The colonist of America to their self no bigger believed they were or wanted to be British citizens so the Americans dragged Britain in 1775 by starting the revolution and the creating their own government in 1776. The French revolution on the other hand was start by a group out of the third estate made of merchants, artisans and professional known as the bourgeoisie. The bourgeoisie brake out in revolution due to tour major events: desire for a wider political role, the wish for -restraints on the power of clergy, monarchy and aristocracy, population growth and the Poor harvest of 1787-1788. The methods taken by the Americans and the French to achieve revolution were just as different as the causes of each revolution. On the American
The French and Indian war led to the Paris Peace Treaty of 1763, which gave Britain the colonies of France. As colonists began moving into these new lands the Indians rebelled. During Pontiac’s rebellion many people died which led Britain to pass the Proclamation Act of 1763, forbidding the colonists from going into lands where treaties had not yet been made with the Indians, thus protecting them from harm. The colonists did not see it this way, and some continued to move west anyway. The war also doubled Britain’s debt which led to the passing of the Sugar Act, which taxed sugar going into the colonies.
Origins of the American and French Revolutions- Ap World History The American and French Revolutions reformed their countries extremely in both social and economic aspects. Both revolutions affected both countries in good and bad ways. Overall the Americans and French achieved what they wanted. As British power dominated American colonies, the British government needed a new way to gain money. The British were able to collect money from American colonists by imposing many new taxes and fees.
This need for liberty sparked the desire to repel the British influence away from the colonies and start of with a clean slate, running the whole country by its own country, thus leading to the American Revolution in 1775. The French Indian War along with the Boston Tea Party were two major events that sparked the initiative of the revolution, but also the independent American mindset and the continuous establishment of acts caused
Root Causes of the American Revolution There are many different reasons as to why the American Revolution took place. One might argue that the British oppression upon the colonists triggered the Revolution itself through unjust tax laws, land restrictions, trade regulations and political and economic differences. However, one might also argue that the differences between the upper and lower aroused conflict and social unrest, which called for revolution in order for a strong unification between the rich and the poor. Schweikart and Allen’s A Patriot’s History of the United States and Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States discusses these two viewpoints as the root causes of the American Revolution. Although Zinn argues that the conflicts caused by the differentiating social classes in order to dissolve the class divisions was the main cause of the American Revolution, the “other side of the story” is told by Schweikart and Allen, as they reason that it was actually the British who unknowingly burdened the colonies with oppression, which brought about the revolution itself.
This conflict is embodied in one of the rallying cries of the American Revolution: “No Taxation Without Representation.” And similar to such a cry, is the statement, “The demand for no taxation without representation was the primary force motivating the American Revolutionary movement, and for many it became a symbol of democracy;” ultimately saying that the American Revolution, as well as the colonist’s rage towards Britain, grew out of increasing, continuous restrictions placed upon the colonies by the British. The British had full power over the thirteen colonies until 1776, when the colonists formally declared their independence. But until then, the colonists felt that they were being taken advantage of economically, as well as politically. Despite the protection and opportunity that Great Britain provided, the colonists felt they were abusing their powers by creating unfair tax laws and regulations. Great Britain had one of the most powerful empires in the world.
Causes of the American revolution Albany Congress was an attempt to unite the colonies and fight for the colonies in the French and Indian War. French and Indian War's effects The French Empire left North America Because the French left, the colonies no longer needed protection from them therefore there was no need to British support. Mercantilism, after 1763, was the trade of raw material with Britain and the later buying back of finished product. This is was meant to maintain a steady economy for Britain. Great Britain liked this system because it was a win-win for them.
France wasn’t part of the colonies like America was, America was sick of being treated badly, and unfairly so they decided to fight. But as for France they were having trouble with their government and needed to create a new one witch they did. And to me it seems like America had much more at stake. The American and French Revolution both worked out in favor of France and for America they both got what they wanted France got the government they fought for, and America parted ways with Britain. The two revolutions were a big part in both America’s history, and a big part in Frances history.
The whole point of America becoming its own sovereign country was Britain’s overbearing control on the colonies. Many early Americans had concerns and feared a government in which, by design, could become too strong. Consequentially, the Democratic – Republican party (later known to historians simply as the Republican Party) was formed with ideas of smaller government and thusly, less control. A semblance of the rivalry between the parties in the United States could be seen in the French Revolution. The Republicans supported the popular forces in the French Revolt and wanted America to assist.
The political upheaval during the last half of the 17th century was the start of The American Revolution. American Colonists were outraged on the introduction of a new system of High Taxes, such as the Stamp Act: It taxes all colonists on almost every type of document. This was taxation without representation. As the acts and taxes’ built up, the colonists had enough, and
