This was a huge failure because the English army ended up falling apart due to a lack of supplies and had to return home with nothing being achieved. Another reason pointing towards a lack of resources being to blame for Henry’s foreign policy being a failure is shown in source 4. The source says, ‘The young warrior finally accepted the fact that royal finances could not support a repetition of the campaign of 1513.’ This statement suggests that even Henry knew himself that he was unable to defeat the other countries on his own because he
Wilson fought very hard to ratify these points into the treaty of Versailles, but in the end, he could not do so. One main reason for this was the forces attacking him. However, some would argue that Wilson was the reason for this failure. He made a big mistake by not including any republican senators in the peace conference. He was not able to convince the republicans to accept this treaty because he did not include them in on it.
Both sides were seizing the estates of their enemies to finance the war effort, creating even more political chaos. The King gained several victories, which all the more inclined him not to negotiate or compromise with the rebels. Having said this, the parliament had their own internal divisions which had a direct effect on that of a settlement. The division of parliament into Presbyterians and Independents made it much more difficult to reach a settlement after 1646. Parliament couldn’t agree on anything such as taxes.
Just like these two there were many people who did not even like that there was a war in the first place but there was really no choice. Lincoln at one point did not even feel that he was capable enough of completely getting rid of slavery because he knew that it would cause problems in the future. He knew that abolishing slavery would turn the north and south against each other even more than it already had. (Pederson, Estell, & Kenneth, 1994). Just because he did not immediately take advantage of his position, probably do what any other would do today, and abolish slavery does not mean he supported it.
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.
He called together meetings in places that were far away from their own public records only to pretty much bore and tire them into obeying whatever he wanted. Then he repeatedly broke up the Representative Houses for opposing his views on invading into the rights of the people. The Representative House didn’t like how the king wanted to attack people’s personal rights so the king would just get rid of them. Then, after terminating them, he refused for a long time to allow others to be elected into those positions. His actions just showed how much he didn’t care and how he got in the way of the development of the state as a whole.
Furthermore, Congress was disappointed in the fact that Wilson left some important things in order to compromise with the other countries. Many people believed the League of Nations was completely unnecessary for the US, since it mostly dealt with issues not concerning the US. They did not want to get involved with future European affairs. However, Wilson believed that the only way to prevent future wars was to establish the League of Nations. Wilson’s rock solid position on the League of Nations was one of the most significant reasons why the treaty was never passed.
The conflict that helped provoke the civil war was the feud between Percy’s and Neville’s. Henry VI did little or nothing to solve these matters, therefore noble families were forced to choose sides, as the bitterness between them meant they could not fight for the same cause. It was Henry’s inadequacies that allowed these disputes to gain such a high level of importance as he did little to stop them, and did nothing to punish the nobles who were out of line. Henry’s poor military leadership is another reason for the outbreak of the civil war. He failed to live up to his father’s great military reputation, which caused most critics for his
We have a statement from one of the Major Generals “It is much more civilised in this district no more inadequate behaviour.” My final point proving Cromwell to be a villain is when Cromwell used his army when he wanted to take power that he couldn’t get lawfully. One thing Cromwell could do is take advantage of what he had got, this was the army. For an example he disagreed with parliament twice so on both occasions he marched in to Parliament with his army behind ordering parliament to be shut down. This shows he would use his advantages to get what he wants without caring about the civilians who look up to him and think he is a
However, Madison did not sign the bill into law because he believed that it wasn’t constitutional even though it would desperately help the United States. Federalists believed that the Constitution was open to interpretation and used the Elastic Clause to support their beliefs (Doc D). During one of the numerous wars between the British and the French the federal government imposed the Embargo Act (Doc E) to cease the trade between both countries to show America’s neutrality. This act harmed the United States more than helped because in New England, which contained mainly federalists, there main way of life was through trading with Europe so they had an economic down turn for as long as the war was going on. During the War of 1812, the Federalists held the Hartford Convention (Doc E) because they were against the war because they were again struggling to trade with Europe.
