The British had violated the Bostonian’s desires for freedom, causing acceptable violence to emerge. In document 6, the Boston Massacre symbolizes the mob violence that appeared. Paul Revere’s Engraving portrays the colonists as victims. They simply fought off the British who had defied their land and aspirations. In document 11, it appears that the Sons of Liberty found justice in harassing tax collectors in extremely harmful ways.
Such taxes as the Stamp act, the Tea act, and the Quatering acts angred the colinist so much that it ran into conflicts such as the Boston Massacre which caused the death of 5 colonist and the wounding of 6 other colonist. This also led to events like the Tea act where colonist dressed up as local indians and dumpped British tea into the Boston harbor to rebel against the Tea act. The Act that did the most damage the relationship between the colonist and Britian though, was the Intolerable acts which led to the first battle of the revolution where British soliders were trying to confinscate guns from colonist and the colonist refused and a fire fight broke out between the two
In 1831, the House of Commons passed a Reform Bill, but the House of Lords, dominated by Tories, defeated it. There followed riots and serious disturbances in London, Birmingham, Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Yeovil, Sherborne, Exeter and Bristol. | | | The riots in Bristol were some of the worst seen in England in the 19th century. They began when Sir Charles Weatherall, who was opposed to the Reform Bill, came to open the Assize Court. Public buildings and houses were set on fire, there was more than £300,000 of damage and twelve people died.
That then led to the Boston tea party were the American colonists dumped the tea into the harbor destroying the mother county's property. The British took action and closed down the harbor. They also had the colonists pay for the tea and had a quartering act put in place (troops stay in private homes of colonists). Therefore the American colonist were not justified because during the massacre the soldiers were defending themselves and they had to pay for their actions of the Boston tea party. In conclusion the British were not justified and able to break away from Britain.
The soldiers fired on the mob of colonists killing three and wounding many others. Samuel Adams sent a delegation to Governor Hutchinson wanting the troops removed. He succeeded in getting them removed and the duties repealed except
There were other reasons such as many unreasonable Acts and laws put into place in attempt to have complete control over the colonists as well as intimidate them and the Boston massacre which 7 people were killed by British soldiers. Britain also forced quartering of British troops in colonist's homes without their permission and prohibited the colonies of having their own town council meetings. 2.
He hated the Irish with a passion, largely because the vast majority of Irish people were Catholics, and he wanted to exact revenge on the Irish for a massacre of English Protestants that had occurred in Ireland 1641. Over the course of the campaign, Cromwell's eagerness to beat the Irish into submission became apparent. The two great confrontations of the Irish War were the siege of Drogheda in September 1649 and the siege of Wexford in October of the same year. Both battles ended in a frenzy of brutality, as Cromwell's army slaughtered Irish civilians and soldiers alike. At Wexford, over 2,000 people were killed inside the city after nine days of bloody resistance to the English siege.
Starting on 23 August 1572 (the eve of the feast of Bartholomew the Apostle) with murders on orders of the king of a group of Huguenot leaders including Coligny, the massacres spread throughout Paris. Lasting several weeks, the massacre extended to other urban centres and the countryside. Modern estimates for the number of dead vary widely between 5,000 and 30,000 in total. The massacre also marked a turning point in the French Wars of Religion. The Huguenot political movement was crippled by the loss of many of its prominent aristocratic leaders, as well as many re-conversions by the rank and file, and those who remained were increasingly radicalized.
North West Company men and half-breeds now resorted to violence on a large scale, killing 22 in the massacre of Seven Oaks (June 19, 1816). Upon hearing of the violence the earl went to the fighting with a group of Swiss soldiers. Not only did they win the battle but also captured the Nor’westers trading post of Fort William. Other attacks followed. The result of these moves was a series of court charges and counter charges that ruined Selkirk.
The colonist acted numerous times to protest against the taxes. Also, there were a group of people known as the Son’s of Liberty whose purpose was to protest whenever needed no matter what it was. The Son’s of Liberty was responsible for “The Boston Tea Party”. This led to violence in the 1760s known as the “Boston Massacre” where the British Soldiers killed five colonists and shot at an angry mob. Additionally, there were battles that included American soldiers and British soldiers at Lexington Concord before the war started.
