The United States of America was never truly "founded" as much asit was declared independent from the Kingdom of Great Britain onJuly 4, 1776. This date marks the signing of the Declaration of Independencewritten by Thomas Jefferson. This colonies were governed under theArticles of Confederation un…til the adoption of the USConstitution, completed on September 17, 1787. __________________________________________________________________ The 13 British colonies broke away from Great Britain on 4 July1776 and became 13 free and independent states or 13 littlenations. From 4 July 1776 to 3 March 1789, there was no autonomoussovereign called the United States of America. There was aconfederation (alliance like NATO is today) of states under theArticles of Confederation but it did not establish the UnitedStates as a nation-state entity (autonomous sovereign). The UnitedStates of America as an autonomous sovereign started on 4 March1789. So the real birthday or start date of the United States is 4March 1789. 4 July 1776 is Independence Day, which is correct andthat is what you see on calendars. But our country was beingexplored well before 1630, like I said we were officially declaredfree from Great Britain on July 4, 1776. ( Full Answer )

Importance of Constitution . \nThe Constitution of the United States created a form of government known as federalism. The national and state governments each has specific powers and functions while also sharing some of the same powers. The Constitution made the agreement and any laws passed und…er the Constitution, the supreme law of the land. Three separate branches were created, the legislative, executive, and judicial. Each branch had specific powers while also having the ability to check the powers of the other two branches. The national government was given the power to tax and to enforce its laws. It created a judicial system in which the Supreme Court of the United States would have the final say as to the constitutionality of laws. \nA system of checks and balances tied the three branches of government together under the Constitution and the legislature became a truly representative body representing the people. An important feature of the Constitution was that it could be amended to change with the times.\nThe Articles of Confederation had created a confederation of independent states, not a nation. Under the Constitution, the balance of power shifted to the federal government, and led to a feeling of nationalism and patriotism, as exemplified in the War of 1812. ( Full Answer )
