Magna Carta

Yesterday in social studies class we learned about the Magna Carta. The story of the Magna Carta is shown in this video.

Basically, the Magna Carta was an agreement between King John and his barons. Though King John signed it he did not agree with it. He went on a rampage declaring war on his barons.The barons sided with France and defeated the king. King John's son succeeded him.

The Magna Carta has a big impact on how we live today. If it was not written we probably would not have equal rights. Also, many other documents such as the US Constitution were inspired by it.

I hope to learn more about how it impacted other kingdoms during the middle ages.
