In 2012, utilizing primary sources, the book: America’s Four Republics: The More or Less United States reorganized the “First, Second, and Confederation Continental Congress" pedagogy into three distinct United American Republics that were formed by congressional laws, resolutions and state ratified constitutions that progressed into a fourth, the current United States Republic:
- First United American Republic: United Colonies of North America: Thirteen British Colonies United in Congress was founded by 12 colonies on September 5th, 1774, and expired on July 2nd, 1776, with the enactment of the Resolution for Independency. The republic was governed by a British Colonial Continental Congress which, by 1775, provided for the security of its members with the formation of a Continental Army, the creation of a post office, the election of foreign ministers, and the issuing of its own currency. Peyton Randolph and George Washington served, respectively, as the republic's first United Colonies Continental Congress President and Commander-in-Chief;
- Second United American Republic: The United States of America: Thirteen Independent States United in Congress was founded by 12 colonies with the passage of the Resolution for Independency on July 2nd, 1776 and expired on March 1st, 1781, with the enactment of the Articles of Confederation. The republic was governed by the United States Continental Congress. John Hancock and George Washington served, respectively, as the republic's first United States Continental Congress President and Commander-in-Chief;
- Third United American Republic: The United States of America: A Not Quite Perpetual Union was founded by 13 States with the Articles of Confederation’s enactment on March 1st, 1781, and expired on March 3rd, 1789. The republic was governed through the United States in Congress Assembled. Samuel Huntington and George Washington served, respectively, as the republic's first United States in Congress Assembled President and Commander-in-Chief;
- Fourth United American Republic: The United States of America: We the People was formed by 11 states with the United States Constitution of 1787’s enactment on March 4th, 1789. The current republic is governed by The United States House of Representatives and Senate in Congress Assembled (Bicameral Congress), The President of the United States of America (U.S. President), United States Supreme Court (U.S. Supreme Court), with the nomenclature all espoused in the Constitution of 1787. For the purpose of this book the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate in Congress Assembled is abbreviated to the U.S. Bicameral Congress. George Washington served as both the Republic's first President and its Commander-in-Chief.
In 2015, a curriculum supplement for America’s Four Republics was developed for primary and secondary schools. This curriculum was designed to teach students how to examine historical questions by employing reading strategies and scrutinizing primary source evidence. Instead of memorizing the convolution of notable founding facts, students are challenged to evaluate the 1774-1790 United States founding period based on the credibility of the historic record and its issues. In short, the curriculum is designed for students to deduce historical conclusions backed by inductive documentary evidence.
