The Original Purpose of the United States. In the later 18th century, British colonists living in the 13 American colonies carried out a revolution against their king and his government. After they successfully won their independence from that government, they needed to create a new government to replace it. They had to think about what kind of future they wanted and tried to design a new government to help them accomplish their goals.
This essay asks you to think about: the goals that the American revolutionaries envisioned for their new country when they created the United States of America, how they tried to design their new government in a way that would help to achieve those goals, and to compare the new government that they created with the old government that they had rebelled against.
Question: The country of the United States of America was originally created to achieve what purpose ( future goal)?
