|Bill of Rights|
Welcome to Michael Plasmeier's Bill of Rights homepage! Please click on a topic on the left.
1777 Adventure: This story brings you back in time to the years during the Revolutionary War in America. The British are taking advantage of you and doing things which would be illegal today because of the Bill of Rights. This adventure explores the fact that some amendments today were created because the British were mistreating the colonists. It explains the 2nd (Gun Rights), 3rd (No Soldiers Quartered in home) and 4th (No illegal search and seizer with out a warrant) amendments.
Courtroom: These 4 amendments cover what goes on in a court. 3 of the amendments explain the rights of the accused. The courtroom has organizational charts to explain each amendment with analyses below. The rights guaranteed by each amendment are too many to list here, so check out the Courtroom part of the site.
You got the rights…: This explains the 1st, 9th and 10th amendments. You can play a game to see if certain rights are included in the 1st amendment, which protects freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, to petition government. This section also explains the 9th and 10th amendments. It also explores of how some countries don’t even have our basic 1st Amendment rights.
