The General Welfare & Commerce Clauses are two of the most abused portions of the Constitution; used to expand federal power beyond the limited and defined scope delegated through the Constitution. Learn what the writers of the Constitution had to say about these clauses and the discussions they had about the limits of federal power.
America's founders suffered through decades of a lawless and oppressive British government trampling the colonists' rights. For much of that time, the colonists petitioned and pleaded with their government while remaining loyal to the crown. However, there came a time when their sight shifted to separation and independence, then finally armed conflict. Several major events contributed to the sentiment toward independence. Four of those events are covered in this course: The Regulators War in North Carolina, The Liberty Pole Skirmishes & The Battle on Golden Hill in New York, The Boston Massacre, and the Gaspee Affair in Rhode Island.
Course includes PDF workbook you can download, print and use as a study guide.
