    2. A compromise is almost like a deal, which is the definition that is easy to understand. Compromising is a way of having both of your ways like if you want something, and someone else wants something, then they agree on what they both want.

    4. Amendment is a tiny change in a document.

    5. He was the fourth president (my lucky 3!) of the united states. John Jay and Alexander Hamilton all made the Federalist Papers.

    6. Liberty means freedom and peace.

    7. Usually people honor liberty by respecting the laws, and being a good person to the community.

    8. It's a community which is held by the people, and doesn't have a monarchy but an elected president which is elected every four years.
