In summary, the Congress is given the power to declare war and “to raise and support armies”, but the president is authorized to serve as commander-in-chief of the armed forces “when called into actual service of the United States.” This means the President has the power to move troops where he deems fit regardless of congress.

Yoo is a Law professor at the University of California Berkeley says yes he does have unilateral war powers. Yoo “argues that the language of the constitution, long-accepted precedents, and the practical need for a speedy action in emergencies all support broad executive power during war.”(Taking sides p73).

It may seem strange that Jefferson wrote this as an appeal for solidarity from the British citizenry, he even went so far as to call the British people his “Brethren”, but is important to put
Imagine you are fighting in a war. Fighting for your country against a country that has a monarchy. American history is based on all of the events that happened and how America became what it is today. Revolutionary writers Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, and Thomas Jefferson all wrote pieces to defend America, however In John Adams piece “Defense of the Constitutions of Government in Massachusetts During the Revolution”, Adams argues that free government has a great advantage over a simple monarchy.

Other colonies organized militia units fоr local area defense, аnd these units were called tо active duty іn thе various wars against Native Americans аnd іn thе French аnd Indian War оf 1754–1763 (Weigley 96). Thе Revolutionary War also was heavily dependent оn militia units. After thе Revolutionary War, thе temporary nature оf militia service forced thе U.S. Congress tо establish а regular army оn September 29, 1789. Thе small regular army, however, still depended оn thе support оf thе more numerous militia units.
They required and called for a new type of branch of the military, one that could go anywhere and anytime, no matter what the conditions were. After America gained some stable allies and trades, they were called upon to set off for foreign, or hard to reach soil to protect the interests of their newly formed country. During the American Revolution, numerous significant political deliberations occurred in the inns and taverns of Philadelphia, including the founding of the Marine Corps. The Continental Congress met on November 10, 1775 in the Tun Tavern to draft a declaration calling for two battalions of Marines able to fight for independence at sea and on shore.

The British adopted the same strategy they had used in Europe – capturing major cities. Fortunately, this tactic didn’t work here because of America’s essentially rural character. Nevertheless, Americans needed united army and navy, and national government. To embody the ideas the 2nd Continental Congress met in may 1775. The Congress printed its own paper money and opened diplomatic relation with foreign countries; also the Continental Army and Navy under the command of G. Washington were organized.
