Rights, Responsibilities, and Leadership in Colonial America Or ... Lead, Follow, or Get Out Of The Bay! Leaders Should Be Few and Well Chosen
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Unit on Responsibilities and Leadership in Colonial America. The period of the American Revolution was a time during which our constitution and founding principles were developed for the United States of America. A spirit of nationalism in its pluralistic form was emerging. Our present-day policies, struggles, and celebrations have roots in this Revolutionary Period. Dream seekers and dream keepers have perpetually preserved and modified the dreams of our colonial ancestors. During this time, new ideals proposed by colonial leaders inspired their fellow countrymen to make radical changes in thinking, take life threatening risks, and endure hardships in order to create a new vision for self-government and human rights.
