Jefferson and The New Republic

Creating a new nation 1783-1815:  The American colonies went though a few steps before they became a new nation, the United States of America. The first step was to obtain independence from England. The second step was to convert the 13 colonies into 13 states with a central government. The third was to convince the 13 states to agree to a republic instead of a monarchy as the legal system of government (no kings).
