Welcome to my website
U.S. History- Welcome to 8th grade US History and 7th grade World History. This year we will be traveling in time from the creation of the United States through the Civil War. We will meet the founding fathers, witness the creation of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution, watch as our 3-branch system of government is formed, and experience what Americans experienced during the most difficult times of our country's existence.
World History will travel around the globe, from ancient Rome, to Medieval Europe, to the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, and to the America's. Our journey will take us from ancient times to the Renaissance.
Students will be responsible for completing all assignments on time, bringing all materials to class, and participating in all activities. I am looking forward to a wonderful year ahead.
We are here:
US History Chapter 3-The Spirit of Independence Through a decade of angry exchanges, it became obvious that the colonies and Britain had different ideas and goals. When the sides could not find a compromise, colonial representatives met in Philadelphia to boldly declare independence. During the next six years, mighty Great Britain sent armies of mercenaries while the colonies scrounged to keep an army on the field. George Washington kept his army intact until an opportunity arose to capture the British Army at Yorktown. The British government had to give in when its people lost heart in this long battle.
World History Chapter 1-Rome and the Rise of Christianity Crises in the third century and the rise of Christianity gradually brought a transformation of the Roman Empire in the fourth and fifth centuries C.E. As the western part of the Roman Empire disintegrated, the Eastern Roman Empire, also known as the Byzantine Empire, flourished. After the collapse of the Roman Empire in the West, the Roman Catholic Church, as the Christian church was called, developed an organized government under the leadership of the Bishop of Rome, who became known as the pope. In the East, the Byzantine Empire developed its own form of worship known as the Eastern Orthodox Church.
