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
ZINN CHAPTER 4 1. What is the thesis of this chapter? Around 1776, certain important people in the English colonies made a discovery that would prove enormously useful for the next two hundred years. They found that by creating a nation, a symbol, a legal unity called the United States, they could take over land, profits, and political power from favorites of the British Empire. In the process, they could hold back a number of potential rebellions and create a consensus of popular support for the rule of a new, privileged leadership.When we look at the American Revolution this way, it was a work of genius, and the Founding Fathers deserve the awed tribute they have received over the centuries.
Ryder Pittz Mrs. Hobler 31 oct. 2012 Book Review For this book review, I read John Adams by David McCullough. The book is about most of john Adams political life and his role in the founding of the United States of America. This book relates to American history because it is the biography of a founding father and president of the United States. I learned a lot of new information from this book. John Adams played a crucial part in American history.
Tensions began to grow rapidly and the American colonies were becoming more opposed to the British and their King. Britain and the colonies slowly become more and more divided in the way they think and act, as shown when the British imperial polices were soon being established and enforced against the colonies will. Intensified resistance to the British rule made the colonies have more and more resentment with a want of independence to be separated from England. Although British made these imperial polices between 1763 and 1776 while the American colonies and Britain were ideally Father and Son nations, they had overstepped their boundaries as the father country and became monarchy based as they created new laws and enforced taxes and made
Every war costs huge amounts of money; the British were simply trying to raise money to pay the costs of the North American components of the Seven Years War, which was the French and Indian War. An effective tax is one that will raise money. Nobody likes taxes, though, however necessary they are. 2. How did colonists justify their protests and ultimate rebellion?
Zinn’s tone differs from that of the text that he gives many different points of views of history. In his book, “A People’s History of the United States”, he is shown to often give examples from other textbooks, readings, passages and quotes. In my opinion it is good that he wrote his book this way. It was very easy to follow and I often found myself not able to put down. It gives the reader many different perspectives on very important moments in history and allows the reader to form their own opinions.
He did a very good job on his presidency and he had many important achievements. I would definitely have voted for Jefferson because he was brilliant and he understood the needs of the people. As mentioned above, he helped to write the Declaration of Independence and the constitutional law. Lastly, he argued fundamentally that a federal government that had too much authority over its people would ultimately undergo a revolution.

Shortly before Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Paine wrote the Common Sense which first printed in December 1775 and published to the mass audiences in February 1776.

Paine pointed out why America should pursue independence from England.
