In Jonathan Boucher’s Argument against Independence he claims that Christians as a  whole should not go against “human ordinances.” Boucher also goes on to say that his reasoning  for this was that if they went against human ordinances, they would also be going against God.  Boucher say “Obedience to the government is every man’s duty, because it is every man’s  interest” especially Christians.  He claims that trying to gain independence and liberty is actually  going against liberty. In this reading I learned that not everyone views independence and  freedom the same way. I also learned that when you fight for independence some people think  you are going against God. I would like to discuss the way that they thought you were going  against God if you wanted independence. In the Articles of Confederation the Delegates of the States go through and list the states;  rights, abilities, and securities, the duties of Congress, and the finances of the United States of  America. They made sure to make it clear what the states could and could not do. If they could  not do something on their own they could ask for permission or help from Congress. There were  of course certain circumstances where the states could act for themselves to protect their state but those are just a few special cases. They also made it clear what Congress was allowed to do and  what they were not allowed to do. I learned what the setup for the States and Congress was like  in the beginning time period for the USA. I also learned how some finances were handled before  the USA became the USA and how those depts. transitioned over when it became the USA. I  would like to discuss how the duties of the States and Congress has changes through out time. In John Quincy Adams speech on the Role of National Government he discusses the  debts owed to other countries for their contributions to the United States success. He also talked  about how we should honor those who have explored and he says that we should show an  affectionate remembrance for these people. He continues and says we need more people like this  to go exploring along the Pacific Oceans coast. He explains that we have to make advances in  sciences. I learned that our nation wanted to be a front runner in every aspect it could be. I would like to discuss the explorations by the public that happened after this speech.  US HISTORY -1877 Week 1 Notes  Before America was “founded”  People came to the Americas from Siberia about 15 Thousand years ago  Mayan People  300-900 A.D.  Pyramids, Agri, Staple Crops-beans,maize,& squash  Agri surplus allowed them to specialize in other things  Developed a calender.  Yucatan is important part.  The collapse of the mayan culture is a point of argument.  The Aztecs  Bloomed in the Valley of Mexico from the 15 Century  An estimated population of 5 million – 20 million.  Built cities & farmed vast fields  The lower class(outskirts living) people were forced to work  Gained safety on islands (ex.
