In May of 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue All that were sent were very bold They sought 3 things: God, Glory, and Gold. The English came, 1607 that's true, But the colonists, they had no clue They learned independence from one John Smith, and the House of Burgesses settled all tiffs. The pilgrims followed, and soon after that in 1620 wrote the Mayflower Compact.The rule of law was a major tool, no kings for them- they wanted self rule. Then in 1754, things went down with French and Indian war. The war was costly; it cost a lot The king needed money so taxes so taxes he brought.
