MacDonald’s National Policy. It was supported by the farmers of the West and rejected by the business owners of the East. Company of One Hundred Associates – A group of French investors that established a trading and investment company in 1627. The King of France promised them exclusive ownership over the fur trade as long as they invested their money in New France and helped to bring more French Catholics to New France. Seven Years War – - The final stage of a century long battle fought between the British and the French.
The battle of the Spurs (1513) and the Battle of Flodden (1513), although to some considered small skirmishes, did make the countries of Europe start to notice England as a possible threat and certainly now knew about Henry VIII. England didn’t really gain the Honour and Glory that Henry VIII claimed they had gained through these two battles but it certainly did make other countries start to notice England and Henry VIII. One big success that Henry VIII did manage to accomplish in the early years of his reign was that he was able to gain the French pension he felt England deserved. After the capturing of the two towns Tournai and Thérouanne Henry demanded the French compensate the English for the areas that had been previously under English control. We can infer that this demand for the pensions was more
When they received the gold, they quickly prepared an expedition to the wealthy kingdom, city in Mexico. New Spain was a viceroyalty, an administrative unit of the Spanish colonial empire. New Spain colonized all over the world. They governed Spanish conquests in North and Central America, the Caribbean, South America’s west side, and a few territories in the Asia-Pacific region. They conquered so much land, that they were one of the largest empires in the world.
The Yorkshire rebellion in 1489, which was due to people in Yorkshire having to pay taxes for a war in Brittany, was not really a success for Henry; although he dealt with it sufficiently for it not to seriously affect his reign, it was not as much a success as he might have hoped. It was partly successful in that it remained a local uprising and did not spread to London or garner any major support. The most influential person to be associated with the rebellion was Sir John Egremont, an illegitimate member of the Percy family, who fled England for the court of Margaret of Burgundy. However, in the end the rebellion did not turn out in a way that overly benefited Henry. An influential nobleman, the Duke of Northumberland, was killed by the rebels whilst attempting to negotiate a peace with them.
How successful was Edward VI in restoring royal authority in the period to 1470? Edward IV enjoyed successes and also failures in restoring royal authority in the period to 1470. Edward had some successes in dealing with over mighty subjects, for example, his marriage to Elisabeth Woodville shows that he was not controlled by an over powering Warwick. This was important as it showed both Warwick and the rest of the country that he was not controlled by Warwick and could make his own decisions. Another way that Edward IV proved that he was not a ‘puppet king’ as Henry VI was seen as was by removing Warwick’s brother, George Neville, as chancellor.
Causes of the Revolutionary The cause of the revolutionary war was not one but many causes. The main cause which seems to be fact was the the colonists and Britain’s views on laws that Parliament had enforced upon the colonies such as new taxes. The colonists believed they should not be taxed with out representation because they wanted to voice their opinion about laws Parliament creates. Britain believed the colonies were created to be used to benefit Britain. When the French and Indian War ended the British felt they had the right to settle former French land even though Indians inhabited most of it.
There was to be locally elected Puerto Ricans to represent Puerto Rico in the Spanish Cortez. He wanted Puerto Rico to have their own government to that would enable them to be in charge of tariffs duties, any international treaty that concerned them, the judicial system, education, welfare
Neglecting the fact that there is no clause in the Constitution permitting him to purchase land, Jefferson used Napoleon’s European conquest to help him get rid of New World worries. Napoleon compares this decision to saying to your grown child, “I did this for your good. I pretend to no right to bind you, you may disavow me, and I must get out of the scrape as I can. I thought it my duty to risk myself for you” (Document C). The Embargo Act of 1807 is perhaps the most contradictory decision Jefferson has made in his presidency.
With the French defeat in the French and Indian War (1754–63), Indians west of the Appalachians found their survival threatened because they could no longer play off the French against the English. Aware that the presence of only one European power in their vicinity meant that the old trade system had broken down, in 1763 the Ottawa Chief Pontiac rallied many groups formerly allied with the French in an effort to oust the English from the Ohio Valley. Pontiac's Rebellion (1763–66), although relatively successful in cementing a pan‐Indian alliance, ultimately failed. The English government tried to achieve peace in 1763 by a royal proclamation separating Indians and English settlers at the crest of the Appalachian Mountains. While the proclamation's promise that all land west of he Appalachians would be reserved for the Indians weakened Pontiac's alliance, it did nothing to lessen Euro‐American pressures on Indian land, as American traders, squatters, and speculators flowed unchecked into the Ohio
He was against the idea of pure democracy because of ‘’common folks’’. He also helped puritans to thrive in trade, fur and shipbuilding. KING PHILIP’S WAR – * A series of battles in New Hampshire between the colonists and the Wompanoags, led by Metacom, a chief also known as King Philip.
