1780’s America was a country at the close of the war.A war that was not so much won by America’s revolutionaries as simply given up by the British.The country consisted of a patchwork of states geld loosely by a common bond (their fight for independence) whose threads quickly unraveled as each state was faced with the heavy burden of repaying its depts and one government was left with the task of governing a nation.One major problem for the government was how to allow personal freedom and liberty without falling into a state of anarchy; and another was how to create laws that help govern and protect its people without becoming another monarchy.It was during this time that great men lived.They were industrious men who helped shape the country each leading the way to financial independence, westward expansion, and a strong government whose model still exists today.
