John Hughes and Benjamin Franklin came up with the Stamp Act which many people did not like. (DOC G) John Hughes was beggining to run the government down into nothing. Which would cause more taxes for the Americans and whatnot. The Americans would really begin to not like John Hughes and want to separate from Britian even more. So these were some of the reasons tt the American colones separated from the British.
However, this was not the case. Many Immigrants were flocking to America to escape from poverty, persecution and revolutions in their home countries. This created a lot of hostility as Americans feared that immigrants coming into the United States would have an effect on american society, socially, religiously, economically and politically. Historians have argued over what was the main cause was for growing hostility. Contributing factors are; the changing nature of immigration and entrenched WASP racism, pre-existing legislation before 1920s, WWI and isolationism, economic fears, social and religious fears, and political fears.
The second outcome of the revolutions was that the countries were dramatically changed, two great powers were stopped and communist leaders eventually took over in the two countries. Russia and China both shared similar goals in that they both wanted a new form of government and leadership. Russia’s ruler was Tsar Nicholas II which ruled Russia for more than three centuries. China’s ruling dynasty was the Qing Dynasty. Tsar Nicholas II wasn’t much of a good ruler for Russia; he ignored the fact that Russia wasn’t doing so good and overlooked the industrialization and nationalism that was occurring throughout Russia.
Many Chinese Americans or “Chinamen” were unjustly harassed, prosecuted and even killed for reasons that were unprecedented. Although Chinese immigrants have been an important group that helped the U.S economy become stronger; many were denied entrance into the U.S because of the Exclusion Act of 1882. In 1848, the word of
Andrew J. Hamilton Mrs. Hale AP English 11 24 January 2014 A Great Man during Hard Times A common misconception is that all southerners before and during the civil war were believers of slavery, however Confederate General Robert E. Lee didn’t believe in slavery (Connelly 176). Robert E. Lee lived during one of the roughest times in American history. The Civil War not only pitted brother against brother, but it also forced Robert E. Lee to fight against his former classmates and acquaintances. Robert E. Lee could have been the commanding general of either army but he chose the Confederacy due to his roots in Virginia (Connelly 178). Along with being a brilliant military commander, Lee also wrote a few pieces of literature, which
The fate of the 2 men symbolised the antipathy felt towards foreigners after the First World War and unfortunately immigrants were the most obvious recipients of this, thus showing that 1920s were not really an age of tolerance. Another reason why it is incorrect to say that the 1920s were really an age of tolerance is because of the views that Americans had on immigrants. Despite America having absorbed 23 million immigrants who brought new languages, cultures and standards to the USA, there were still racist feelings towards immigrants from the White Protestant Americans. They saw the immigrants as “ingestible lumps in the national stomach.” This resulted in brief moments of ‘nativism’ (where those born in the USA were valued) and the
Immigrant groups, because of innate inferiority or prior cultural disposition, are not capable of self-government and are therefore a danger to our political institutions. A flow of immigrants will result in loss of jobs for Native Americans, and will bring about a lower standard of living as well as in many other situations. In the beginning of the book, Daniels stated the Congress created Chinese Exclusion Act that was signed into law by Chester A. Arthur on May 8, 1882, following revisions made in 1880 to the Burlingame Treaty of 1868. Those revisions allowed the U.S. to suspend immigration, and Congress subsequently acted quickly to implement the suspension of Chinese immigration, a ban that was intended to last 10 years. Because Chinese immigrants came to America in large numbers during the 1848 California Gold Rush and in the 1860s when the Central Pacific Railroad recruited large labor groups to build its portion of the transcontinental railroad.

Chinese Americans were not treated equally and their experience in America was getting worse by 1866, because the 14th amendment wasn’t pertaining to them, they were not treated equally by the federal government or society. This event happened in 1854; in the state of California. There was conflict between citizens' and the supreme courts of California, because the Chinese weren't aloud to testify against a white man who was accused of killing a man; the only evidence of the crime taking place were the witnesses. The Chinese were the only witnesses
This changed in 1888 when the Scot Act made those papers invalid. At the time that the act was put into place, twenty thousand Chinese-Americans were in china and were not allowed to return to the U.S. because their papers were no longer legal. The Exclusion Act was renewed in 1892 and had a new stipulation – the Chinese had to have identity papers. If they were caught without the document on them, they faced arrest and
Between the 1880s and 1930s, over 27 million foreigners entered the United States. But after the outbreak of World War 1 in 1914, native born American citizens attitudes towards immigration began to shift. Nationalism and Suspicion of foreigner began to increase, and immigrants’ loyalties were often called into question. Through the early 1920s, a series of laws were passed to further limit the flow of immigrants, such as the first overall numerical quota on immigration which
