SOCIAL SCIENCE 8

AMERICAN HISTORY

WEEK IN REVIEW

We learned a lot about the American form of government and it's basic principles. But now is the test of the government. George Washington would be the first leader to set the standard for future presidents. He knew that everything he did was being watched locally and world wide. He carefully thought about each and every decision, knowing that his leadership could allow the nation to grow or die. Washington also seemed to deeply regret his reliance on slavery, as we are reading about his relationship with his personal slave, Billy Lee, n the book In the Shadow of Liberty. This week, we will continue down the path of discovery about the foundations of our nation.
