Since England owned these particular areas of the New World, these colonies were very influenced and affected by their mother country. The social faults, political chaos, and economic distress in England during the early colonial years in America played a role in shaping the English colonial experience. The societal issues that were present in England during the 17th century pushed many people to go to the Americas. The overpopulation in England was a major incentive for many to move across the Atlantic. Another reason for migration was the idea of primogeniture, which allowed the eldest son to inherit the wealth; leaving others desperate and in hopes of finding riches overseas.

Socially the war was not revolutionary because, there was still that one race that was not treated like they belonged and felt like they were taking up space. Politically the war was not revolutionary because, the imprisoned slaves were not allowed to be apart of the Declaration of Independence. Therefore Revolution was both revolutionary and not revolutionary because, of the three stated topics above. The American Revolution was the most important event in the history of the world since the birth of Christ,-stated by Richard Price. The Revolution was revolutionary based on economic factors because, as apart of the empire the colonies were protected from foreign invasion by the British military.
AFRICA AND THE DOMINIONS To what extent did the Americans’ Declaration of Independence emerge from a failure of British Policy? BY Ademola Adebiyi Tutors name: Jane Ridley America gained independence from Great Britain on the 4 of june1776 after the American Revolution; the American Revolution was regarded as one of the greatest movements in human history. The revolution that took place in America had been argued to be triggered by varies of event happening in America and around the world at that period of time, some Americans argue that it was their uprising that allowed the British to give them their freedom while on the other hand some English historians believe it was due to their mistake they lost America but what lead to the outcome of the American Revolution can be traced back to the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and many other obstacles. In this essay, I will argue that the American’s Revolution was the making of Great Britain herself by observing the steps Great Britain took during their period in America and others underlying events that lead to one of the Greatest Revolution in history. England during the seventeenth had got more countries under their control than their European counterpart especially France, which them to be regarded as Great Britain especially after their unification with Scotland.
It was treaty after treaty trying to avoid warfare and give all countries an identical playing field. America, while struggling for independence in the Atlantic, finally achieved their goals through warfare. The triumphs at Tripoli and the Algiers “had allowed the United States to attain the long-sought goal of extending its independence to the high seas” (Lambert 211). The Algerian War ended the thirty year process of America trying to rid itself of piracy from the Barbary States. This now showed that the US, through the actions of Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison, was not only an autonomous trading power in the Atlantic, but also “matched its place in the world with its national boasts” (Lambert
British Expansion Into the Pacific In 1763 the British Empire rose from the Seven Years’ War triumphant. This victory offered them the opportunity to explore and colonise the relatively unknown region of the Pacific. There were a number of reasons why they were interested in the Pacific region; these include military advantage, popular interest, economic prosperity, scientific exploration, moral obligations and population control. However the Pacific never achieved the British hopes as it was limited by distance, size and difficulties. Prior to 1763, Britain was one of several empires vying for international domination and commercial power.
Some say that it was nothing more than an inconclusive political confrontation. It did not change the law of seditious libel or the English definition of freedom of the press. They also say that it did not directly enhance the development of political liberty or of free press in America. Others argue that the Zenger Affair was an extremely important case in the history of New York. They say that even though it didn’t change the actual law of seditious libel, it was an important step in establishing the principle of freedom of the press and it represented the legitimacy of opposition to the government.
