7 pages in length. Tracing this country's political roots provides one the opportunity to better understand how certain governmental branches hold significantly more authority over others when it comes to issues of war and power. Two hundred twenty-five years ago, when the Constitution of the United States was created, the concept of war was just as prevalent as it is today. Distribution of power was of great concern for the founding fathers, many of whom were divided over constitutional ratification and what the Federalist Papers represented. The historic importance of such issues is explicitly documented in Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America, which stands as the conduit between struggles of early America and how the country stands today. Evaluating three separate Web sites allows the student to more fully understand how intertwined these issues truly are. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
