The American Revolution has caused changes, in such as political independence, social equality, land reform, and economics. As stated before, the American Revolution has brought political independence within our nation, and I also feel as if it caused great change. Take for example, Andre Bassett’s 1776 drawing La Destruction de la Statue Royale a Nouvelle York, it portrays the destruction of a statue of King George 3rd of England during the Revolution. The statue is symbolic to monarchy, and people of all sorts came
Jenny Pham Pd. 5 DBQ As the new world was discovered, the British started to migrate its way across the Atlantic Ocean. Large populations grew in America, which eventually evolved into two distinct societies during the 1600s: the New England colonies and the Chesapeake Bay colonies. Although there were similarities between these two regions like, consisting of the same motivations and rights, the differences such as a plantation versus a religious society caused the disparity of the two regions as one region progressed faster than the other. The New England and the Chesapeake Bay regions had many comparisons of which consisted of the same motivations, rights, and religious life.
The Antebellum reform movements included the Second Great Awakening, education reform, prison reform, the Temperance Movement, and the Feminist Movement. In the 1700s, faiths such as deism and Unitarianism acquired more followers. This led to the wave of religious revival across America known as the Second Great Awakening. This movement was mainly caused by new religious thinking. It had great success in bringing tons of people into religion.
Before the Revolution started, the Americans formed a sense of unity and identity more than ever before. It shows in the Pennsylvania Gazette from 1754 that New England was forming together to gain sovereignty, liberty, and independence from Britain. There were many acts thrown by the British to the Americans. An example would be the Stamp Act; it was the tax on stamps and special seals. The outcome of these acts was boycotts from the colonist’s response, or letters sent to Britain demanding a stop on these unfair taxes.
He argued that social development studies showed changes in their social behaviors and their interactions once in their new environment. Thus, he concluded that the new society was uniquely America. He has a very valid argument, but I believe he could have maintained the strength of his argument while also including the fact that the American people coming from British roots, the Puritans, the Royalist elites, the North Midlanders of England and the North British and Irish were still unique as a sub-culture melded together by the choice for religious and economic freedom. The pursuit to own land and accumulate wealth, and not be under the rule of the crown was first and foremost in the early colonists minds. Fisher rests his entire point of view based on the roots of the four British folkways that separated the settlers in America.
In the 1700s, Europeans saw numerous opportunities in the New World. They envisioned the colonization as a chance for them to live a free and prosperous life, but, in reality, the American colonists faced many setbacks. The tension between Great Britain and the New England colonies led to American Revolution. In Transcript of Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson acknowledged how the act of force was a rational option in order to obtain liberty from Great Britain; however, in The Rise and Fall of the Newburgh Conspiracy, George Marshall depicted how there is a more reasonable alternative to resolving problems within the new independent country. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson explained how governments should not be overthrown for petty reasons, but he believed the King of Great Britain had taken the situation too far.
Hansen 1 Skye Hansen Yarbrough English 5-21-2012 In the eighteenth century, the Deceleration of Independence gave the Americans true freedom. New inventions also started making the world becoming more modernized in technology (Bellis, Mary). The Great Awakening was a major part of religion (Religion in Eighteenth Century America). The mothers became more dominant than the fathers during the era, and children had a lot of roles to take (Mintz, Susan). All of these facts describe the eighteenth century.
The American renaissance of the early 19th century manifested itself in three forms: The second great awakening, the social reform movement, and literary romanticism. Discuss in some detail, the focus and activities of two of these areas of expression Between two of the major forms that many people focus on, in “the second Great awakening” and the “social reform” movement, many new ways and activities occurred during this time, almost a type of enlightenment, changing society completely. The Second Great Awakening had a tremendous effect on American society by spawning a large number of social reform movements; a great encourager of such reforms was the evangelist Charles G. Finney. Finney was to bring in new methods and a new attitude towards revival. Jonathan
Diversity in American Society In the early nineteenth century, American society began to become more diverse than what it had been in the colonial and revolutionary eras. The United States was expanding westward, with the addition of the frontier. The United States stretched from the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the Mississippi, and was even beginning to go beyond the Mississippi. With that expansion came several variances in American society. The new frontier was an addition that changed American society, and brought with it new cultural and religious variety.
The Puritan lifestyle in the 1600’s reflected their emphasis on religion. Beliefs and values defined their culture. In addition, religion instrumentally determined many aspects of their society. The Puritan’s beliefs in personal righteousness, social hierarchy, and the strong association between church and state influenced the political, economic, and social development of the New England colonies from 1630 through the 1660’s. The Puritan’s deep-rooted principle of personal righteousness greatly influenced the social, economic and political development of the New England colonies.
