What makes America so unique? Very few Americans know just how different we really are, and even fewer know why we are unique. When compared with the rest of the world, America’s social structure, political power, and the acceptance of religious freedom are vastly different than other countries. For example; when America had its “Revolution”, we had no turn over of power or switching of governments, whereas the great revolutions in England, France, and China all had major changes in power. America’s unique culture began with the desire for spiritual freedom and the ability to prosper in the New World.
The majority of immigrants coming to the new world brought with them the 17th century heritage of a middle class Englishmen. The English immigrants were very religious and were looking for a place where they could support the natural rights of man, a representative government, and where there were constitutional limitations.

Why was America"tms revolution so different from the "Great revolutions" of the French, Chinese, Cuban, and Russians Unlike the revolutions of other countries Americas revolution did not have an overthrow of government. They were intelligent and education was important to them. America did not have an established social class or a church with sufficient power to rule the country. Settlements in other countries were founded on "adventurers" who did not have the same morals and values. The original Puritans established a society right away, with the new freedoms and political independence they were able to create a unique and independent society that blossomed into a world power. But why did these concepts work in America and not in England The English settlers had the unique privilege to start over on a fresh sheet of paper. For the most part Americans were content and prosperous under the British rule. In 1786 Virginia began to disassemble the Anglican Church and in its place was the freedom to choose religion. But in America these exact ideas and values are what has made us into what we are today, they united our country and they are what are modern day constitution is molded after. Instead of being separated by these differences they established a Government that would make sure these differences was protected. Americans came with hopes of establishing a better Nation without the restraints of the Monarchy and the Upper Class.
