Egypt's revolution is more important so far than the American revolution, argues a US historian.
Sam Haselby is a visiting assistant professor of American Studies at the American University of Beirut. Eighteenth-century New England lawyers and Chesapeake planters proved skillful and adept at governing, constitution-writing, and state-building. They were good at these things, in part, precisely because they had not been oppressed. How will the Egyptians fare in the process of building a representative government responsible to the rule of law?  It remains to be seen.  But they have the opportunity, as well as the world’s attention. Essam Sharaf speaks to thousands of pro-democracy campaigners who had gathered in centre of Cairo after Friday prayers. Despite improvements in education access, many rural children are still pressed into work to supplement family income. As part of a growing cooperative movement in New York, two groups of immigrant women drive business and redirect power.
Indigenous Panamanians fail to benefit from country's growing wealth and dispute notion that money equals riches. Presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori carries the burden of her father's involvement in forced sterilisations. Congressional committee votes 38-27 to recommend impeaching President Dilma Rousseff as major political crisis deepens.
Fathi Zaydan, official responsible for the Palestinian camp of Mieh Mieh in Sidon, was killed while leaving a meeting.
Written after battles of Lexington and Concord and explained why colonies had a right to declare their independence. There are things that happen in the world that are bad, and you want to do something about them. Nobody ever knows exactly how many people die in wars, but it’s likely that 25,000 to 50,000 people died in this one. In the year before those famous shots were fired, farmers in Western Massachusetts had driven the British government out without firing a single shot.
So when you look at the American Revolution, there’s a fact that you have to take into consideration. Did ordinary white farmers have the same interest in the revolution as a John Hancock or Morris or Madison or Jefferson or the slaveholders or the bondholders? Do you know that there were mutinies in the American Revolutionary Army by the privates against the officers? Once a historical event has taken place, it becomes very hard to imagine that you could have achieved a result some other way.


Immerse yourself in the years of friction, fear, and turmoil that preceded the American Revolution.

From 2007 to 2010 he was a junior fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows, and he has recently finished The Origins of American Religious Nationalism, 1776-1832, a book about religion and nationalism in revolutionary and early republic America. Luckily the French and Americans had become allies in order to assist each other in this battle. They had assembled by the thousands and thousands around courthouses and colonial offices and they had just taken over and they said goodbye to the British officials. No, in fact, the Indians were unhappy that we won independence from England, because England had set a line—in the Proclamation of 1763—that said you couldn’t go westward into Indian territory. When you assess and evaluate a war, when you assess and evaluate any policy, you have to ask: Who gets what? America started off as a society of rich and poor, people with enormous grants of land and people with no land. The officers were getting fine clothes and good food and high pay and the privates had no shoes and bad clothes and they weren’t getting paid. War is by definition the indiscriminate killing of huge numbers of people for ends that are uncertain. When something is happening in history it takes on a certain air of inevitability: This is the only way it could have happened.
Surely, we should be able to understand that in between war and passivity, there are a thousand possibilities.
This unique performance provided an ample opportunity for enriched learning at a deeper, more meaningful level, motivating students to use critical thinking skills to assess the important people, events, and battles from the American Revolution.
Students used their researched information to create animated historical pictures, online scrapbooks, kerpoof pictures, comic strips, and online quizzes and games.
Each student took on a specific role within their work groups as they contributed to the final product.
British soldiers, took place because General Gage sent soldiers to confiscate all weapons(Paul Revere: "The British are coming!") but none were there to take.


That would be equivalent today to two and a half million people dying to get England off our backs.
And there were riots, there were bread riots in Boston, and riots and rebellions all over the colonies, of poor against rich, of tenants breaking into jails to release people who were in prison for nonpayment of debt.
Students created a play bill, a commercial, and marketing materials for Live from the American Revolution. Students researched their own questions as well as assignment-driven questions, and they evaluated the resources for authority and accuracy. But then came Lexington and Concord, and the revolution became violent, and it was run not by the farmers but by the Founding Fathers. That’s one thing we’re not accustomed to in this country because we don’t think in class terms.
They browbeat people and, oh yes, they inspired people with the Declaration of Independence. Through independent work centers, students produced animated historical pictures, online scrapbooks, kerpoof pictures, comic strips, and online quizzes and games. He had her killed and scapled by Native Americans, then hung her hair on the scouts' scalplocks. We think, “Oh, we all have the same interests.” For instance, we think that we all had the same interests in independence from England. When Britain was defeated in the Revolutionary War, that line was eliminated, and now the way was open for the colonists to move westward across the continent, which they did for the next 100 years, committing massacres and making sure that they destroyed Indian civilization. It’s always good, if you want people to go to war, to give them a good document and have good words: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
So many in the Pennsylvania line that George Washington got worried, so he made compromises with them. Of course, when they wrote the Constitution, they were more concerned with property than life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But later when there was a smaller mutiny in the New Jersey line, not with thousands but with hundreds, Washington said execute the leaders, and they were executed by fellow mutineers on the order of their officers.
All these projects, as well as the live performance of the play, which Channel 99 filmed and posted on School Matters, were posted on Mr. Stein’s interactive blog and inserted on an American Revolution GLOG for students, parents, and other teachers throughout Virginia to access.
