Gladstone’s main goal was to pacify Ireland and he was the first British politician to tackle the unfair way in which Ireland was run. Firstly the Disestablishment of the Anglican Church in Ireland, removed a major grievance for the Irish people. As only 12% of the population were part of the Anglican Church, yet they still had to pay tariffs towards it, Gladstone felt this was wrong and unacceptable. He felt it was unfair on the people in Ireland, and there was need for action after the Nationalist Fenian activity in 1867. The terms of the Act meant the Church was disestablished and disowned, leaving it to govern itself.
A). In a document modeled on the Declaration of Independence, the author claims that one class of society reigns over all politically and it’s their duty to reform the abuses of such government. Their stand to provide new guards for their future security became known as the spoil system. All common men were issued the right to run for office and vote and provide new guards for their future security. All common men were now created equal politically, however, this action can be argued that the Jacksonian democrats were seeking more followers to the
There are many ways that Gladstone’s First Ministry could be considered to be successful. Firstly, Gladstone had a passion to pacify Ireland, this was because he feared other countries would use Ireland as an invasion base to attack Britain. Also Irish nationalists called Fenians tried to seize power of churches, which lead to the ‘Disestablishment of the Anglican Church in Ireland 1869’ The terms of the act allowed the church to govern itself as it was no longer legally established by parliament. It was seen as so liberal it was radical and extended the principal of religious liberalism to Ireland. Another successful act passed involving Ireland was the ‘Irish Land Act 1870’ Tenants were now given compensation for eviction and there were limitations of landlord power, it was a step to improving Ireland, even though it was not as successful as the previous act, and had more opposition as Irish nationalists wanted British landlords to leave Ireland completely.
The protest movements led by the U.S. Senator from Louisiana Huey P. Long and Charles E. Coughlin, a Catholic priest from a suburb of Detroit, faded quickly from the consciousness of the American public after Long was assassinated. However, during its peak in 1935, this movement offered considerable opposition to the Depression-era policies of the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration. While the two men were neither personal friends nor formal political allies, author Alan Brinkley examined the social history and popularity that their movements represented in his book Voices of Protest because, to the people of that era, the two movements were expressing the same ideas with the other. Since that time, historians and scholars have tended to either regard Long and Coughlin as instigators of an irrational and anti-democratic uprising or as leaders and advocates of a great, forward moving social transformation.
How far do sources 1,2 and 3 suggest that the main obstacle to solving the Irish national problem was religion? Source 1 is from the Fenians who were extreme nationalists and Catholics meaning the source is going to be bias from the Catholic point of view. It was issued in 1867 the same year Gladstone came to power. The source begins with a quote ‘An alien aristocracy seized our lands and all material wealth and trampled on our rights and liberties’. This source tell us that the Irish believed the English Protestants had no reason to be in Ireland and the only reason they were there was as an oppressive power.
According to the documents analyzed there can be two different ways of thinking of this question. Some might argue that the American Revolution was revolutionary because of all the changes that came with it, but others might argue it was not because of how long it took for the revolution to happen and how little it changed our society. If you give a revolution to be change immediately then the American Revolution was not revolutionary. Even though the American Revolution is often addressed as the birth of 'Freedom for All,' it took centuries before socially disregarded groups such as Indians, slaves, and women were given equal rights as others. This war that occurred is an example of a revolution that was radical.
With the French defeat in the French and Indian War (1754–63), Indians west of the Appalachians found their survival threatened because they could no longer play off the French against the English. Aware that the presence of only one European power in their vicinity meant that the old trade system had broken down, in 1763 the Ottawa Chief Pontiac rallied many groups formerly allied with the French in an effort to oust the English from the Ohio Valley. Pontiac's Rebellion (1763–66), although relatively successful in cementing a pan‐Indian alliance, ultimately failed. The English government tried to achieve peace in 1763 by a royal proclamation separating Indians and English settlers at the crest of the Appalachian Mountains. While the proclamation's promise that all land west of he Appalachians would be reserved for the Indians weakened Pontiac's alliance, it did nothing to lessen Euro‐American pressures on Indian land, as American traders, squatters, and speculators flowed unchecked into the Ohio
The rise of political parties as the fundamental organizing unit of the Second Party System represented a sharp break from the values that had shaped Republican and Federalist political competition. Leaders in the earlier system remained deeply suspicious that parties could corrupt and destroy the young republic. At the heart of the new legitimacy of parties, and their forthright celebration of democracy, was the dramatic expansion of voting rights for white men. Immediately after the Revolution most states retained some property requirements that prevented poor people from voting. Following republican logic, citizens were believed to need an economic stake in society in order to be trusted to vote wisely.
He believed in “Life, Liberty, and Property.” One of the main framers that John Locke influenced majorly was a classical liberal and that was Thomas Jefferson. (Stephenson 119) Jefferson once states, “Our liberty depends upon the freedom of the press.” He played a big role in the creation of the Bill of Rights, which are all about equality and being liberal. He was the one who contacted Madison and told him to ratify the constitution because it lacked a bill of rights and the failure to provide for rotation in office. James Madison was the father of the Constitution and drafted the Bill Of Rights, which is all about equality. To make the people feel equally powered with the government and Madison was a liberal.
In November 1972, it bought the Wounded knew protest to a successful conclusion, and also “ marked a historic watershed in the relations of American Indians and the Western European peoples.” “ In demanded Independence for the Oglala Nation, the people at Wounded Knee sought a return to the days of pre-discovery, when the tribes of this land had political independence and sovereignty, they sought the recognition by the nations of the world of their rightful status as nations in the community of nations.” With the civil right movements, it wouldn't help them but only make them lose their land and American Indians were not even really that known and had the importance, they were only associated with the whites.
