This is proved in doc I which is a piece from the federalist written by James Madison. This piece Madison is trying to persuade the people to help him form a new government. He states that you must first enable the government to control the governed. This also proved by writing the constitution. The constitution took place of the articles of confederation and set up a stronger federal government. The government finally came with peace with the Indians are offering and basically begging for the government to come to peace with them and form an allliance. From this on can infer thy the native indians extremely wants peace with the new country. The American revolution fundamentally changed American society socially (docs a, h, d). The interactions with women of labor. Document a is a picture of a woman holding a gun with an apron on and a bugle. Before the American revolution women generally worked in the house an kept the kids. But, because of the American revolution women had to perform a mans role.
