Put a check beside the original thirteen states which were "admitted" between 1787-1790.
The correct answer is the following.
The original thirteen states which were "admitted" between 1787-1790 were the following: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and Rhode Island.
The delegates that met at the Constitutional Convention of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from May to September 1787, knew they had the difficult task of defining the new dorm of government for the United States after the weak Articles of Confederation. After so many debates, they came up with the US Constitution, after James Madison drafted the Bill of Rights. The next step was the ratification of each state to approve the new COnstitution. And that is how those states became the first 13 admitted.

3.) I'm not sure. I don't want to guess and then you get it wrong.

Connecticut & New Hampshire have many things in common, including:
- Being one of the original 13 colonies
- Fighting for independence
- Located more towards the northern section (which meant a build up in factories and fishing industries)
Connecticut was established by Thomas Hook
New Hampshire was established by John Mason
Rode island was established by Roger Williams
Leaders. Governor John Haynes of the Massachusetts Bay Colony led 100 people to Hartford in 1636. He and Puritan minister Thomas are often considered the founders of the Connecticut colony.
The colony that became the state of New Hampshire was founded on the division in 1629 of a land grant given in 1622 by the Council for New England to Captain John Mason (former governor of Newfoundland) and Sir Ferdinando Gorges (who founded Maine).
Roger Williams founded the colony in 1636. He guaranteed religious and political freedom. Religious refugees from the Massachusetts Bay Colony settled in Rhode Island. It was one of the most liberal colonies.
its connecticut i did the test!
Rhode Island and Maine were colonies that were once part of Massachusetts.
In 1620 the first English settlers in Massachusetts founded the Plymouth colony. Other colonizers followed the steps of these pioneers establishing new colonies in New England. In 1630 the Massachusetts Bay Colony was founded in the current Boston territory under a royal statute. In 1636 Roger Williams founded the colony of Rhode Island. In 1691 the colonies of the Bay of Massachusetts and the one of Plymouth were united with the present territory of Maine forming the Province of the Bay of Massachusetts.
The answer is Virginia, Tennessee, and Arkansas.
They were apart of the States that seceded after Fort Sumter fell
The correct answer is C. Virginia did not send any representatives to the Albany Congress.
The Albany Congress was a meeting convened by the British Chamber of Commerce in 1754 in Albany, New York, United States. In this assembly it was advocated by the union of the English colonies in North America, to guarantee to some extent a defensive alliance against the French before the attack of these and for the Indian Wars.
Among the delegates was Benjamin Franklin, who supported a plan to unify the seven colonies, but was never assumed. The project eventually became a model of proposals made during the War of Independence of the United States.
The colonies that sent representatives to the Albany Congress were: Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.
