Summary
  • [Introduction] -- Why is America called the "Land of the Free"? -- How was America going to be different than it was before the Revolution? -- Why did the founders start changing the Constitution right away? -- How does the Bill of Rights give us freedom to stand up for what we believe? -- With the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, America was a perfectly free country, right? -- Wait a minute- slavery is the opposite of freedom. How did it exist here in America? -- How were all the slaves finally freed? -- What about women? How did they get the right to vote too? -- How do people become American citizens and get freedoms and rights like the right to vote? -- What rights do children have and what does it mean for kids to be free? -- What does freedom have to do with how many hours you work or how much money you get paid at a job? -- With the "freedom from want, " was America truly the "land of the free"? -- How can we keep spreading and celebrating American freedom? -- Timeline -- Who's who -- Author's note
