, they were independent states They used it as a way to explain Why Congress on July 2nd, declared independence from Great Britain,
Now listen, this was a year later
After the American Revolutionary war
And after ratifying the text on July 4th
They issued the document in several different forms Initially published and printed and distributed to the public To read and witness, but the most famous version
That comes to be is a signed copy that you could see Displayed at the National Archives in Washington D.C.
