    All Men Are Created Equal?

    All Men Are Created Equal?

    Overview

    America looked quite different in 1801 than it had in 1760. Thirteen separate colonies had become a nation with generous boundaries and an emerging identity. Idealistic principles espousing freedom and equality were becoming part of a national creed. While American Indians were being separated from the rest of the nation, women and African Americans had some hope that they might be included on a more equal basis.

    All Men Are Created Equal?

    Description: America looked quite different in 1801 than it had in 1760. Thirteen separate colonies had become a nation with generous boundaries and an emerging identity. Idealistic principles espousing freedom and equality were becoming part of a national creed. While American Indians were being separated from the rest of the nation, women and African Americans had some hope that they might be included on a more equal basis. Indeed, America did gain a future during the revolutionary era, and America's destiny would continue to be shaped by those who inherited the revolution. This video examines how the revolutionary era shaped America both at that time and for the future. In reflecting on the era, consider the major changes that had taken place between 1760–1801, particularly those relating to American identity and the concepts of freedom and equality. How does the revolutionary era continue to affect us today?
