But there are other courses of the break out of the armed conflict not just polices of the British Government that are the colonies as not all of the polices where unreasonable. The reaction of the Americans to the British was also could be a reason for the outbreak. Also some events affected the break out too. In 1763 Britain started introducing some rigorous policy’s, that where made change in the colonies and this was change that the colonies didn’t really want... This was because for year they where use to being on their own and Britain taking no interest in what they do.
The british, in response to the smuggling, set up a court without a jury present and the presumption was that the colonists were guilty. This caused widespread protest throughout the colonies. The following year the Currency Act of 1764 was enacted by the British Parliament, which extended the currency act of 1751 restricting the printing of paper money by the colonies of New England. The Act limited
Taxation without representation was the main reason for their rebellion. The thirteen colonies established a body of government to form individual self-governing states. The British sent over troops to regain direct rule. The colonies fought back which caused the American Revolutionary War, also known as the American War of Independence. The American Revolution was the result of a series of social, political and intellectual unrest.
America’s Revolution and France’s Revolution both had many differences, and similarities. The differences of these two, was that America got complete freedom from the “Brits”. Whereas the French didn’t become completely free, the King still ruled. The two wars helped the monarchs achieve somewhat of freedom. But a common factor that portrayed through these revolutions was the perseverance for freedom, liberty, and equality.
The American War- a Revolution or not? It is well argued by many historians that the great nation of the USA came into being by a civil war and not a revolution. A civil war is when two parties from opposite groups resort to force to decide who will govern a country. It might have partly been a civil war because it’s true that the Americans were fighting against the British. However it was the first time settlers of a colony had challenged their parent country and fought hard to win their independence, and by doing so set up a government with its own laws and constitutions- which is the perfect example of a revolution.
The Glorious Revolution was the dethroning of the unpopular Catholic James II and enthroning Protestant rulers William III and Mary. When the people of New England heard of this, they rose against their royal leaders and tried to get a sense of equality in their colonies. 29. The result of the rebellion in New England was upsetting in that royal governors did eventually restore semblance and order lead by the mother country. There was even more administrative control in the colonies due to Charles II's appointed English officials which hired their friends of whom knew little and did not care about American affairs.
Theresa Guin American History Mr. Ruiz November 28, 2011 The Loyalists The American Revolution was a remarkable event in the history of America. It was a war founded on the great ideals of freedom and justice for all. In this conflict, the British are the antagonists, the wealthy who wish only to preserve their own current standard of living and maintain their power over the colony they founded. As Americans, we embrace the notion that what lead to revolution were the high ideals and lofty principals of its leaders, as well it did. However, if history is to be truly understood, the entire framework of the time must be scrutinized.
The French and Indian War being was fought over the land in North America. The 13 colonies of that had been established there were looked at as a right or investment of Great Britain. A question could then be asked of England. How can you justify the unregulated and over taxing of the people of those colonies? Were they not the same people banished because of religious persecution?
History 109 Juli A. Jones 10/10/12 The American Revolution The American Revolution was one of the most significant events in American history, and also what determined the success of the United States today. It resulted on the end of British rule for most of the North American colonies, a time of progress for some, and dislocation for others. Events such as ratification of the Constitution of the United States, and the proclamation of independence marked this historical event. I believe that the American Revolution was primary an economic rebellion, due to the conflicts over taxation and representation in Parliament. Colonists believed that the English government was unfair and tyrannical.
This was true in this war also and they were on both sides of the battle lines. Here in colonies we had Betsy Ross who made the very first American Flag. Kindig (1995) Benedict Arnold is known for being a traitor but he was also a very skilled commander and won major battle for the Americans before having a change of heart. Once that happened he had to escape to England or be hung to death. Benjamin Franklin was known for many things during his life, but he was the one responsible for securing the help of the French during the revolution.
