You are a United States citizen living in the year 1787. You are among many others who left their homeland in search of a better opportunity. You did not agree with some of the laws of your homeland country. At this time, America consists of 13 colonies, or states that just fought Great Britian for independence. America now has to make its own rules. You want to make sure that the same rules from your homeland are not imposed here. You want freedom to make your own choices. You, along with other colonists, have been asked to find out about the new constitution. You don't really know what it is all about, but since the new rules will affect you and your family, you decide that you must find out as much as you can about this new constitution for yourself and your colony.
