This paper emphasizes the economic stance of America during the 18th century. It covers how farms survived and how money was the focal point of the transition for America from an agricultural country to an industrial country. The author argues that the events surrounding American history from 1863-1877 were shaped by this transformation, and from converting from a nubile state into one that was focusing it's future on the liberation of workers, women and children in the 18th century.
From the Paper:"Benjamin Franklin would prove to be one of the most important authors of this era. His self-taught determination would lead him to own his own publishing shop, and there by further the cause of literature itself. It was, however, a single document that would secure his place among the important American writers: The Declaration of Independence. (NAAL 2003) This document sent to King George III of England would mark the beginning of the end of the British control over the Americas. Though he was an ambassador and politician, it was this act that gave Franklin the place in history he now holds.
"Thomas Paine would also find his fame in politics. His penning of the pamphlet: Common Sense would press for the colonists to separate from the British Empire as a matter of economic sense. Though he would return to England after the war for independence, Paine would have to flee to France following his publication of Rights of Man, an attack on the monarchy and hereditary rule. (NAAL 2003)"
