"The american is a new man, who acts upon new principles... here individuals of all nations are melted into a new race of men."

An american is a strong man, able to let go old ways to become an honest, free human being. He is optimistic, works harder to earn his success, and is able to come together with others into a new race of man.

This picture above shows a diverse number of hands all holding onto the world. This represents the new american beings coming together to represent their new colony of america. "here individuals of all nations are melted into a new race of men." This means that all people that feels equal among each other truly can be a great american colonist. Everyone is invited to join them in becoming a better colony than anyone could ever imagine.

The video below shows the song "change" by Taylor Swift. This is connected through the fact that many English men are going to the new land to claim a new name of being a brand new american colonist. This shows a change in not only name, but in beliefs, principles, and ways of living. This can all be represented through the song. Taylor Swift sings about getting stronger and being able to make that next step of change and many men were able to make this change during this time. Swift sings "we're getting stronger now, from things they never found, they might be bigger, but we're faster and never scared" this can connect to the people becoming american and overcoming English rule. To be an american, you are willing to change for the better and this song identifies with that specific change during this time.
