Through our hard work and lives, the world knew we had the ability to stand alone as a strong nation. While, our international reputation of being a “peacekeeping” country the right to stand as an independent self-governing nation. But finally through the Canada Act, we stood solely independent from our Empire. It is obvious that the twentieth century provided us with great chances to become an independent strong nation.
When Amadas and Barlowe returned a year later with two natives, Manteo and Wanchese, all of Britain was excited with talk of the New World and its wonders.

Soon after, White came across a rough storm and was forced to return to England. Despite many attempts to return to Roanoke, White couldn't get the funding or resources to make the trip. Raleigh had finally given up hope of settlement and Jon White died many years later ignorant to the fate of his family and the colony.

Gradually, the place would be forgotten by Spanish colonists but not by locals. The citadel of Machu Picchu made its first world debut in 1913 when the first photographs of the city were published in the National Geographic magazine. This led to a significant recognition world wide that would eventually make that amazing city a World Heritage Site in 1983 and be pronounced one of the new seven world wonders. Since then, Machu Picchu became the most tourist destination in Peru and one of the most important worldwide.
However, all of the problems previously detailed could not be remedied because of the faulty system. As a result, the weak and ineffective Articles of Confederation were replaced. The transition may not have taken place as smoothly as could have been desired as detailed in The Anti-Federalists by Forrest McDonald. But the United States was heading in the right direction, towards a form of government that would evolve and lead the country profitably for over two-hundred years.

Once Quebec was asked to vote in a referendum on sovereignty before and of course, Quebecers wanted it. However, Canada denounced movement because Canadians consider that they can find new ways to reinforce duality of Canada and to protect Quebec’s distinctiveness within Canada. Quebecers raised actions for sovereignty several times, however, all were failed no matter through they increase support for sovereignty. Quebecers consider that Canadians will subsume their culture and languages under Canada’s English majority although Canada doesn’t intend so.

Another factor of the Articles' ineffectiveness was that Congress was in essence tied in its authority. After the war, the colonists trusted no ultimate authority; not even one they designed. It could not regulate commerce, so what resulted was thirteen colonies with different taxations and tariff laws. This only added to the already present feelings of dislike and distrust which had existed between the colonies since they were first established. After this period of eight years, the "Critical Period", the light at the end of the tunnel arrived with Thomas Jefferson writing the Constitution.
However, the realization of its ideas and an improvement of federal government and states representatives were not successful enough. On the other hand, the government under the Constitution was radically different from the one under the Articles of Confederation. United State's economical, political, cultural, and social aspects and statuses changed under the new type of powerful government, with different type of voting, and by the new way of levying taxes. Constitution of the US prevented people from gaining too much power, and it was the greatest success of the US government.
British empire started in 1707 and collapsed in 1990. After Portugal and Spain started conquering the world during the 15th and 16th century, the British government became envious of these two nations. Thus they decided to set up their own colonies and trade routes at the same time as France and the Netherlands. The very first voyage was done by John Cabot and was requisitioned by the King VII in 1496. Although Cabot believed that he had reached Columbus’s Newfoundland, he had actually landed in Asia.
When made military governor of Montreal in 1760 and Commander-In-Chief of British forces in North America in 1763, he did show great administrative talents.
