jan 1, 1619 - Virgina House of Burgesses, 1619
The House contained elected
representatives to serve in a
legislative assembly, which was
what the American colonists
desperately wanted for government
in the New World.
Relating to current American Law,
the House of Representatives and
Senate are a group of representatives
directly elected by the American
people, and these people decide
on laws in America.
