The purpose of this Webquest is to provide more information to students about the early days of the United States of America, after we became a free nation, in order for them to be able to write a realistic short fiction set during this time period.


There wasn't always a United States of America. It took an extraordinary cast of people to help form the nation we live in today. In this WebQuest, you will get to find out more about these early figures and how they influenced America. Then, you will write a fictional short story using what you have learned!
