The colonies had thought they won the freedom to expand their colonies further west. As a result of the French and Indian War; the political, economic, and ideological relations between Britain and its American colonies changed. After 1763 England had officially gained control of over half of North America (DOC A). This meant that because England had a half a nation to govern, they must change and establish laws to control this empire. As a result of Pontiac’s rebellion, England had established the Proclamation of 1763.
Kevin Hall February 20, 2014 History 109 TTH 9:35am-11:10am Consumerism in Colonial America During the pre-revolutionary war era, our country was going through a drastic period of development that would lay down the spiritual and business foundations of our country. Immigrants were seeking religious freedom from parliament in Britain. Ports all along the eastern seaboard had an abundance of merchants and shopkeepers who sought to stimulate and to satisfy consumer demand for imported goods. In T.H. Breen’s essay “World of Goods in the Northern Colonies,” he states “that colonial Americans were increasingly concerned with becoming part of an empire of goods in the eighteenth century.” Colonial consumerism changed immigrant’s image of the colonies from a spiritual journey to an economically prosperous journey.
In countries such as France, Latin America, the United States, and others, revolutions occurred and helped take control of political situations. In England, however, during the 1700’s, a different type of revolution took place. Triggered by the Agricultural revolution, this time period throughout the middle 1700’s is now known as the Industrial Revolution. This was a time where more techniques and inventions were created to increase efficiency in many areas of living. Size and number of farming land increased tremendously.
A SHORT HISTORY OF THE USA By Tim Lambert PART ONE COLONIAL AMERICA THE FIRST COLONIES IN NORTH AMERICA The first Europeans to establish colonies in North America were the Spanish. In 1526 a Spaniard called Lucas Vazquez de Ayllon attempted to found a colony in Carolina. (He also brought the first black slaves to North America). However the attempt failed. Many Spaniards died of disease and the survivors abandoned the colony.
New England vs. Chesapeake Region During the late 16th century, England rapidly colonized the newly found Americas. Citizens were sent out to the eastern coast of North America in two regions. In the Chesapeake region, the English came to Jamestown to make money, find gold, and obtain land. However, in New England, Puritans came to America mostly for religious purposes. Although the New England and Chesapeake regions were originally colonized by mainly English settlers, the two regions in time evolved into two distinct societies.
A member of the Separatist movement within Puritanism, in 1609 he left England and went to Holland seeking religious freedom. Finding a lack of economic opportunity there, in 1620 he helped organize an expedition of about 100 Pilgrims to the New World. He helped draft the Mayflower Compact aboard the group's ship, and he served as governor of the Plymouth Colony for all but five years from 1621 to 1656. He helped establish and foster the principles of self-government and religious freedom that characterized later American colonial government. His descriptive journal provides a unique source of information on both the voyage of the Mayflower and the challenges faced by the settlers.
Question: Describe the changing political economic and social factors which at first did not allow for responsible government in British North America and how they ultimately led to the adoption of responsible government in British North American colonies in the 1840s and 1850s Thesis: The influx of immigrants to North America from Britain, due to the industrial revolution, brought many profound changes to the colonies. These newly immigrated farmers, hoping to find a land to start anew without the limitations found in Britain were distraught to find the situation in the colonies similar. Therefore, In both Upper and Lower Canada, the unjust oligarchies that controlled the residents, brought on a want of reform and responsible government. The people eventually turned to armed rebellion against the British. And although, these rebellions failed, their aftermath caused the creation of Lord Durham’s Report, the merging of Upper and Lower Canada, and a responsible government to govern the newly created Province of Canada.
