    Ms. Sue, how should I begin to try to find answers for these points.

  • us history -

    Study your text materials -- especially about the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution. If necessary Google each of these documents.

    Then, think about the needs of the Pennsylvania farmer. Would he favor states' rights or a strong federal government? Why?

    Thank you for the start.

    One last question....what is a philosophical ideal??

  • U.S. history -

    You're welcome.

    A philosophical ideal is a standard of perfection. It may exist only in the minds of people, but it is a goal that people strive to accomplish.
