1.) Discuss and analyze the development of European colonies (you could include the Spanish, French and Dutch or just discuss the English) from their inceptions to the 1790s from the perspective of Native American peoples. In other words, how would the history of European colonization along the Atlantic Coast read if told from a Native American perspective? What important events would guide this narrative? Cover as many regions and Native American peoples of North America as you can to answer this question. Please do not write as an individual Native American.
2.) Describe and analyze the political development of the English colonies from 1607 to the1790s. Discuss the English legal system as it was transported to the colonies and how the colonials steadily changed the definitions and meanings of many of these English ideals such as liberty, freedom, equality, citizenship, voting, and rights. Be sure to include a discussion of the American Revolution and the debate over the U.S. Constitution.
